Inventory challenge #12

Happy New Years Eve everyone be safe whatever you are doing !  I think I will just be staying home or going over to my son's playing Wii !  This past year has been a pretty good year for us we had a few challenges but what family doesn't.  I have had a great time with all my blogging buddies and I have learned so much from you all thanks for all the inspiration.

Christina, Danielle and I are still using up our inventory nothing new for us till summer..Be sure to stop by their blogs to see the beautiful creations they are come up with. I am so glad this does not include copics or refills and I need to place an order real soon. 

My project I am sharing today was a gift for a friend...it is an altered journal from the $1.00 bin at Michaels that I have had in my closet for a few years :) I have one that a friend made for me and it is something I use daily.  On the front of the book I have used 2 maggie stamps the open gate and Tilda holding a broom and I just cut the broom off.  The border of the page is graphics from Laurie Furnell, I have added stickles for some pop.

The inside cover is  graphics, and on the divider page I have used Longing Tilda.

The next page is with Tilda with 3 tulips I think, and then I used this funny lady from a senior graphic for the back cover.  My friend who I made this for I met on another board where all we used were graphics and we have stayed in touch so I combined the old and the new ! 

 All of my images are colored with copics.  You can purchase all you Tildas from Magnolia-licous and don't forget now you can get the minis Tildas which are so much fun !

Challenges:
Just Magnolia - anything goes
Totally Gorjuss - for someone special

Thats it for me today hope you find some time to get creative.
Hugs♥

I love your inventory challenge idea...wish I could be so disciplined. Hey there...did you know you can avoid buying new Copics and just have them refilled? My Favorite Things refills them for a nominal fee. I came across it today and thought it was a great idea. Happy New Year!!

Sharron aka Sharrahug said...

Love it, Sis! And I know that "special someone" loves it too (& no.....it's not me.....LOL). It's just darling! Every page is a treasure!

You have been such an inspiration to me & I'm so glad the Lord put us together in this crazy life.

Love you bunches & bunches ~
