This blog was thought up by a group of friends who met on another challenge blog that closed. We missed the challenges there and decided that it would be nice to challenge each other by collecting ideas and putting them all into a hat to draw one out each week as a challenge. Now Closed as a challenge blog but here for inspiration for now

Hi All and welcome to another week at Out of a Hat Creations. Always wonderful to see what you make when you join in with us for our challenges.
