Now I have been keeping a secret since the end of last month and today I am going to share with you...

I have been asked by Diana Crick to be a guest designer for Magnolia-licious for serval months!!!!!! I am so excited, honored and a tad bit nervous all at the same time The designers over there are so creative!!!
If you have not been to the blog to do the Monthly Challenges then you need to stop by the Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge blog and join the fun!!!

Okay now let's see what I have came up with for this hop. But first of all I must say that my photo's do not do the project justice.

Week 1 Explosion Box...........

I have posted a zillion photos for your viewing as it was so hard to do photos for this and be able to see all of the details...


My box is a 4x4

Look at this beautiful butterfly that I have put on the top of my little box.
Okay are you ready??? We are going to open it up and have a look!!!

Close up of FLYING TILDA and LONGING TILDA both from the *NEW*
FAIRYTALE COLLECTION.


I have all of the flowers around Tilda popped up with wire.
Don't she look like she is dancing in the flowers?

I have hand painted all of the little white dots on the word *FAIRY* with acrylic paint. Just for a little bit more detail.




Now I have took my box. I have folded it the other way to make it stand up.
