Magnolia-licious Holiday Blog Hop Wants YOU!


Hello to all of Santa's helpers!

Well, the countdown is beginning, huh? Once Thanksgiving has come and gone, look out! Let the madness begin! However, to give you some gentle inspiration, the Magnolia-licious/Score Pal Design Teams have joined forces to present our

HOLIDAY BLOG HOP!


If you have arrived here from Jane Johnson's Blog, then you are in the right place! If not, then you need to start at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog - HERE. This is where you will find all the details for how to unscramble the secret message that will get one lucky gal a wonderful prize, valued at $50, from Diana, the gal behind Magnolia-licious! Here are the directions for the hop -

• Hop through the blogs in the order they are listed on the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.
• Gather the letters or clues found on each blog.
• Rearrange the alphas and use the clues to discover the secret message. • Do NOT publicly post your answer on the Challenge Blog or any of the DT members' Blogs. You will see where to send your responses as noted on the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog's Blog Hop Information page.

But wait! There's more!

There will also be two other lucky winners - making a total of three winners. Who will be the other lucky two winners? Well, that is entirely up to you! In order to be in the running for one of the other two prizes, you must enter a Winter/Holiday themed project on the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. You have until December 31 to enter your project. The First Place Winner will win a huge gift from Diana valued at $100 while a runner up winner will receive a special gift valued at $50. I think Diana is secretly Mrs. Claus! Shhhh! Don't tell!

I have a wonderful holiday banner to share with you! There are lots of photos, so that you can see the details. The banner has tulle, feathers, ribbon, jingle bells, glittered alphas, adorable hand painted images from the new Winter Wonderland Collection, glitter, Snow-Tex, gorgeous papers, sturdy backing, and pretty ribbon. **This banner is for sale. If you are interested, please contact me via the e-mail address on the right!



Here are close ups for each panel:













I hope you like this gorgeous banner! Now, you are off through cyberspace to see what Suzi McManus has created on her blog. It's gorgeous, so you don't want to skip it!

Thank you so much for stopping hopping by! Good luck unscrambling the letters and using the clues for the Blog Hop! Then, a special good luck creating a holiday/winter themed project for the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog!
