The task this challenge fell to our lovely Kelly.

Hi there! Time for me to pick my top entries for our fab "Shake your Groove thing" challenge.
Sadly, there weren't as many entries as we would have liked to have seen,
so I've limited my faves to just three this time.
Without further ado... and in no order at all!


Ladies, Please, Come On Down
To The Winner's Circle


"Otterly Happy Birthday"
Those cute otters were just so awesome. I would never ever have
thought to use hair gel to look like water... Definitely got a tip there!
(psst, Helen, don't forget to link to your actual post next time... 
I did have to search a wee bit - super glad I did)
P1060543 (2)

You spun me right round baby, right round!!
I loved, loved LOVED your card - and so did my boys who spotted it before I did!
Fidget spinner is the ultimate in kinetic cards!

(Must be your lucky day!)
Your sweet 16 was super sweet
Loved how your balloon wiggled on an action wobbler,
and also the shaker windows, so full of movement.
I hope your niece loved the card!

Thanks so much for joining us for our Team Lou Kinetic challenge.
Hope to see you all back for our upcoming challenges!
Happy crafting!
