Just Magnolia Challenge and Dylan Graduates!!

Here is my card for the fabby new Just Magnolia Challenge, they have a fantastic DT and have had a huge amount of entries, I think we're all excited to have a Magnolia only challenge back again!! Well done girls!! There is a fantastic sketch to follow, here is the card I made...

I used quite an old image of Tilda, I think these tend to get neglected now she's got all pretty, but there is a charm to the early ones which I love! I coloured her with Lyra Aquacolours and used Daisy and Dandelion papers. Quite a simple card but pretty all the same...

And then here is a picture of my little star!

There is a photography company who specialise in graduation photos for children, this photo was taken to celebrate Dylan's Graduation from nursery to school in September (don't they just think of everything nowadays!!) What I really like about the company is that they give you the image on a disc with the copyright so I'm able to share it here!

I've told Mr Becky that he's got to go to uni now cause he's letting the side down he he!!

Have a great day whatever you're doing!

Love Becky xx
