This week on Cupcake Craft  Faye as chosen the theme recycled  (use something recycled on your project)
I have used this box that I rescued out of the recycling bin, my family wondered what I was doing when I was trying to think what I could do and was rummaging around the recycling bin I am pretty sure they think I am nuts lol.

I have used this cute Tilda stamp that is from the latest magnolia collection and used copics to colour with and added a little sparkle with stickles.
This week we have two sponsors and they are-
Creations by AR and the prize is two templates from the shop
Bugaboo stamps - 7 digital images

Thanks for looking and happy crafting
Louise xx

Oh WOW! This is just so awesome! This is one of the very few Magnolia's that I do not own as I did not like her much but this is the first time I've seen her in a creation which I LURVE, so have now added her to my list. Love how you have made the flower pop with the glitter, I think that makes a difference and I love the purple & green combo. Gorgeous creative use of a laughing cow box! keeelyxx
