Anything Goes at Papertake Weekly - Optional Use Newsprint or Book Page

Good afternoon my lovely crafty friends.

Hope you had a lovely weekend. Mine turned out to be quite a busy one as my son and his fiance (Jamie and Rowena) moved house at very short notice - so we took advantage to 'steal' my snuggalicious Granddaughter Ruby Mae and bring her home for a sleepover so they could get on with the unpacking.

So today I'm here to share my DT make for the new challenge over at
