Challenge 208 - 8th Birthday Special Challenge

Hello friends of Time Out!

We are here with a very special challenge: It's our 8th birthday!! 

To celebrate we have A LOT of prizes up for grabs and we also have 4 of our former DT members joining us in the fun, woot woot! One of the former designers is Sandie, the creator and long time leader of Time Out! Sandie and Nonni established this challenge back in 2014. Time Out is proof of how wonderful the crafty blogland is. This challenge is a result of what begun as an online crafty friendship and developed into what we believe will be a life long relationship. 

A big thank you to Sandie for being the main leader of Time Out all the way until May 2021.

 The challenge has remained pretty similar over the 8 years of it's existence. We follow a rotation of 4 different types of challenges, we have amazing sponsor prizes and we also always invite our challenge winners to guest design for us. 

The Time Out Design Team is the core of this challenge and we are very grateful to have this talented group of crafters providing inspiration for us challenge after challenge. Congratulations to everyone on the team. Happy Birthday to Us! 

To celebrate our 8th birthday we, of course, have EIGHT sponsors in this challenge!! That's quite something, right?? Here's what our generous sponsors are offering:
