The Outlawz is 7!!!

Welcome to the Outlawz Blog Hop as we celebrate the Outlawz turning 7! It is a great place to find - I came across it 6 years ago and been lurking around ever since! We have a different challenge start each day and every challenge is different so you won't get bored and there is always something to suit everyone each week! We also have some great sponsors for the daily challenges as well as site wide challenges where you can win a prize just for uploading a project to the monthly inlinks! We publish a winners page every month so be sure to check it out to see if you are a winner!
We also have a progressive/freebie challenge every month starting on the 1st of each month. We have had images from countless digi artists and as we're not tied to any company each month is a surprise!
But apart from the great challenges and prizes the best thing about the Outlawz is the support you get from other crafters - you don't have to be super experienced to join in, we love to see new crafters just starting on their journey jump in and share their work with us; all the members are so supportive and I can tell you nothing that is hand crafted is 'bad' everything that you take time and love to craft is beautiful and should be shared with pride!
I am the Leader of the Colour Challenge and love developing challenges to make our members use their crafting skills to create beautiful projects! I am also part of the Festive Fridays team and the Progressive team so you will see me pop up all over the place!
For our bloghop Andrea Norris the brilliant artist behind Sheepski Designs has give us a beautiful image to use called 'Sunflowers'.
I coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils and tried to keep with the rustic feel of this beautiful image so I used some woodgrain backing paper along with a nice bitter chocolate floral from a pad that was on sale in The Works, the wooden corners were also from The Works, I finished off with a lovely big yellow bow!
Now all the team have made a project with this gorgeous images so make sure to hop over and see all the projects as there are prizes hiding on every blog!
