Fall, Paper Bag Recipe Holder!

This week has been so hot where I live in Southern California, it wasn't this hot all Summer long! I'm so ready for fall. It's my favorite time of year. The clean fresh breeze with a chill in the air, wearing warm clothes, making stews and roasts, all of the colors, and the anticipation of the Holidays! I cant wait to wear layers of clothes LOL!

I made a fun project for a few reasons, first is it's the first and over at Magnolia-licious my friend and fellow DT member Angie is our hostess and she has a wonderful challenge, to use a paper bag in your project! I've turned mine into a recipe holder, for fall recipes. When you pull out the tab theres a pocket for recipe cards or notes ect. Then for Just Magnolia our theme is Anything Goes. Those challenges are always fun.

I just love the new Fall Collection of Magnolias. Isn't this Tilda rolling in leaves the cutest! Sorry if you are tired of seeing this Tilda Lace border die but it's my favorite ever! I cannot even begin explain how I love the fact Magnolia makes dies!!! My poor neglected punches! LOL.

I hope you all have a great weekend. I hope to get a card on here sometime this weekend, just to make a non-dt card, which I haven't done in forever. But I will be back Monday with a new card for the Wild Orchid Craft Challenge!
