I'm a Guest at TOMIC Challenge #13 WHOOHOOOOOO

*** Please Enter my Candy by clicking on the top photo in my side bar***

I'm so super excited!!!! This week I have been lucky to get to play along with the Official Magnolia Design Team at the TOMIC Challenge, yep that's right, I made Top 5 and was chosen to guest the other week!! I'm still gobsmacked about that!

This week at TOMIC the challenge is "Back to School with Metal" I guess there is a lot of excited kids around in the Northern Hemisphere getting ready to go back, or maybe if they are older... dreading. LOL!!

Here is my card, I have used Chess Tilda from the "Winner takes it All" collection.  I think she is so cute and I have teamed her with a School Desk, from the "So Heavenly, Travel and School" Collection:-)
