* Challenge #48 * Fairies and or Butterflies *

Good morning all and welcome to a new challenge here at Sparkles Monthly
Sorry this is quite a long post this month but please do read.
Many thanks to all those who joined us on our last challenge we didn't have many join us last month but those that did were gorgeous projects I had a hard job to choose our top 3 & unfortunately we can only choose 1 prize winner
Please scroll down to post below and check out if you are our winner.

Before i go onto a new challenge i have some very sad news to announce
Lesley our very dear friend & team mate has decided the time has come to step down from the DT
Lesley has been with us since day 1 and has been a very active team member who will be very much missed, but we understand her reasons for stepping down, sadly paper crafting is not her first passion anymore and so feels she must move on
Thank you Lesley for being a fab team mate we wish you all the very best in whatever you choose in life. 
hugs the team xxx

We also said goodbye to Tracey this month although Tracey was with us for only 1 month Tracey has had family problems and had to leave us.
We have managed to find 2 new members to join us.
