Happy Birthday Magnolia-licious !
Hi and thanks for coming by today, TGIF are you ready for the weekend? I am working this weekend so no big plans happening here :) Magnolia-licious is celebrating its 2nd birthday so they have lots of fun planned so for this week they wanted an explosion box. I was going to enter this in the little contest on the birthday blog as it said "have it posted by Friday the 21st" but is seems the link is gone ummmmmm wonder what is up there...oh well we will see what the powers to be do ! Oh goodie see how sweet the powers to be are they fixed the link ! Love ya oodles MOD SQUAD :)
I had so much fun putting mine together as it is for a very special little Princess in my life......my youngest DGD who will be 5 the first week of June and this will fit right in to the new decor of her princess room ! I have used the castle stone window with Longing Tilda on one side, you can get these from Diana here on the other side I used Prince Phillip the frog and then I used the crown and put it on him so it looked like as he shrunk to frog status his crown stayed prince size.
I added some liquid embossing to his eyes for depth and also the crown rest on them. I decided to keep the outside of the box pretty simple as it will be shown open on her shelf. I am not sure what I am going to put on the lid so I will finish that later this week LOL !
On the inside I have used Princess Tilda (thanks Lorianna) I just love her I think she is my all time favorite Tilda, I have used the mini fairy Tilda and the butterfly from the Fairytale collection. I used little acetate arches to make them airborne.
The DP is Amplified jukebox collection. The little flowers are from the wedding section of Hobby Lobby, the doilies from a dollar bin somewhere, and the greenery are MS branch punch. The border on the box lid is cut on my wishblade, it kinda reminded me of a crown then I ran it through the cuttle bug for some texture and put a light coat of lavender chalk on it. The birthday sentiment is from the dollar bin at Michaels. All the images are colored with copics.
By the cute and girly - Celebrations
Sweet Stampin challenge - something for someone special
