M is for Magical over at ABC

Wowzers! Blogger has messed things up again. I had this post scheduled for this morning, happily went off to Thetford for the Sincerely Yours Papercraft Show and came home to find Blogger had completely ignored my simple request.
Anyway at last here is my creation for the latest fab challenge over at ABC. This time it was down to me to choose the theme so I decided on M is for Magical! So dust your wands off and get creating anything with a magical theme.

I just had to use the fabulous new wizard Tilda and created her very own Hogwarts castle with the equally gorgeous new Princess castle image from Magnolia. I just fancied decorating a bag this time so I added some bunting in true Griffindor colours and some great DP's from the Kanban Mechanica Steampunk range. The little gold edging stars are the trim from a ribbon I've had for ages and the rosette is a Tim Holtz die with an LOTV sentiment in the centre.
As always I coloured everything with my beloved Promarkers, but the stormy sky was created with chalks.

I really hope you enjoy this challenge so good luck and I look forward to seeing all of your entries.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Totally Gorjuss - #125 'Swirly Whirly'
Stampin for the Weekend - #6 'Anything Goes'
Simply Magnolia - Dies and Punches

Bye for now
