September Challenge!

If you are reading this in Australia, then I am sure there will be a few smiles as we officially wave goodbye to winter for yet another year and welcome spring! It's a time for new life, fresh beginnings and of course for us here at SUYS, a brand new challenge!

This month the challenge has been set by ME (Sue) and I have a colour challenge for you all...

Your challenge is to create a layout using {black + white + one other colour}, and you must also include a handmade embellishment somewhere on your layout. Easy right?

Not only have I set the challenge for you this month, but I am also sponsoring it (well my poor neglected little business is anyway, hehe). This month's sponsor is Lovelybug Bits n Bobs.

As I said, poor Lovelybug has been quite neglected of late, but I am sure I have PLENTY of goodies stashed away in my cupboard to put together a fabulous prize pack for our winner.
(You can find the Lovelybug Bits n Bobs Facebook page HERE and see some previous prize packs that have been donated.) I will pop back later in the month to share more details about Lovelybug and the prize pack.

Now, time for the reveal from our Design Team...

Happy scrapping! :)
