October Challenge!

Well here we are - definitely into the pointy end of the year with the last term of school for the year for Aussie kids starting soon. Which means that things are about to get HECTIC! Whatever you do, don't let the month pass you by so quickly that you don't get a chance to scrap! ;)

And on that note I give you this month's challenge, brought to you by our very own super talented DT member Leanne Jago...

{And yes, that is one of Leanne's own photos in the graphic!}

That's right, this month there are NO PEOPLE allowed in your photographs! Instead we want to see what inspires you, what interests you, what makes your heart happy...somewhere, something - anything other than people! And of course, don't forget to include a handmade embellishment somewhere on your creation too!

This month our challenge is being sponsored by the very lovely and very talented Agnus Kasprzak from {scrAp this!}
