So this week the challenge is Bingo! So I spent hours drawing up a Bingo card, permutating (is that a word even? but it should be) all the options and taking steps to work out every eventuality.... OK I drew up a quick chart and filled it in.... So you need to pick a line...vertical, horizontal or diagonally, or if you're adventurous all four corners.










So here's the inspiration and the guest Gorjussettes.

Challenge 101 - Ooh la la!

Bonjour mes amis! I've gone a little bit Francais - well I've just been on holiday to France! I LURVE France. I mean I love America too but the flight.... the traipsing around hauling cases and and luggage, the vile food on the planes, the kid behind you who kicks your seat all the way there.... Whereas the France trip is a drive in the car, hop on the ferry, a nice meal in the restaurant go to bed and wake up and you're there! Of course I'm not including the debate we have over who has the dreaded top bunk! Just for your info this time I got the short straw! Why can't the ladder rungs be more comfy for your feet? So what I'm saying - albeit in my usual round the houses way is that's the story behind this weeks theme... But first you want to know who won last week! Well the RPT picked Kath email me with the challenge number in the title and I'll sort your prize. The lucky commenter is Samantha, email me too ;))

So as i said I've been to France so I fell a little bit Ooh la la! So that's the theme this weeks! Lets have a bit of ooh la la please! This week we're sponsored by Crafters Companion, the lucky winner will get £10 to spend online. A little Birdie tells me that there's something new just around the corner too :))

Now the Gorjussettes went extra Ooh la la! You ready to be inspired?

So are you up for some Ooh la la? There's a prize to tempt you!
