Morning everyone! Can you believe it! It's the 1st of Septemeber already so its time for a new challenge over at the Cupcake Craftroom!

The challenge for Septemeber is the colour combo of Pink & Green which is Mandy's Fave colour combo! So we would love to see anything using the colours of Pinks and Greens of course!  You can use any shade of them as long as your main colours are of that colour combo and skin and hair colour is excluded (or you would have yourselves a very pretty alien) LOL

There will be one winner personally chosen as usual for this month's challenge who will receive the 'Pretty' paper collection. (Pictured below).  Click here to buy it now! 

Here's my creation using the new papers for my cousin Holly who will be 13!! OMG i can remember here when she was a kiddo at the age of 8 as being my flower girl for my wedding where does the time go?! So i thought Lil Pinketee August would be very apt for her as she does love music and plays a few instruments too so i've added a pink music sheet that ive made myself so tie in the music theme! So here it is:
