New Challenge and a Sad Farewell!

Welcome Friends to a New Challenge!

Before we get to that.... I have a sad,
 but necessary announcement to make!
This will be Sheri's last challenge as one of the STB designers!

We hate to see her go, 
but however completely understand
 her needing to free up a little bit of her time!

Thanks so much for all you have given to the STB Team Sheri,
infront and behind the scenes!   Your talented self will be truly missed!

HUGS from all of us!

Okay onto the challenge!

Our "Toppings" option is

Buttons and Rhinestones
( Any type of Bling will work!)

Just remember to keep it a Birthday Theme!

If your not a toppings kinda person, can just
stick with our usual "Anything Goes"Birthday!

The choice is yours!

Let's go see what our Design team has created for you!
