Magnolia Down Under Challenge #79

This week at Magnolia Down Under Challenges we are asking you to add, create or incorporate a calendar into your creation. I was originally planning to use a specific month and circle the date on my little calendar page - but then I figured I'd need to know exactly WHO this would be going to - so instead went with the calendar being just an embellishment.

I've used stickles on all the white edges, on the flowers and Tilda's balloon and lace hem - so this is really sparkly IRL. I love this new Tilda from the So Special collection - and the sentiment is from there too. My DP is from 7 Gypsies.

We have a fabulous prize on offer this week too - a limited edition Tilda made especially for our sponsor Crea Shop Dyemelot - so you won't find her anywhere else. I just wish I could enter for a chance to win this cutie!!!

I don't need to tell you that the rest of our DT has some GORGEOUS inspiration for you - in fact I told one of the girls to stop showing me up - LOL. But I'm sooo proud to be part of this fabulously talented team so please make sure you stop by our blog HERE and see WHY!
