OMG... it's purple...

Lana at Crafting in Style gave me some Kaisercraft 'Lilac Avenue' papers and MDF frame to play with, and this is what I came up with:

Purple is NOT my most favourite of scrapping colours, but I'm pretty happy with the result!! The frame will be an end-of-year thank you gift for one of my daughter's teachers. I also followed a workshop tutorial by Leanne (fellow DT chickie at Scrap Pile) to make a matching gift bag, in monochromatic:

I'm entering the giftbag in these challenges:

# Design Dollies ~ Colour challenge ~ monochromatic purple
# Humble Pie ~ One key colour
# Allsorts ~ Week 29 ~ buttons
# Three Clovers ~ Challenge 42 ~ gifts

I used: Kaisercraft 'Lilac Avenue' paper and Kaisercraft stamp from the 'Flora and Fauna' set, Colorbox fluid chalk, grosgrain ribbons and buttons from my stash.
