The theme for August is....

DIE CUTS & FLOWERS!

Right just so everyone understands the rules.....flowery papers on there own with just ordinary die cuts won't be in the draw or Top 3, but if you add a bloom or a die cut flower you will be added. To be clear you need a dimensional flower on your creation this month, if its a die cut that's great, but if its a bloom you will need to add a die cut....I really hope that doesn't sound patronising....if it does I'm sorry I don't mean to be xx
