Magnolia-licious DT May Birthday Fun Blog Hop

Good morning my dears,  Welcome to our Design Teams
May Inspirational Blog Hop and Challenge over at


If you've come here from The Magnolia-licious Blog Hop post then you have started hopping.   I am first on the Hop List but if you get lost along the way then go back to Magnolia-licious where you will find the complete list and you won't miss out on any of the Design Teams FABULOUS creations.

Our Theme for this Hop is "Birthday Fun" if you have followed one of our Hops before you will know that we as a Design Team create something other than a card to enthuse and encourage you to join in on the Challenge.

I chose to alter 3 cute wooden suitcases and used a Mini Tilda to add a miniature easel card on top of the smallest suitcases. 

I white washed all the suitcases with diluted Gesso and then distressed all the the edges with TH brushed Corduroy ink before gluing  the base of the middle case to the lid of the larger case and the base of the small suitcase to the lid of the middle.  I wanted them to open up so I could add little gifts inside.

Here are some pics to explain (hopefully) what I mean. lol



The picture above shows the suitcases closed 


The picture above shows the lids attached to the smaller suitcases




The only lid that is separate is the small suitcase one. 



Thank you so much for popping in to visit, I hope you will have a fabulous hop and pick up ideas and motivation along the way.




In order to be included in the prize draws these are the requirements to be followed:

1. Like us on our Magnolia-licious Facebook Fan Page

2. Leave a comment on each DT's post during the hop

3. At the end of your Hop return to the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and leave a comment there as well for a chance to win a prize.

There are two ways to win during our Challenge Blog Hop.

1. Comments are counted and a random winner is chosen

2. Enter a project following the Hop theme and a random winner will be chosen. This person will receive a handmade card from one of the Magnolia-licious Designers. 


The next stage in your hop will take you to 
my friend and super talented Norma-Lee  

Happy Hopping
