Three elephants


August is breast cancer awareness month and at A Gem of a Challenge we have a four week challenge to use more pink than any other colour. I used one of the new adorable squares precoloured digi toppers. There are a whole range of these, some for men and some for Christmas too.

I love to use the offcuts of striped papers by reversing the stripes.  The flowers are from Hobbycraft and The Range, the butterfly is from Poundworld.

We are off to the Coast today where it should be cooler. The last two days and nights have been too hot for us.
