Magnolia-licious Interactive Tag Challenge and Blog Hop Wants YOU!

Hello Dah-links!

Guess what? It's time for the...

Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog Hop!

If you have arrived here from Suzanne Dean's Blog , then you're right where you are supposed to be! Good work! If not, then you need to go back and start at the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog. This is where you find all of the details for winning those $50 store credit prizes that are up for grabs! One lucky winner will be for the Interactive Tag Challenge while another $50 winner will be for the correct total of candy canes hidden by the Design Team gals.

The theme for this challenge is to create an interactive tag.

Your tag needs to pop, flip, turn, slide, or whatever will involve some sort of physical interaction other than just viewing or reading the tag. There should be some sort of movement.

But wait - There's more!

We're also having a

Count the Hidden Candy Canes Blog Hop Contest!

So, if you want to join in the second half of our blog hop, here's what you need to do.

You need to look at the FIRST photo posted by each design team member. In that photo there is at least one hidden candy cane. You are to visit each DT Member's blog and keep track of the number of hidden candy canes. Better keep your calculator nearby to keep an accurate total. When finished, send your total to Send the TOTAL number of candy canes you found after visiting all the blogs.Make sure you include your name and e-mail address

My tag was such a joy to create! It is very large - about a foot in height. I've made it from Bristol board so that it will be as sturdy as can be. I covered that with decorative paper, cheesecloth, die cuts, a voile bag, word magnets, and gorgeous Tilda stamps. It is so pretty IRL!

Now, look the photo of my interactive tag creation. You can click on it to see a larger image. Hidden in that photo are red and white striped candy canes. After you find and count how many I've hidden, write that number down or add the number to your running total. Move along to the next blog in the blog hop list. Here is your photo:

You can find the following items in the Magnolia-licious Store. Just click the link for each.

Tilda with Christmas Baking
Tilda with Lovikka Mittens
Tilda on the Roof
Memory Box Frosty Border (along bottom)

I have also used a collection of other dies from my supplies. I've used the Magnolia Snowflake Die, Magnolia Poinsettia (for green leaves), Frosty Corner, Cheery Lynn snowflakes, and Marianne Design Poinsettias. The gold pearls are from my supplies as well. There is also cheesecloth around the perimeter. The voile bag is also from my supply collection.

Well, that's about all she wrote! You now must travel through cyberspace to see the gorgeous work of MARY GIEMZA!

Thank you so much for stopping hopping by! Good luck on the tag challenge as well as counting the candy canes for the Blog Hop!

If you leave a comment below, I will add your name into a draw for something special from me.
