Magnolia Mini World Album!

Hello my friends! I have a project to show you that took me forever to make! About 4 days. All the stamps you see here are in Magnolia's Sweet Rainbow Collection. The album spells mini, but with my little oval tags should read Magnolia Mini World. I was going to keep this a surprise but I cannot keep my big ole mouth shut. I've made this for a very dear friend, Diana Crick,  the owner of Magnolia-licious and wholesale distributor of the Magnolia Minis. If you will be going to CHA this little album will be on display there!
I hope you like it Diana!!

I've incorporated Just Magnolia into this project for this weeks challenge. Michelle chose the theme this week and it's Paper Piecing. I've paper pieced the Mini Scarecrow Tilda on the cover and also the Rocking Tilda on the last page. I never do this technique it's really fun and different. I hope you will join us over at Just Magnolia and hAngler this week!

I've also made this for Fussy and Fancy. Our theme is to CASE a DT member. So check out the lovely creations by the design team and let one of them inspire you to create! I hope you will join us over at Fussy and Fancy, too!

Thank you so much for those who have sign up for my Magnolia Copic Class at Color Me Creative. I've had such a great response and I've been chatting with some wonderful ladies! If you are interested in learning how to color with Copics, adding depth in your coloring and creating a scene I really think you would enjoy my class. You don't have to buy the stamps I've used, you can use what you have on hand.

As I started to read your blog, so looking forward to see what you had created and then to read you had made it for me, I truly had to wipe the tears from my eyes. You have no idea how you have touched my heart with your incredible thoughtfulness. I absolutely adore it, each page a masterpiece of its own. I can't wait to actually see it for real. Thank you so, so very much. Yes I am blown away!
with very much love,

Hi Mindy! I always drool over all of your cards, but this is outstanding! There are no words! All of the special detail from the perfectly colored and paper pieced little Tilda's to the butterflies, mushrooms, flowers and flowersoft! There is so much detail and each page is a treasure! Thank you so much for sharing this and I'm sure that Diane treasures your thoughtful friendship even more than this beautiful mini album.
