August Challenge - Teddy Bear Parade! Optional - Lots of Layers!

Hi and welcome to Augusts Challenge at Crafty Calendar!

As always we had a amazing turn out last month and thank you for being understanding and giving our DT a month off from commenting. We all appreciated the little break and will be back to normal this month.

This month we have to say goodbye to one of our DT members, Laura.
Laura is starting out on her own new venture and is starting her own challenge blog.
Her challenge is called Songbird Challenges and will be a musical themed challenge which starts on the 6th August.
We all wish you good luck with everything, Laura!

As always here are some reminders...
