Cupcake 159... Back to School

Morning, morning, morning! Time for another Cupcake...

Wow, you love your patchwork! We really enjoyed all of your projects last week. We had such a hard time choosing our Cuties. Thanks, as always for taking the time to play along. It wouldn't be the same without you. :)

If you'd like a chance to Guest Design for us and pick your very own Cupcake Cuties, you still have time to enter our Choose the Challenge Competition...

Late last weekend, Very Understanding Hubby and I heard a bit of a commotion outside. Further investigation revealed a stunning firework display. I'm talking thousands of pounds worth of fireworks here. Very Understanding Hubby asked me what is was for, me being the font of all knowledge and all! As I didn't really know, I said it was some parents celebrating as the school holidays were over!

Which brings me very nicely onto the theme that our lovely Jane has chosen this week:

... Back to School ...

We'd like to see your creations including something to do wth school.

You have until 8pm, GMT on Sunday 18 September to place your entry for this challenge. Have fun!
