Hello everyone

First off I need to apologise for being late putting this challenge up.  Time ran away from me.

I am not going to rattle on and on but I do want to thank all the DT for all their ongoing support this year.  It has been a rough year for me and have not entered my craft room for 10 months now and I am getting a little worried that my mojo has completely left me.

The challenge theme as always is ''Fall'' so anything autumnal - this leaves alot of scope as beautiful colours to work with .

Anyway here are the lovely ladies DT projects and once again I apologise.

July Challenge - Red, White and Blue

Firstly I would like to make my apologies re my continued absence over the past few months.  I have a lot of problems with my daughter at the moment following the death of my father a few months ago.  Everything just got on top of me so badly that I have not even been in my craft room - my mojo and inspiration has gone on a long haul sabbatical.  Only one good thing is happening in August and i will be reducing my working hours so maybe that will make a difference - Heres to HOPE!!!  I want to say a gigantic THANKYOU for my wonderful DT for keeping this blog going for me.  i don't know what I would do without them - Thank you again girls xx

Anyway enough of my problems and lets just get on with the reason we are all here to get on with sharing creations.  

It is half way through the year and here we are with a new challenge for July and the theme this month is Red, White and Blue.  

Lets get straight to the beautiful DT makes to share with you
