Magnolia Down Under Challenge's 2nd Birthday Bash!

If you are looking for my TPS Blog Hop post please scroll down - it's right below this post! 


WOW - it's been two years since Kellie asked Kristy and I if we would be interested in starting the Magnolia Down Under Challenges - and what a long way we've come - and soo have Tilda and Edwin! Magnolia stamps are now well known with lots of fans around the world - and we've been happy to have been a small part of the fun along the way.

To celebrate our second birthday we are combining our challenge with a blog hop - and lots of fun prizes too. We have four FABULOUS sponsors....

Tickled Pink Stamps
All That Scraps
Michelle’s Scrapbooking
Quixotic Paperie

Prizes from the sponsors will be given to random entries AND the winner of the week - so what's the challenge theme???

TWO – two images, two DP, two flowers, two buttons, any of these or any other item in groups of two or combo.

Many of the DT also have some 2nd birthday blog candy for one of their commenters to win - all winners will be announced after the close of entries at 8am AEST, Saturday 19th March on the MDUC blog. I have this little prize parcel for one lucky crafter...

In it you'll find 2 Magnolia stamps, 2 bunches flowers and 2 metres of lace daisies.
You should have hopped here from the uber talented Camilla's blog but if you didn't head back to the MDUC blog where all the fun begins.

For my project I've decorated a 6"x6" chipboard album. It grabbed my attention for this challenge because it has 2 binding springs - a fabulous way to start my "2" project! I also have used two of each of these - DPs, tassles, images, Magnolia doohickey dies. My DPs are from my Basic Grey Sultry pad. In place of the stamped bubbles I trimmed off I've added some lime green gems.

Now you need to hop on over to see what amazing creation the lovely Debbie Dolphin has for you.

Here's the blog hop order for you - the DT's links are on my left sidebar under the MDUC logo, the guests have their names linked for you......

MDUC Blog, Ann, Camilla, Debbie P{me}, Debbie D, Denise, Fran, Jane, Janiel, GUEST – Jodie, Karen, Kathrin, Kristy, Kylie, Sharon, GUEST – Stephanne, Tanja, Tara and then back to the MDUC blog

I'm entering this into these challenges -
Basic Grey - Wings
