I cannot believe we are already in July; where does the time go to. Really sorry I have been so remiss at blogging - there has been an awful lot going on at home over the past few weeks that my crafting has definitely taken a back seat :(.
Anyway, onwards and upwards and I am really excited to tell you about a new monthly challenge we will be having. At the beginning of each month we will give a theme and you can create a layout, card or off-the-page item that fits in with the theme and submit it by clicking on the inlinkz icon at the bottom of the blog post. We will randomly choose the winner and you can enter up to three times as long as they are different creations. The winner will win a £20 Bellaboo e-voucher, so definitely worth entering :). All that we ask is that one of the main products you use on your creation is a Bellaboo product ie a stamp, patterned paper, one of our kits, a mask etc and mention this on your Blog post with a link. If you don't have a blog you can still enter, just send me an email with a photo of your creation.
The July Challenge is....

Nicky has used the 'Park Drive' Monthly Kit to create this beautiful box and the Wild Meadow Stamp Set on the sides and tag. The box will have cards in and makes a beautiful gift.
