TFATU June 2023 Reminder Post Announcement

 We at TFATU are hoping your dreams and wishes are coming true! 

It's close to the midway point of the June 2023 competition ending on the 30th so DT Granmargaret and I are bringing some more magical inspiration to tantalize your creative mojo! 

Come and join our 'always anything fantasy goes' theme competition. Bragging rights are possible. Starting in 2023, the winner will be offered an invite to be a Guest Designer in the following month's competition. And then there are a minimum of Top 3. If there are 41+ entries, there will be a Top 5 which gives a couple of more crafters a chance at bragging rights.

Congrats to our overall top winner from April 2023 who accepted the invite to be June's Guest Design Team member, Jeanette Baker!! 

Hi, my name is Jeanette and I’m from Dorset in the UK. I’ve attempted many crafts over the years but my favourite is paper crafts. I’ve been making cards for over 20 years and always looking for new ideas to improve my skills. It’s been a pleasure to be guest designer for this month. 

Doesn't her little elf got the cutest shoes? Her hair and clothes are all lifting in the sky is what this looks like to me. Please take time to zoom in on the photo to see the glitter on the stars! Jeanette's added all those glittery touches to add magic and sparkle! Bravo!

 for the DT crew's June inspiration projects:

Thank you so much ladies for your fabulous and varied makes!
