*B* Thirsty Thursday

Welcome back to week two of Thirsty Thursdays! To remind those new to the blog Thirsty Thursday is where we quench your creative thirst with out our alphabet challenge series which this week is on the letter B. Your challenge is to take inspiration from one or more of the "B" prompts below to make a layout, card or another crafty project. You can join in every week or as and when you are able, there are no deadlines just plenty of crafty fun! So lets get inspiring with the letter B...

B is for Back to School - Plenty of school children including my own are back at school this week after the summer holidays, indeed it is my youngest sons' first day today! How about creating a back to school themed page for this weeks challenge? If you've no children, well then how about some school days lined/grid paper being used on your page, or maybe a ruler?

B is for Bo Bunny - Use your favourite Bo Bunny papers on a layout for this challenge. Have you seen their latest collection Etcetera? It is a bit different from their usual style of papers.

B is for Buttons - I'm sure we all have plenty of these in our craft stores, lets dig them out and use them for this challenge

B is for Basic Grey - we have over 300 different Basic Grey products in the store and one of my favourite ranges from them in their Basics line - even includes some lined and grid paper! Why not dig out your favourite Basic Grey products this week.

B is for BRADS - Add that finishing touch to your projects this week with some brads be they mini, ornate, flocked, fabric or even glazed - lets use them on our pages this week.

As promised we will not only provide some challenge prompts each week, but also share a couple of projects from the design team that meet one or more of the challenges.

Mel is sharing this layout she made using Bo Bunnys "Olivia" range. Ironically not scrapping her Olivia but Isabelle instead! The colours in the range make it perfect for scrapping spring, summer and autumn layouts so very versatile! You can see all the Bo Bunny products HERE and the Bo Bunny Olivia range HERE

Karen shares this gorgeous Button and Brad framed monogram project she has created for her daughter. So vibrant and fun!

Remember you can pick these challenges up as and when you like, they will stay up on the blog indefinitely. If you've not has a chance yet take a look at the letter A challenge posted last week and we will be back next Thirsty Thursday with the letter C.

We look forward to seeing your layouts, cards or other papercraft creations using the letter B prompts - be sure to share your projects with us using the link below and leave us lovely comments letting us know how you are getting on with the challenge! At the end of the month we will draw a random challenge entry from the Thirsty Thursday entries of that month to win a little something from the store.
