Hi Colette here, welcome to another Teddy Bo Challenge, Gayle has returned from her holidays with a kidney infection and is out of action at the moment, so we are going to start our fortnightly challenge using some oldies but goodies, and hopefully we will have some new images to play with next week for the midway reminder.

We will announce the winners of the last challenge in the next few days as the DT are still trying to make their minds up.

The Masculine Challenge closes on Sunday 5th August and the prize is
