Magnolia-licious Highlites April blog hop....

HELLOoooo ALL OF MY BLOGGIN' BUDDIES!!!
HAPPY MONDAY TO YOU!!!
 
WELCOME to the Magnolia-licious Highlites April Blog Hop!!
If you have hopped here from Suzanne's blog. You are right on track.
If not you may want to jump over to the start.
If you click HERE it will take you to the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog.

The Challenge this month is..
Lots of Luscious Lace
(Use lace elements on your projects: paper lace, fabric lace, lace embellies, lace flowers)

My photos today are AWEFUL!!!! I can't get this to photograph good NO matter what I do. The images are very soft and mix well with the album. But in the photos the flesh is so bright for some reason!! :o(   It is truly very stunning in real life!  I just hate it when this happens!!
I have made a wedding guest book/scrapbook for my project today. 
I have used different types of lace, tulle, prima flowers, gold skeleton leaves, feathers and pearls to make handmade flowers embellies for my project.
I have used 2 images and 2 Doohickey Dies.
 #154 Lucky Edwin,  as the groom
Images and dies shown can be bought at The Magnolia-licious store.
 The Magnolia-licious store has lot of things for your stamping needs but most of all a giant inventory of Regular size Magnolia Rubber Stamps and the home of the Mini Magnolia Stamps. Diana always has fast and friendly service!!

 Album is by K & Co.
Papers: The Paper Studio
Images have been colored with my copic markers and Stickles have been added to her dress, crown and veil.
 I found the coolest pearls in the Wedding section that I have put around the images. They are self adhesive from His & Hers. I just love that double strip.  Large pearls on upper right of album are from my stash.


In the photo above I hope you can see the different levels on the little book. In the pictures it is hard to see the beautiful tulle bow in the top left of the frame. But it is there and it helps to put my little book into balance without over powering my images or flowers.

I truly did have a fun time making all of the lace flowers and putting this little book together. On the inside I have 4 pages that I have made for the Wedding guests to sign. Then later after the wedding (in June) I hope to get this back from the bride and groom and do a few scrapbook type pages of the wedding. To fill up the album of their day to remember. So if and when that happens I will post the pages in complete form. I really do have some very cool creative ideas going on im my head for the pages.. tee hee heeeee

Challenges I will be entering my project:

 Totally Gorjuss - #127 Bling
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards -  Pearls & Lace
 Ditzy Craftymess:  Anything but a Card
Just Magnolia - Lovely Lace
Lily Pad - Flower Challenge 
 Stampin With The Dragon - Weddings
2 Sisters - #87 Flowers
Sugar Creek Hollow - Die Cuts or Punches  (Vintage, Shabby Chic or Primitive)

I will draw the winner next Monday April 23, 2012 and post on my blog.
