Sassy Cheryl - Fall Colours - last post

Another week has flown by and this will be my last post for Sassy Cheryl's. I have decided to step down after being one of the original sassy sista DT members. I will miss the ladies immensely and will be checking up on them regularly, but I feel it is time to move on and hopefully this will give another lady a wonderful opportunity to join a fantastic design team.
Anyhoo..this week I have used my all time favourite Sassy Cheryl image "Button flower", (bet the girls would have guessed what image I would use!!!) for our challenge this week at Sassy Cheryl's challenge "fall colours".So jump on over and see what the amazingly gifted ladies have created.
Thanks Cheryl for having me on your team, and goodbye my wonderful sassy sistas, love to you all.... I will be watching!!! LOL

DT Call

It has been a fantastic year for us at Southern Girls Challenge and we are ready for another one!
We are on the hunt for a few more DT Members to join our happy little group. If you think you may be interested, check out the following info..........

We are an open blog so any type of paper crafters can apply.

We are a fortnightly challenge and the team is split into 2 groups so you are only required to do 1 project per month.

We have lots of fabulous sponsors and sometimes they give us images to work with (YAY) you are in no way obligated to use these images but it is cool if you do :)

We are pretty chatty, about loads of stuff not just crafting, so be prepared to work those fingers in our group message center.

You will need a blog.

If this sounds like a DT that may appeal to you please contact Lou & Trace at THIS EMAIL ADDRESS LINK!!!!!! with an email telling us a little about yourself, any current (if any) DTs you are on, fav techniques/ syles that sort of thing and attach your fave 3 projects for us to see and also add a link to your blog please.

We are looking forward to perusing the hundreds of applicants emails and eagerly await all your lovely blog links :)

Call closes 5th October 2011, we know it is pretty quick but we want to be organised before Lou has her baby due in October.
