August - I hear you say, soon we will be mentioning the C word and how close is that.  The season where we all spend our money for the sake of one day lol.  Enough about that because we have a new challenge here to look forward to and as always it is 

First of I would like to thank everyone for sharing your beautiful projects with us last month.  I am so pleased the team vote on them and do not leave it all up to lil' ol' me to sort out the winners lol.  Once again the theme is ANYTHING GOES - as long as it is altered or mixed media.  We hope you will come and join in but before you go link up below take a good long look at the what the fabulously talented DT ladies have made - are they or are they not gorgeous! I am so so pleased to have them all on board for our creative journey.  Now for the DT projects and why not head on over to their blogs and leave them some love.
