Challenge #8 - For The Kids

Good morning crafty friends, hope you're all well.
I can't believe we're about to start the 8th challenge.....doesn't time
 fly when you're having fun.....and I sure am having fun! I thank you all
 so much for taking the time to join in with my challenges.
I love this time of the year......the cooler weather, the darkening nights
......oh, and the kids going back to school & college!
So, this time the theme is going to be......


A pair of decoupaged toppers from me, both the same size, the same layout
 and both from the same collection........Whiz Kids from Trimcraft. A fab
mix of papers, decoupage toppers, sentiment banners, gems, ribbons..
.....and a few more, I'm sure! I started with my favourite base of black,
added some distressed paper layers, a decoupaged topper then finished
with a sentiment & some faux gems.

This month I'm so chuffed to have my lovely blog buddy, Michelle from
joining me as Guest Designer..........
Hi - I live in Buxton, Derbyshire with my fella, son Brandon and naughty but cute cat Sybil.  I started my papercrafting journey with scrapbooking after my son was born in 2006.  Not long after I started making cards and was hooked.  I love colouring digi stamps and turning them into cards but I also enjoy cross stitch and adult colouring.  There's just not enough hours in the day for all that I enjoy doing!

and here's what Michelle made......
isn't that just adorable? Michelle makes the prettiest card.....why not
pop over to her won't be disappointed.
