Allsorts Week 68 - New Beginnings

Good morning everyone. Welcome to another new challenge here at Allsorts as chosen by me (Debs). But first a great big THANK YOU to all that took the time to join in the fun with Helene's Garden/Park challenge last week - don't forget to check the previous post to see if you were the lucky winner or if you made TOP5.

So this week and next week will be the start of the new school year for most school children in the UK and for my son (and lots more 11 year olds) it also sees the beginning of a new milestone they have reached - moving up to 'BIG' school.
So when I saw it was my turn to pick the theme this week, I immediately knew I wanted to have
'NEW BEGINNINGS' as the theme. 

We are delighted to have another Guest Designer with us this month and are thrilled to welcome Vicky from Stamp Addicts. Vicky and her sister Sarah run the family owned business and we are all familiar with their faces from their regular shows on Create and Craft and craft exhibitions around the Country. Those of us lucky enough to live in the region know what a wonderful selection of stamps and craft products can be found at their shop, but if you are unable to visit the store everything can be purchased from their on line store.

As it is the first of the month we have our regular sponsor this week

and 1 lucky winner picked using will win 10 digi images of their choice.
Here is the card Vicky made for us this week:


And here is some gorgeous inspiration from the DT


(my new school year calendar)

Hope you can join us this week.

Also - don't forget we have our other challenge still running over at:
