'Monochroming it up for bee-crafty DT'

Hi my crafty friends,

I've only a 1 week left in my London job - HURRAH! Which means just 7 days to go until I get time to start crafting more again and entering more of the ever increasing number of fab new challenge blogs that I've found whilst blog hopping recently. One new one I've found this week is the re-launch of the basic grey challenges here. Oh, and there's fab blog candy to be had; my fave is the gorjuss girls give away here.

Right, now for this fortnight's DT project which is happening over at It's all about colouring this week. I was in the mood for a bit of monochrome and this is what I came up with....
