Challenge 11: Anything Goes or Scary but Cute

Hi there!

Time flies past!
We are already in autumn and presenting Challenge 11.
Very soon it's going to be the first anniversary of the presentation of our DT
and we are going to throw in a partty!
Can you guess??
Yes, it will be a Halloween party!!

But for now, we are going to present the current challenge
with the theme Anything Goes or Scary but Cute, if you prefer.

Today we have a Guest Designer.
For some of us she is a friend, a teacher, and example to follow on.
An internationally recognized crafter,
she is a great colourer and the only certified Copic Instructor in Spain.
And we are very happy to have her with us here today.
I leave you with her project and a presentation on her own words.

 I'm Cristina Valenzuela.
 I live near Barcelona, I have a 6 year old daughter
and I try to give colour to all the days of my life.
It is a pleasure for me to be Guest Designer in Aliciabel Challenge Blog
because her stamps are adorable.
Thank you so much for letting  me be here!

Today we also want to introduce the New Member of our Design Team,
We knew her though her entries in our challenges and we loved them.
So much that, finally, we decided to asked her if she would like to join us.
 And we were so lucky that she accepted!
Here there is her project and a presentation on her own words.

I'm Vannessa and just turned the big 4-0 this summer, which made me realise that being 40 is no big deal at all. You're as old as you feel! I am a primary school teacher during the day, teaching a lively class of 7-8 year olds but I love it. I live with my partner of 18 years and our very spoilt cat Tallulah.

I started card making about 9 years ago now as something to keep me occupied during the long summer holidays and started with a very cheap £5 set from eBay but I soon got hooked and that £5 has been multiplied several times over! I love to colour with my Copics and you will notice I love my layers and embellishments on my cards too. Also if I can get away with it, a fair amount of pink creeps into my cards as well LOL

I discovered AliciaBel stamps a while ago when I found their first challenge whilst blog hopping around the internet and just had to buy a few images there and then! I was so incredibly excited when Aurora asked me to join the team and even more excited that Hallowe'en is the theme for my first DT project as it's my favourite celebration. Love anything creepy and spooky! Hugs, Vannessa x

Thank you Vannessa for joining us.

And now, I will leave you with the rest of the projects that our Dream Team 
has made for your inspiration.

Virginia using Surprise 

Beatriz using Dora the Protecting Witch

Maria using Sally

Aurora using Berta Barton

Hope yoy liked this and decide to join us.
Have a nice weeked.

Alicia, Aurora and the DT.
