Challenge # 27: Pegs

Hi all, I hope you had a fantastic week so far. 
A very big welcome to all our new followers and Dragonfly hugs to our wonderful friends and sponsors. Thanks so much for supporting this Challenge Blog.
What a wonderful array of projects we had with the last challenge. My goodness, that might take me a while to sort, you guys really like your anything goes....

We didn't have a winners post for Challenge 25 as all the entries had to be disqualified....even though they were all gorgeous, but non of them actually met the requirements which was to use a CD either on the card or as a card. So it was a Card Challenge, and you had to use an actual CD on the card, 
not the content of one.
Oh well, never mind......don't think I will be using that theme


Another bit of news:
300 follower candy.
Once we reach 300 followers, I will do a random select and that person will receive a surprise gift.
So that could be you!! If you are a follower that is...


This fortnight we do have a challenge with a difference. And that is PEGS. Now I mainly mean the wooden ones, small, large or the dolly pegs. Whatever takes your fancy.
They can be decorative, useful, such as magnets or just to hold things, could be on a card or something. Let your imagination roam. We do not have a sponsor for this one so the winner will receive a surprise gift from me, yeah!!
So here are some beautiful examples from the Dragonflies, enjoy!!

This idea is from Tania, so useful, she used washi tape....very useful and clever!!

Wynn used a similar idea for her craft organisation, another very clever idea.

Sammy made some gorgeous pegs to use on this as a magnet board

 CG used them on a card to make a Dragonfly- Very clever

Susan is planning ahead and has made some Christmas Angels with her Dolly Pegs

Hilde made 3 pegs with magnets at the back to use on the fridge

So there you have it, a wonderful assortment of ideas for you to try out....
Looking forward to seeing your wonderful creations, blessings Hilde and the Dragonfly team.

So sorry for some reason I cannot get the inlinkz to go to the bottom of this post, so please go to the top of this post and enter, ( don't ask) thanks....H
