You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:

Tammy Louise (Guest Designer)
Using Shape EZ Nutty Card
My favourite holiday is Halloween in October, because both of my children are October babies, and it brings back wonderful memories.

using Shape EZ Snowflake Card Template
Favourite Occasion & Why :
I know it's only July, but my favourite occasion is Christmas because I love snowflakes and sparkle, and it's the only time of year I can combine the two!

Favourite Occasion & Why :
I think I have to say my favorite occasion is Birthday
as its the occasion I make the most cards for! thehehheee!
this card is from my Son to my Mum.

My favourite occasion card has to be a new home card. An exciting time for anyone and  especially when your own brood finally settle down. Made this for one of my Sons and I so look forward to the day when I can make the long journey to the other side of the world to visit him. 

using Shape EZ Deisgner Purse
Favourite Occasion & Why :
My favourite occasion are birthdays and I just love 3D projects so this little purse is just a right thing to give away for a birthday present.

using Shape EZ Roll Bag
Favourite Occasion & Why :
 I think it's a lovely and unexpected gesture to let people know you care with a
 " Just Because" card or, in this case, a gift in a hand made bag.

using Shape EZ Take Out Box
Favourite Occasion & Why :
 I love gift box and bags and my favourite occasion is Christmas, a very special time of the year, also the last season of the year.

So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and 
showcase your Favourite Special Occasion, but don't forget
to tell us why it's your favourite occasion.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.
