September Challenge

Hello everyone

September already - I cant believe how quickly this year has gone - The ''C'' word is almost upon us and it was brought home to me when someone mentioned on Facebook that they have finished their Christmas shopping already!!!!

Anyway enough of that I just want to thank everyone who entered into our last challenge and hope you will be this month. I also apologise if I appear missing with my projects and not leaving comments on everyone's projects.  I have not been well over the last few weeks and been unable to keep on top of my life and blogging responsibilities.  

As always it is Anything goes as long as it is mixed media/altered art

Now for the fabulously talented DT and their projects
