Magical Monday - Box/Bag/Container

The special person to receive the random drawing prize for participating in last weeks challenge is: #17 Mary Anne K.

Please send me your e-mail address at magicintheair@att.net so I can get this out to you. CONGRATS and ENJOY!

This week I bring you this cute little giraffe that has love on his mind! Love for what, well, I am not sure, maybe his girl or maybe even chocolate! Well, whatever it is I am sure he will be super cute on all your projects! Also, I am now placing a watermarked image on my site, because other sites are pulling my image and I want to make sure they are safe with a watermark. They are still a free down load and there will be a link just below the watermarked image that will take you to 4-share where you will click the green download icon and download from there. If anyone has a problem just email me, but all you do is click the link below, and then once you arrive to the download page, click their green icon that says download and pick your file to place the download in. Really it is that easy for those who this might be new to.

(C) "Think Love"

"Think Love" is no longer available for free... if by chance you missed this freebie, you can now find this image in my store Paper Cupcakes)

This week's challenge is brought to you by Kim McDonald. She wants you to use our image "Think Love" and create some kind of treat box/bag/Container/holder; something you would place candy or a treat in. Sounds like fun!! I also found this site Mirkwood Designs for free templates so you might want to check it out if you need some help with this. Also, make sure you are following all aspects of our challenge to be eligible for the weekly random give-a-way.

The prize for this week’s random drawing for whoever participates in this weeks challenge and links their work back will be a trip to my store Paper Cupcakes where you get to personally pick one image you would like to have!

(ALSO, make sure you check out the Designers personal blogs, a lot of them will have more then one picture to view of their project this week. Some have more then one project to show as well. Patti even made a cute little book with 3 of the images. Plus, some of the blogs have some new images out of my store on some wonderful projects as well. So go check them all out, it is certainly worth the visit!)

Unfortunately this is part of the e-mail I received from Lisa just days ago:

"My computer has crashed...it got that Malware defender virus and won't even boot now."

Can you say (((OH NO!)) Poor Lisa, I know we can all relate to not wanting something like that. So Lisa will not be able to present us with another awesome project this week. BIG Thanks Lisa for being such a great inspiration to us this month as our Guest Designer and sharing your talents. Make sure you continue to check out our GD blogs once their time has lapsed. You can find all the links to their blogs on the side bar there.

OK.. my color is REALLY off on this bag (photography wise), but oh well... what's a girl to do!?!

So, as you go through your day today "Think Love"! How wonderful the world would be if we all walked around with love on our minds and in our hearts daily! We can't wait to see what you surprise us with this week!!

Thankyou for the cute design. How sad that you must watermark to protect your images! Thankyou for continuing to be so generous in sharing even though you have had this experience

Shelly said...

Thank you for the darling image, Nina. I am enjoying time with my mom, so don't know if I will get to do the challenge this week. But I will for sure use this image when I scrap the pages of the beautiful giraffe I saw at the zoo recently. I'll send you a link when I do.
