Magnolia Down Under Challenge #22

I had done so much work on the last Magnolia Down Under Challenge, but I totally lost track of the cut off date (and I even had it almost finished it too : (, oh well I'll save it for another time). I was really excited though by the latest Magnolia Down Under Challenge - Anything but a Card. I love anything 3D, but what to do, what to do????

I had coloured in Beach Tilda a little while ago, and while going through my Scrapbooking papers I found some great paper that gave me an idea to cut out some of the images to put together a Summer Survival Kit. Its a tin case with everything you need for the summer days outdoors (which is finally heading our way) - sunscreen (a must in Australia), insect repellant (another must in Australia), body butter and lip balm.

After doing the design for the front of the tin, I then decided it really needed something inside, so duplicated the same design for the inside too.

Yeah only 2 days to the weekend!


  1. OH WOW, WOW Woozer! I just love what you have done with your tin Alison, it's nothing short of amazing! Blown me away. Thanks so much for playing along and joining us at Magnolia Down Under Challenges. Hope to see you back again next challenge. xx
