Happy 2nd Birthday Magnolia-licious!!!
Wow! Today I’m so excited to participate for the first time in the Magnolia-licious monthly blog hop and challenge as guest designer! This month it is a fun explosion box with a Birthday or Anniversary theme to celebrate two years for the Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group! If you have come from Suzanne’s magnificent blog, you are on the right path.
If you just happened to stop by my blog, you can always hop on over to a blog created just for the Birthday Bash Celebration or the Magnolia-licious Highlites blog to see how all this works and start from the beginning.
This is such a fun project! I like to keep the outside of the box rather simple, so it is a nice surprise when the box is opened. Love the "floaty" things!!!

You can find a huge selection of these wonderful Magnolia stamps here at Diana’s store! Not only can you order these terrific stamps and other Magnolia things, you are working with a fantastic person! Always helpful and so generous!!!

Would anyone like a free Maggie stamp??? How about Longing Tilda! She is such a cutie!!! She is another one like Tilda on Elbows that so cleverly puts her hand at her chin. Anyone have an idea why she might be doing that? Marion knows!!! Just leave a comment and I'll do a random drawing on May 22nd at midnight CDT. Would love to have you sign up as a follower if you haven't already.
Now you’ll want to hop on over to visit the very sweet and oh so talented Barb to see what wonderful creation she has made to share!
There will be lots of challenges, projects and prizes to come for the next 8 weeks. Hope you'll join us for the fun!!!
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop!!!
