Magnolia-licious - Let's spring into a blog hop!!

Hi everyone and happy Monday!! Is that a conundrum????  ;) It's the third Monday in the month, so that means it's time for the Magnolia-licious Design Team to have our monthly blog hop!! This month, our theme is "Spring is right around the corner".  Now if you've arrived here from seeing my awesomely talented design team sister Barb, then you're on the right track! If not, you'll want to start from the beginning at the Magnolia-licious Hightlites Blog.  You don't want to miss a single thing!!  Here's what I came up with for you today


I chose to use #225 Tilda with Daisy from the 2012 Sweet Crazy Love Collection. I don't see the full size in stock right now, but the mini is available! I also used #505 Stone Pathway for my background. Both images were stamped with Memento ink onto Cryogen White paper and colored with a mixture of ProMarkers and Copics. Don't forget that Diana carries a HUGE selection of Magnolia images for you to choose from, and is the North American Distributor for the Mini Magnolias as well!! Her customer service and prices are the BEST! So be sure and visit Magnolia-licious for ALL your Magnolia needs! And don't forget to check out her amazing selection of fabulous dies while you're there! You'll find not only Magnolia Doohickey dies, but also Memory Box, Cheery Lynn, Marianne, and Poppystamps too!!


That yummy paper is Pion from my friend Christina, and it's matted with Bazzill cardstock. Thank you Christina! I've been saving it for something special and FINALLY got up enough nerve to actually use some of it. LOL! I do love hoarding beautiful paper!!  I used some lace from my stash, and gathered it up down the side of the vertical layer of paper. It's held there by simply using Scor Tape. If you haven't tried Scor Tape yet, you are missing out! It's amazing! The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the bow is made from May Arts silk ribbon  Added some machine stitching and called her done!



I've got some fun calorie free candy for a person that leaves a comment on my this post before 11:59 PM Sunday night, Feb 26th. Now it's time for you to head over to see the extraordinarily talented Angie! Thanks so much for hopping along with us today, and I hope you play along for a chance to win an awesome prize from the FANTABULOUS Diana at Magnolia-licious!!! Have a wonderful week! Hugs!
