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

Hello Friends and Followers-hope your week has gone well so far.

Just a quick message before the challenge post. I am not sure if everyone know's that Blogger Reader is said be withdrawn on July 1st. Alison at Words and Pictures has written a great message about it and has given us permission at The Hatters to add a link to the post on our sidebar so if you would like to know more please click on the top picture on the right and visit the post. Thank you Alison.

Nice to see the projects of the people who joined in with us for the Tickets Please Challenge-great ideas as always.

This week the Theme is A Tag Book. I can hear you saying, 'that is a lot of ask in one week', but you don't need to make the whole book even though that would be nice to see. Just make the Front page and any others you have time for.

Challenge 63-Tickets Please

Hello Everyone. Hope you have had a good week and that the sun is shining where you are.

Loved your makes for the Jewel in the Crown with all the different takes on the theme.

Thank you to Von for being our guest in May and for making such terrific projects.

This month we welcome Tracy as our guest and this is what she has to say about herself.

I have always been a creative person who has dabbled in diy projects or crafty things, but it wasn’t until a couple of years ago that I discovered my love of paper crafts.  It all started when I decided to make the birthday invitations, decorations and loot bags for my son’s 5th birthday party.  As I researched how to do this, a whole new, amazing and creative world opened up to me.  Since then, I have become an independent consultant for an American paper crafting company called Close To My Heart,and a design team member for another fabulous little company called My Time Made Easy.  This month, I am extremely proud and excited to be a guest DT member for Out of a Hat Creations.  Over the last year, these ladies have continuously inspired me to think outside the creative box, and for this I am extremely grateful.  Hats off to you ladies, and thanks for the invite!

The challenge this time is Tickets Please and you can make anything you like so long as there is a ticket somewhere on it. If you click on the names under the pictures you can go to our blogs and learn more about how we made our projects and we hope you will find time to say hello whilst you are there
