CES DT Piece & Challenges

Yay, its the weekend and a brand new challenge over at the CES Challenge Blog. This weeks them is "Forever Autumn". I chose to make a notebook this week. My mojo's not in full swing atm but hoping things will be a little less hectic next week and hopefully back to normal.
The papers I have used are Papermania. Image is a wooden backed stamp made from my local craft shop which has now closed down. She has been coloured with Aquamarkers which are available over at Crafty Emma's Store.
My DT buddies have made gorgeous cards, they're a talented bunch.

I'm away again this weekend. THANKYOU to all that have sent Daniel birthday cards. He is in for a real treat on Sunday and its going to take a long time to open them all. I will post thanks and names just so you know yours has been received. It means so much to know that there are people out there who do care. Autism is a horrible condition to live with and unfortunately as a parent we don't get manuals. If I could get into his head and understood how he see's things it would be so much easier. I admire any person/parent or carer who is associated with Autism.
Daniels still a little unsettled at school. They are being very patient and he is trying. Hopefully he will settle back into routine soon!

Heres a list of challenges;
Digi Doodle - Show Us Your Fall/Autumn Projects
Oldie But a Goodie - Distressing (Stamps is years old)
Lots to do - Autumnal Colours

Well, were off shortly so I will be back in blogland Monday. Dentist Tuesday and the start of my treatment. Route Canal for the first visit - lovely!!!! NOT

Have a lovely weekend and enjoy any firework displays you maybe going to. Were off to Battle for one Saturday night, then Ten Pin Bowling and A Pizza/Pasta Restaurant for Daniels Birthday.
