Cupcake 166... Take a leaf out of my book

Well hello again. How lovely to see you. If you're in my part of the world, did you enjoy the extra hour in bed yesterday? Go on, hands up, who forgot all about it? ;)

Wowsers, you totally rocked Sari's Denim and Lace theme last week! As always, thanks so much for sharing your gorgeous creations with us, we really love coming to see you all.

We say goodbye to our fabby Guest Designer, Keeley this week. Thanks so much for being such a super Cupcake.

So, time for another Cupcake folks. This week, it's Shelly's turn to choose the Challenge and with the clocks going back here, and things feeling decidedly autumnal, she has chosen:

... Take a leaf out of my book ...

We'd like to see you using leaves as the main focus of your project. Either in the image, the embellishments or papers you use. We don't mind, so long as it's all about the leaves.

You have until 8pm, GMT on Sunday 06 November to place your entry for this challenge. Have fun.


We have a Winner for last weeks sponsored Challenge and we’ve also chosen our Cupcake Cuties.

Here are the winners:
