MAG Challenge #39 - TBBM (Pg. 89)

Woo Hoo... I'm so excited to be posting this week for the MAG Challenge. If you've never heard of MAG before, then trust me when I tell you that you MUST Check It Out! MAG - Challenge by the Page is an Awesome Blog that host challenges like no other blog out there. It definitely pushes your mind to be extra creative. I Love my Design Team, they are so talented and I get so much inspiration from everyone. This week at MAG the cart that was chosen was Tags, Bags, Boxes and More pg 89. When I saw this page, I can honestly say that nothing immediate popped in mind, but later on that day (more towards the evening...) it Hit ME! I knew what I wanted to do. I wanted to go a little beyond the obvious on the images of the page so I hope you like what I came up with. I really pulled out some stamping techniques on this one.
Oh, BTW... let me give you the cliff notes on what MAG Challenges are all about:
In MAG Challenges you cannot use any other Cricut cartridge or page from another cartridge, only the specified page.  However, you are free to use all the embellishments and treasures from your stash!!!
Go check out the rest of the Design Team and Get Out that TBBM cartridge and join us for the fun! There's sure to be some inspiration over there to get you going.

She has a Super Huge Heart for doing this. As long as I'm making cards I can't help but contribute to her calling as long as she willing to keep doing it. I also share the same last name as Miss Kate McRae so I knew I surely had to participate in this one and it won't be last either. I hope you'll be moved to participate too.
