Jem's Challenge!

Hi guys,

Sorry it has taken me so long to post this piccie but I have been having a nightmare with computer since last week and Internet etc. It has driven me mad!!

Anyway, now that hopefully I am back up and running, I wanted to post my version of this months Jem's Challenge. My stampin up 'family' have a challenge every month that we send each other exactly the same kit and all post what we have made at a certain time on a certain date! This months kit was produced by the wonderful Sarah, who is the queen of 3d projects and here is what I came up with....

I have had a wonderful weekend, went to an all day class at the wonderful Sugar & Spice in Billericay on Saturday! Then lots of family stuff!!!
Hope you have all had a wonderful weekend too and been enjoying the sunshine!!
