Just Magnolia Challenge # 27 Bright and Zingy!

How is everyone? I am counting the days (and counting my pennies lol!) until the Hobby and Craft Fair at the NEC next month. Are you going too? I had a little look online at train prices and jeez was I shocked at how much it'll cost me :o( Am trying to rope my mum and my crafting sis into coming too so that we can drive up and share the petrol money! ;o)
Right, ok onto the good stuff.. this my entry for the Just Magnolia Challenge #27 which has a 'bright and 'zingy' theme. Ok, so my little creation isn't quite 'zingy', but I found it really hard to get the balance right ie. not soo zingy that it would look tacky, but enough to look bright and cheerful. So I played safe and went for a red and yellow colour scheme giving me a excuse to use one of my sheets of Magnolia Paper from the 'A little Yummy for Your Tummy' Collection that Mr Postie kindly delivered (prior to striking) last week!

I kept getting shadows when taking my pics today so apologies. Here is a side view..

Papers ~ Red Plaid from the Magnolia 'A Little Yummy for your Tummy' Collection, Yellow gingham from stash
Image ~ Tilda with Blueberries by Magnolia / Sentiment ~ Everyday Greetings by Elzybells
Embellies ~ Roses from stash, Yellow flower (top right corner) by Prima, Ribbon from stash, Charm and jump rings from 'beads needs'  - a shop on ebay.
Tools~ White Gel Pen, Whispers Ink Pad, Stickles, Poly Chromo Pencils,

Ooh! I can hear fireworks outside! I love the smell of bonfires..mmm.. roll on Nov. 5th! lol
Right, I better press on with a couple of other projects I've to finish tonight..

Thanks for stopping by!
