September 2020 - Challenge #21: Anything Goes with Optional Twist: Autumn/Fall

Hello and Welcome to The Paper Funday September Challenge.  Before announcing the winner and Top 3 Honorable Mentions of our August Challenge, we would like to introduce the newest Design Team Members and Guest Designer.  Welcome Ladies!

Angela Fretwell:  I live in Australia, married and mum / stepmum to 2 girls, 1 boy.
I enjoy all paper craft and have for many years. I am finding my way with paints and art journals this year. I love steampunk, unicorns and all things Wonderland.
I look forward to sharing my projects with you all.

Cindy van Oorschot I have been into crafts as long as I can remember. I started out doing needle crafts and then when I went to Holland and met my future sister in-law  I was introduced to paper crafts and been doing it ever since. That was back in 1998. I love to inspire others and am excited to be joining Paper Funday Design team. You can see more of my work on my blog at


Guest Designer:  Amanda (Mandy) Cruxton:  I live in Sutton Coldfield, just outside of Birmingham in the UK with my wonderful husband Paul.  I have been crafty ever since I could use children’s safety scissors!  I've dabbled in all sorts of crafting and since November 2002 pretty much exclusively cardmaking after seeing a demo at the NEC. I love taking part in the challenges and the blogosphere is a constant source of inspiration.
