The Paper Shelter Summer Break Challenge

Good morning everyone and welcome to an extra challenge post from me for The Paper Shelter Challenge blog. This week is the start of our 4 week Summer Break Challenge, which we do every summer to give our DTs a bit of a summer vacation to spend with their families.

This challenge is an anything goes one, will last for four weeks and the DT will not be commenting on your projects either.
