Allsorts Challenge 326

Hello my lovely crafty friends, my post is a bit later today than usual - l have not had much time this week as we have been away on our jollies again. A fab week in the Scottish Highlands just chilling but a long drive for me today, almost 400 hundred miles with Toby on front seat and hubby and son in the back - Toby likes to sit next to his mama lol x

The new challenge started today over at Allsorts and the lovely Brenda has chosen
I just took a very small small bag of craft bits and no inspiration with me and just as time was running out l spotted my recycle piece - the board a chocolate cake was sitting on, it just needed a good wipe clean.

The design team have some lovely inspiration to share with you here along with all the details
