Magnolia-licious Holiday Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Magnolia-licious Holiday Blog Hop!!!!  This is my first official post as a design team member and I am thrilled to join in on this hop.  You will find loads of adorable creations as you go along.

You should have just come from Suzanne's blog.  In case you get lost in the hop, you can always go to the Magnolia-licous Challenge Blog for complete details.

There are two fabulous ways to win on this hop:

#1 - You will gather the letters and clues on each participating blog to unscramble a phrase.  You will then email the finished phrase to the email given on the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  Do not leave the finished phrase on a comment post or else you will give it away!  One winner will randomly be chosen from those that get it CORRECT to win a Surprise Gift Package (value $50) from Magnolia-licious.

#2 -  For the month of December (deadline runs thru the31st) you can enter a Holiday/Winter themed project at the Challenge Blog in the InLinkz......First Place winner will win a Surprise Gift Pack (value $100) and a Runner Up winner will be chosen randomly from those entries for a Surprise Gift (value $50) from Magnolia-licous.

I have made a cocoa holder for my project today! 

I used Maja Design papers along with sweet Tilda-Santa's Little Helper.  She is currently out of stock right now at Magnolia-licous, but you can always contact Diana and put in a request for her.  I colored Tilda with a mixture of Distress Inks and Inktense pencils.

I made my own template to fit the hot cocoa packets, then made a lid to fit.  The wooden feet and handle are from Hobby Lobby.

I used the adorable Magnolia Sweet Lovely Lace Doohickey around the bottom edge along with the Leaf and Swirl Doohickey.

Be sure to visit all the participating blogs so that you have a chance to win!You will find loads of inspiration along the way!!!

The clue on my blog is the LETTER "e"!!!!!!!!!!

Your next hop is on to Diane Zechman! I'm sure she will have something wonderful to share with you.

Thank you for hopping by my blog!!!

Hugs and good luck!
