Just Magnolia Monthly Challenge

Good morning and welcome to a brand new challenge from Just Magnolia. This is our monthly challenge and we have set up a new blog to make it simpler to know which challenge goes where. Remember to become a follower so you do not miss a thing! This challenge is sponsored solely by Simon Says Stamp and each month one lucky winner will win $50 to spend on their website!!

The beautiful Rach has set this months challenge which is to decorate a brown paper bag. I must admit that I needed it to breath into first to stop me hyperventilating, lol. I eventually calmed down and soon realised that it is just the same as decorating a card .... phew! I followed the fab sketch from this weeks Friday Sketchers .... isn't it gorgeous!

I have used my fab new summer kit .... it is so delish, love every singe stamp! The papers were a freebie out of a magazine and I just love the fruity summer theme. My gorgeous MS valentine punch is making another appearance ... think this might be my new favourite (still love my doily though).

A closer peep and my little green fingered Tilda - she must look after her plants well to get a flower that size! I took my colour combo from the papers and think it is lovely. I am really keen on aqua at the moment - it is so fresh :o) The pretty flowers are from Dies to Die For ... scrummy Petaloo mini delphiniums aren't they just gorgeous!
Ok, better get off to work .... groan. Remember to check the rest of the DTs creations - they absolutely AMAZING!!!!! Have a wonderful day!
