Good morning crafters,
I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.  Apologies for the lack of posts recently.  Since returning from the UK, i have been busy trying to get ahead with my DT projects and my 'baby' started school for the first time on Tuesday.  The whole school thing has knocked our routines to pot.  Normally, we go to bed late (son included) and get up late and now we are in bed early and up at 5:45am!  School here starts at 7:40am so it is certainly a shock to our systems! 
Anyway, i should be in more of a routine soon and i should be ahead with my DT projects in the next few days so i will have time to create more, blog more and comment more. Here's hoping!
So, onto today's challenge over at 2 Sisters challenge blog.
This week's theme is: FALL so go on, check out the fab DT inspiration on the 2 Sisters blog and let us see your interpretation of Fall by joining in with the challenge.
There are two sponsors this week.
