Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Thank you for joining us for the Explore The World Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is

Treat Bag/Box

With Halloween and Christmas fast approaching most of us need to make a few gift/treat bags or boxes! You could also choose to make a project featuring some sort of container.  We will be looking forward to seeing what you decide to create!

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store
