Magnolia-licious DT - Summer fun Blog Hop

Good morning my dears,  Welcome to our 
Summer Inspirational Blog Hop and Challenge over at

M a g n o l i a - l i c i o u s

If you've come here from the lovely  Karen S then you are on the right track.  If you've gotten lost along the way then do go back to Magnolia-licious where you will find the complete list  to follow and you won't miss out on any of the 
Design Teams FABULOUS creations.

Our Theme for this Hop is "Summer 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.

For my project I chose to make a summer memory journal and decorating  it using some unusual products.  My frame is made using paper straws and my cute banner is made using cupcake flags.   I found  both of these in my 
local Home Bargains store. 

I've used Summer Tilda with flags from the 
2014 Pink Lemonade collection
which is available over at Magnolia-licious store 

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.
