Time - Challenge #16

Many thanks for all the wonderful entries for last week's challenge - being Wheel Fun, from the 12 entries, we had a good selection of wheels,  a skateboard, a truck, a cannon, 3 cars, 3 bicycles and 3 Motorbikes, so a total of six different forms of wheeled items.  I am now going to beg forgiveness, because I have today realised I have added the wrong closing date for the entries,  so the GOOD news is you can enter another project, why not try something that is not a card, the BAD news is I can't announce the winners for Challenge #14 until Thursday this week, so please pop back later in the week.
The challenge this week has been chosen by Jan and is TIME - yes, all about Tick Tock. 
The choices are endless, as long as time itself.  I'm not going to give any hints or tips, the Design Team have again provided wonderful inspiration for you, please do visit their blogs for more details. We all hope you enjoy the challenge, please check the few necessary rules.
Remember - We are a Male orientated challenge blog.
Remember - We cover from the shower party to How Old?
Remember - We accept all forms of created paper crafting.

We'll kick off with

Challenge # 15 Wheel Fun

I hope you have all had a lovely Easter, with family and friends and not ate too much chocolate. The weather in the UK has been very kind to us, we have enjoyed a beautiful sunny spring weekend, in most parts of the country.  Thanks you for the wonderful entrants for our challenge last week # 14 The Sky's the Limit.  Kim has chosen the Top 3 , congratulations to them.  If you don't already have a winner's badge, please take one from the tab Winner's and Badges just under the main header.

Many thanks to everyone who took part, you are the makers of the success of the challenge blog, we appreciate your support and do look forward to visiting you.
For this week our challenge was my my choice, most of my family members are males, and yes, most of them throughout time have/are obsessed with anything with wheels, so this is the challenge.....

Challenge #15 - WHEELY FUN

The design team have again created amazing inspiration for you, let's see how they have risen to the challenge.  Being my choice of theme, I get the job to open the Design Team's creations.

To emphasise we are  open to all forms of paper craft and not just cards, I have taken the liberty of adding a scrap book page I made a number of years ago,  the boys are now 18 and 19 yr. old, I don't understand how time goes so fast. 

Thanks to the eight  Design Team who have found five different sets of wheels, we are looking forward to visiting you to see how many varied sets of wheels we have during the next week. Please remember we are a challenge blog for creations suitable for GUYZ whether they be little or big ones. 
Please add your entry by clicking Mr. In Linkz, have fun and thanks for being with us.
