Challenge 8 week 4

Good morning!

Can you believe we're already on week four of our challenge?  Where does the time go?

Our theme this month is Stitching Faux or Real.  Remember as long as you follow the theme you can make anything you like; cards, ATCs, 3D projects, altered items, etc...  You can also use any image from any company.  The challenge will run until midnight on Sunday, September 30, so you still have a few more days to get your entries in.

Before we get to the inspiration for this week, we'd like to thank our sponsor Fresh Brewed Designs.


Now, on to the inspiration from out team...

Patti (who will be joining us from the Event team from now on)






Thank you for stopping by.  Remember next week we will start our next challenge.
