Magnolia-Licious Holiday Blog Hop

 Hello everyone..

Today is the BIG Magnolia-Licous Blog Hop!!

I am sure the if you have hopped here from Lisa Andrews blog you have seen all kinds of fun, beautiful and inspiring projects along the way.
If you have happened on my blog without following the hop you might want to go to the Magnolia-Licious blog to start.  I am more than sure you will not want to miss anything!!

Remember there are 2 ways to win great prizes!! Information at the end of my post and also on the Magnolia-Licious Challenge blog .

I tell ya I had so much fun making this project!!

I have made a few of these in the past and they are always so fun to do and  display during the holidays.

I have made this one with a very special someone in mind. So it will be going in the mail very soon. So that they can enjoy it during the holiday season.

This was a very hard project to do photos of because of the glare on the glass. It looks so much better in person!

What do ya think??

( I would love for you to take a minute and leave me your thoughts)
 11 inches tall and 8 inches wide. 
Yes, you can really shake it like a small snowglobe and the fake snow will go all over insidethe glass just like it is snowing!


 I have used 4 very fun Magnolia images for my project today.
I have colored my images with my copic markers.

NOW DON'T FORGET all images can be purchased at
