Cupcake Craft Challenge # 48...Blossoms & Butterflies

Wow, what a busy week last week and no time for resting over the weekend either...too much to do lol! Sophie did really well at her baton twirling competition yesterday, she competed in three team events, ribbon, flag and baton and her team were placed first in each one...the girls came home with a real haul of medals and trophies...Amethyst Flames you rock!!!

There's been a bit of a change of ownership over at the Cupcake Craft Challenge blog...Lauren announced that she wasn't able to continue running the blog due to other commitments...the DT were all ready to hang up their hats until someone came forward at the last minute to take over the running of the blog...that someone being me lol! I'm hoping that I haven't bitten off more than I can chew but the DT have been very supportive so I won't have to do it all by myself...thanks girls for being such stars :)

Anyway, onto this weeks theme which has been set by the incredibly talented Liza and she has chosen a theme of Blossoms & Butterflies...fantastic...I thoroughly enjoyed this one Liza...thank you :) pop over to Liza's blog if you want to be wowed...she has some stunning creations on there!
