Time for a Magnolia blog hop featuring Tilda's family

Hey everyone! Hope you enjoyed your weekend! Mine went way too fast and I'm ready for another one already. How can two days pass by sooo quickly??!!  Anyway, it's the third Monday in the month, and that means it's BLOG HOP time for the Magnolia-licious Design Team!! This months theme is "Lots of Lucious Lace!" Well, I love lace, and I pretty much took it overboard with this challenge. LOL!  If you've arrived here from my visiting my talented friend and design team sister, Cabio, then you're on the right track. If not, you might want to visit Magnolia-licious Highlites to start at the beginning.  So this is what I've come up with you for today


I chose to use #251 Tilda's Family, which is stamped with Memento ink onto Cryogen White paper and colored with Copic markers. This image is from the Princes and Princesses Collection available at Magnolia-licious. They are then fussy cut out and the popped up from a circle frame cut with Nestabilities. The DP's are MME matted with Bazzill cardstock. I added lace around circle frame, and also used some to make a flower (although I'm not really sure I like the way it turned out).  I made some paper lace using #23 Magnolia Doohickey Antique Lace die (down the left side), and then topped it off by using the lacey Memory Box Butterflie dies, #70 Darla, and #71 Vivienne. That's right! You can not only find the largest selection of Magnolia stamps at the best price at Magnolia-licious, but you can also find an amazing array of fabulous dies as well!! Diana always offers the best prices with the best service!!!


All layers are machine stitched and several are popped up for dimension. I added a bow made with May Arts silk ribbon and the Bow Easy. Here's a nice close up of that gorgeous butterfly!


So that's it for me today. It's now time for you to move on to visit the fabulously talented Ruby! I know she's got something amazing for you to see! Thanks so much for hopping with us today, and hope you play along with us at Magnolia-licious Highlites for a chance to win an awesome prize from Diana!! Sending you wishes for a wonderful week! Hugs!

Very very pretty Sharon, I just love the lace a round your image, and the very pretty bow. You colored tilda/Edwin couple beautifully, I must admit I had a problem when this image came out: no mom image for Tilda. But there is so much sweetness and tenderness coming out of it, I do like it now. Love the wonderful paper, and the magnificient bow. Very pretty!
