Allsorts Challenge wk 246

Hello my lovelies, hope you are all having a crafty weekend.  Today sees the start of this weeks challenge over at Allsorts and this weeks it is
I am sure all of you will have Brads somewhere in your crafty area's but can you remember where??? I have to admit l have rather a lot of them , diamante, pearl, small metal, large metal, snowflakes, trees, flowers, hearts and all within arms reach so l did'nt have to go searching.  There must have been a time when l collected them (photo below) - remember when you started out and just had to have everything lol.
The design team have been busy and created some fabulous pieces to share with you, check out the challenge blog here with all the details and the lovely prizes too.
This is a new stamp l bought recently that was on offer - along with a few other sets, it is the first time l have coloured these Happy Hoppers so hope l have got the colours ok.
