Magnolia-licious DT Blog Hop
Hi Everyone!!!! I so hope you're having a terrific day! The Magnolia-licious DT has got a FANTASTIC show for you today. We've got the most wonderful blog hop for you to follow and you can get the details at the Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge Blog. If you've come to my blog from Janiel's fab works, then you're on the right track. If not, then make your way over the Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge Blog to start from the beginning. I'm certain you're going to be filled with a year's worth of inspiration when you see what we've all created.
As you may already know, Christmas has just passed. The girls on the DT wanted to make extra special Christmas gift for the best boss in the world, Diana Crick. We all absolutely adore her and thought it would be great to make something for her that would give her an entire year of joy. The idea of the calendar was born. We're here today to share it with you.
I made two pages for the calendar. One for March and one for December. Both chilly, winter months here in Michgan...so I went with that. You'll see no sunshine on my pages, but hopefully they'll be cool and fun.
March - In like a lion...out like a lamb
When you're a kid, what is more fun on a snowy winter day than sledding down a hill at super speed? Nothing my friend! For that reason, I chose #147 Edwin on Sled for this page. He's just zippin' down the hill as fast as he can and having a blast! I colored him with a combo of Copic markers and watercolor with DI's, as usual. I don't remember all of the details about the dp's and embellies, but I do know that the large snowflake was once a tree ornament and the sentiment was laser printed by me. The rest will have to remain a mystery because I put all of my Christmas stuff away and I didn't keep track of the markers and inks that I used. Sorry!
Christmas Eve in Paris
Looks like we got a shot of Santa taking a moments break on Christmas Eve in Paris! Wouldn't it be a dream to be in Paris on Christmas Eve??? Well, for those of use that don't live there anyway :-) This is #127 Cool Santa, paired with #542 Eiffel Tower and the lamp post from Magnolia's #5 Paris Night DooHickey Die. The dp's are BG "Jovial". I remember that because they were my favorite dp's for the holiday season. For that reason, I wanted to use them for Diana's calendar page. Only the best for Diana! The images were colored with Copic markers and watercolor with DI's...no details...sorry! I know I used stardust Stickles all over the place to make it look like it's snowing.
Well, that's it for today! I truly hope you had a good time viewing my project. The next stop on the hop is Suzanne and she has a page that is absolutely stunning! Have fun!
