Cupcake Craft Challenge # 47...Black & White

Good morning all, the weeks seem to be flying by at the moment and this week is special because my 15 year old son James is doing his week of work experience at a local primary school and although I know he will be just fine I can't help but be a bit anxious for him on his first day...I hope they are nice to him lol!

It's the last Cupcake Craft Challenge this week..Lauren is moving onto other things and she does not have the time to continue running the blog...I mill miss the challenge blog and I have thoroughly enjoyed being on the DT and I would like to take this opportunity to wish Lauren well for the future. This weeks theme has been set by my lovely DT buddy Lisa and the theme is BLACK & WHITE! I had to have a little think about this theme and then came up with the idea of using this rather cute little digi stamp which is from a collection called Gingersnap Spring Things by CC Designs and I have used papers by Pink Petticoat. The ribbon, flowers and brads are from my craft stash and the circular sentiment was created on the computer using Ali Edwards official font which is available here. TFL :)
