It's Mini Monday

Good Morning, Friends. I hope all you lovely moms out in blogland had a great Mother’s Day. My DH and I celebrated with a little shopping (for me) and grilling out on Saturday evening with my daughter, son-in-law and grandson. The weather here has finally turned to spring and we’ve had nice warm temps and a little rain which our garden is in sorely need.
 
My Mini Monday DT sisters, Suzanne and Ruby have been busy creating some fun projects and cards to inspire you. We love our Mini Magnolias.
 
 
My daughter, Abi, has a birthday coming up in June and I thought this would be a great time to create the packaging for her gift. It is a small round box I cut from a Silhouette Cameo file using designer papers from Pink Paislee. The contents are a secret though...however I am making something special for her and this box is the perfect size.
 
 
I used the sweet “Mini Happy Princess Tilda” from the Once upon a Time collection for the gift tag. Tilda was colored with Copics and I die cut her from a new Spellbinders frame called Adorning Squares. Then I embossed the outer edge of the frame with Vintage Teal Fran-tage.
 
 
I added ribbon roses and pearls to the box with a pretty flower from Webster’s Pages to finish it off.
 
Don’t forget to leave a comment on the Challenge Blog or the DT blogs for a chance to win a prize from Magnolia-licious & Wee Stamps.
 
 
I’ll see you back here tomorrow for our new challenge for Magnolia-licious. Thanks for visiting and have a great week.
 
Hugz,
