A Sad Farewell at Papertake Weekly

Good afternoon my lovely crafty friends.

I have soooooo NOT been looking forward to writing this post as it is to share my DT make for the very last challenge over at 

and as it's the last challenge we have the theme of 


Well with so many amazing challenges over so many amazing years thanks to our amazing leader Dawny P - it was sooooooo hard to narrow it down so I bottled it and went for something seasonal for a special person in my life and chose the theme


and here's what I did

Most of the DT will be having a prize giveaway of their own on their posts today and I too have a mystery prize to give to one commenter on my post - but you do have to enter the challenge as well in order to win the prizes. All winners will be picked by each DT member from the comments left on their own posts and announced next week on the main PTW challenge winner post.
Before I sign off I would just like to take the opportunity to thank Dawny and ALL the team at Papertake Weekly for all they have done and for giving me the chance to work alongside such a fabulous talented bunch of crafty girls - THANK YOU.

Thank you too for popping by and for all your continued support and encouragement - I really do appreciate it.
Have a fabulous day.
