January Challenge for Crafty Gals




Good Monday Morning Friends!
My post for today is for my January Crafty Gals Challenge to make something with *New* as our theme.  Well, the stamps & accessories may not be new but I did make this birthday package for a new friend!  I do believe that qualifies for this month's challenge & I really needed to make Tayla something cute!!!  She goes to school with my daughter Bianca & she's also new here from South Africa.  Her fave colors are anything bright & neon so that is why I went out of my comfort zone just a bit to make part of her gift.  BTW, in case you're wondering; she absolutely LOVED this which made me really happy & I now have some new stamping buddies!!!!!

Please check out the rest of the group to see what beauties they came up with:
Lela
Melina

Carolina

Heather
Tracie
Diane

I am off to work on the rest of my class cards now.  Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great rest of the day!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,
