Midweek Magnolias DT #96 Back to School

Good Morning my dears,  It's time for a new challenge over at

This fortnight we would love to see your creations with the theme 

"Back To School"

As you can see I decided to make a corner bookmark using sweet Write a Message Tilda from the Lost & Found collection 2013
and coloured her using copics and derwent soft pencils.

My papers once again are from a very old collection of papermania basics spots and checks which have been in my storage box for at least 2 years.  I'm slowly getting them all used up before I invest in any more papers.  

The little notebook and diploma I made from scraps of paper. The lace and ribbon are from my stash.

Please take the time to pop over and take a peek at the stunning work the fab DT have created for you this week. They are amazing.

Our sponsor as always is the fabulous Magnolia Sweden

Midweek Magnolias DT #95 Decorate a Gift bag or Box

Good morning my dears,  It's Wednesday which means it's time for another new challenge over at 

This fortnight we would love to see you 

"Decorate a Gift Bag or Box" 

As you can see I decided to decorate a gift bag and I used sweet Buzz Tilda from the new Pink Lemonade collection.  She has been coloured using Flex Markers and Derwent pencil soft pencils. 

The papers are Melissa Francis and were a gift from my DT buddy Chris over at Magnolia-licious.  I've had them since Christmas but didn't want to use them as they are so so pretty.  Now that I have I will certainly be using them a lot more. 

Our sponsor is of course the fabulous Magnolia Sweden and if you follow the very simple rules then you could be receiving an amazing surprise package with lovely Magnolia goodies inside.
