Framed Magnolia

Oh my! What a busy weekend. A friend invited me up to Ft Wilderness at Disney. I was only going to stay one night, but ended up there for the entire weekend. We had such a good time. We left the boys home and it was a total girls weekend. We went to Disney's Not-so-Scary Halloween and got a bag full of candy (as if we needed that!). Then stuffed ourselves at the Food and Wine Event at Epcot on Saturday. I must say, that was delicious!!!!!!!  Epcot usually has food and beer from all the counties but this event has samples from all the regular countries and more.  We ate our way around Epcot, I'm not even kidding! We could hardly walk when we left!

I didn't have time for any stamping over the last few days, but I did have this little framed Magnolia finished but not blogged yet. I can't take credit for for the idea to frame it. My friend suggested that and I think it turned out great.


The background stamp is from Alota, you can pick it up in the Magnolia-licious shop HERE.  I didn't see Tilda w/Bike in Dianas shop at the moment, but I am sure if you ask, she would be able to get it for you. 

I colored this image with Distress Inks (still practicing...not going to give up just yet!!) I picked up the frame from JoAnns. I think the inside is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2.  My daughter took this and put it on her shelf in her room. Not before making her version. She gave this to her Kindergarten teacher for her birthday last week.  


Be looking for some Sneak Peeks from the Elisabeth Bell Digi Collection this week. You can take  guesses of what the digi is on the blog EACH DAY. There will be one winner from each day for a total of 4 (mon-thurs) then the newest Digi will be released on Friday. The DT is also having a blog hop. I can't wait, I love lvoe love my card and can't wait to share it. It's going to be hard looking at it all week and not be able to share!!  So be sure to check ou the Digi Bells DT blog this week!!!

Thanks for looking and have a great evening.
