HAPPY BIRTHDAY....

To the BESTEST group on the web! It's our Magnolia-licious (Yahoo) group's 2nd birthday and we're celebrating!! Huge thanks to DEB for getting this off the ground 2 years ago and working with Diana to promote the sale of the images we all adore! To kick off the EIGHT WEEK celebration we are having a Blog Hop of EXPLODING card/boxes!
Fun, WOW! I get to be the start of the blog hop, but if you want to read any details you can also vist the special Birthday Blog! As I type this on Friday night I don't know the prize/prizes, but when has a prize ever been a bad prize? NEVER
Sp I used three Magnolia images-Tilda with bee, the log and the leaves (from the jungle release). I chose this image because I wanted a sitting image to sit in my 3" square box AND I wanted to use my Martha Stewart bee punch. (I didn't get the punch worked in!)

The blending on her shirt is better IRL-the camera didn't like my project tonight!
I used E000, E11 and R20 for skin.
BG10 and BG72 for her jeans.
R22, R24 and R29 for the red stripes and her socks
Y21, Y32, Y15 and Y18 for the yellow stripes
The log is Y32, E55, E25 and E29
The leaves are YG21, YG25 and YG17
I guess that's it!
Please travel to Cathia's Blog
to see what beauty she's come up with!
Have a great day! I'll be back with a post tomorrow!
Cheryl
