A Magnolia-licious Challenge for September!


Hi! There was no time (and no card!!) to post yesterday, but I DO have my September project ready for today! Yeah!!
Queen Diana challenged us to make this really cool file folder project! I won't go into too much detail because I am sure you have seen the wonderful projects already made by our DT! If not, here is the link to the challenge blog:
And here is the link to the DIRECTIONS
for making it! You will want to try it because you can win $25.00 from Diana's store!!
Speaking of her store the Tilda I used is Stylish Tilda. She is an "older" Tilda now, but I just love her. She does have wings, but I cut them off for this project. I don't see her in Diana's store just now but when I looked I saw about 30 others that would work perfectly! Wouldn't sunflower Tilda have been great?! Hmmmm....
STORY
Diana was once told (by the people in Sweden) that ALL the Tildas are angels, but sometimes you cannot see their wings! AND, they added, the reason there is no mouth is because angels speak with their hearts! Can I hear an AWWWWwwww!
I have never been bothered by them only having eyes for their features. Have you?

My paper is Bloom from My Mind's Eye. I had mine made and ripped it apart after going to a stationary store and buying cream colored envelopes. It just looks better to me! The brown closure looked too plain when I was finished so I stamped it in vintage cream ink with a stamp from SUs Carte Postale! Aren't we forever changing (and improving) our projects!
Okay, lots to do today! I hope to get a post ready for tomorrow and it is another beautiful day for cleaning and sorting! Wishing YOU a productive day and I thank you again for visiting me here.
Cheryl

Such a beautiful project. I love it!
I am so glad to have learned why the Tildas did not have mouths. It never bothered me, but I have a few friends that always asked. So I love that little tidbit!
