Magnolia-licious blog hop - Spring themed Mini challenge!!


Good morning, happy Monday, and welcome to the Magnolia-licious Design Team monthly blog hop for February!!  I'm the first stop along the hop this month, but be sure you visit the Magnolia-licious Highlites blog to see how you can participate in the challenge for a chance to win a magnificent prize from Diana and Magnolia-licious! All the hoppers will be listed there as well, so you can pop back there if you should get lost along the way. 
 This month we've got lots of "Mini" fun planned for you! The challenge is to use only Mini Magnolia stamps and make it spring themed! So I took that challenge and made a Mini Magnolia word book!  Now there are TONS of pictures to show, so I apologize for the length of this. But I'll make it worth your while to stay until the end by enticing you with a wee bit of calorie free candy!  Let me preface the pictures by telling you which images I used from Magnolia-licious:  Mini #268 Little Bunny Tilda, Mini #3027 Chicken Tilda, Mini #3028 Tilda with Three Flwers, Mini #452 Two Eggs, Mini #3047 So Spooky Tilda (with her broom cut off),  Mini #341 Tilda Blowing Hearts, Hippity Hoppity Easter mini sized images, #1 Vintage Tag Doohickey die, #18 Rose Leaf Doohicky die, and the Doohickey die flourish which I don't see in stock at the moment. Now here's lots of pics for which I'll be nice and quiet... (you can click on the pics for a nice close up, but please ignore all the mistakes!)


























All cardstock used is Bazzill, all DP are from Nitwit Collections,  images were colored with Copic sketch markers (sorry...didn't keep track). The word book was cut with my Pazzle Inspiration first in chipboard, then in the paper.  I used various Martha Stewart border punches throughout, as well as some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Prima. The glittered hearts I used are from Melissa Frances which I've had for about two years (I was so in love with them that I bought three sets of them LOL!)  Now it's time to head over to my fabulously talented design team sister, Barb! But before you go, if you leave a comment on this post before 11:59 Pacific, Feb 25th, you will have a chance to win #221 Ribbon Hair Tilda.


You can see her on a card right HERE. So please hop on over to Barb's blog and see what yummy creation she has to show you today. Thanks so much for hopping with us today, and can't wait to see what you come up with for the challenge! Have a great week! Hugs!!
