vacation snapshots

Firstly, I would just like to say a very BIG thank you, to all of you who visited my blog (and continue to do so) during the Duda Daze blog hop and took the time and trouble to leave me a comment. I very much appreciate each and every one of them. I am still in the process of returning the compliment and visiting your blogs, so if I haven't done so already, then I will visit in the next day or two. In the meantime, if you missed out on the hop you can follow it by checking out my posting below this one. I'm sure you will all agree that it was a really fun and enjoyable hop ~ there is so much awesome talent out there and I really enjoyed visiting you all.
On to today's posting where I am entering FIVE challenges.

I have used this week's sketch over at Sketch Saturday.

Both the ABC Challenge and Just Magnolia Challenge have a theme of 'Summer'.

The challenge at Cute Card Thursday is to 'use a tag on your creation'.
Finally, the challenge at Lots to Do is 'to incorporate a piece of haberdashery' ~ I have used ribbon.

Here is my interpretation:

All patterned papers are from the S.E.I. ~ Dill Blossom collection and I used Coriander, Saffron and Marjoram.

The 'Snapshots' chipboard word is from the We R Memory Keepers ~ Hoopla collection. The 'vacation' tag is from Making Memories.
The image used is Magnolia ~ Khaki Tilda from the new Pets and Animals collection. As usual, I coloured her with my copics.
I created a little branch for her to sit on, which was cut from one of the S.E.I. papers. The bird is a rub-on from October Afternoon.
Photo anchors are by Papermania and brads are by Basic Grey.
For the scalloped edges I used an olive green velvet ribbon from Cosmo Cricket.
Thank you for looking.
