Happy 1st Day of Spring!!!

Oh its so good to be able to say that hey! The weather here lately in Central Queensland has been absolutely gorgeous!

So being a new month brings on new challenges and lots other exciting things!!

Today I will share with you all the new challenge for September for Purple Pumpkin.

We've decided to change things up a bit this time, and the fabulous Belinda from the Design Team suggested we do a 123 challenge. So the challenge is to use the following on your layout/card:

1 Lollipop/Flower
2 Doilies
3 Buttons
Here is my layout....
He Dreams of boats & fishing...... We really enjoyed our little outing this day.  On the spur of the moment we decided to head out to a dam with camping facilities just 1.5hrs north west of Emerald. All the boys could talk about for the next couple of days was boats and fishing....its such a boy thing hey!
2 paper doilies that came in a the PP packs last month are behind this photo....

Close up of 1 little button and my lollipop flower from Purple Pumpkin and some gorgeous Prima....

Sorry this photo is just a little out of focus but here are the other 2 PP buttons.

And my newest craze...!!! Misted bandage gauze!!! I know its been around for ages but I found some while unpacking and decided to have a little play...I love this so much that I have used it on a few more layouts which you will see soon :))))

Feeling inspired? You have until the 30th of September to complete this challenge and link it up. There will be two fabulous Purple Pumpkin prizes - one winner will be chosen by the design team, and the second will be a random prize draw.

Can't wait to see what you create!
