Birthday Wishes - Magnolia-licious

Good morning and welcome to our next Colour Challenge at Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. So it's officially summer in our house. School is out and the kids are already bored!!!  Poor things. Gosh what I wouldn't do for 10 weeks off of work for no other reason than to chill out and relax!   Those kiddos have a pretty busy schedule though, so hopefully they won't be terribly bored. We wouldn't want that, now would we? 

We had a busy weekend. My nephew came in town so we hung out at a friends house playing volleyball until a torrential downpour came. Ended the night watching that horrible NBA game between the Celtics and Heat. I really wanted Celtics to win. Not only am I a huge fan of them but truth be told, they are getting old and some of their contracts are up....so I really wanted them to get to the finals again!!! Yes, I am being a poor sport about it and I don't care. Living in Florida I get tormented about being a Celtic Fan. Not to mention, I am originally from Ohio, so I do root for some of those teams and LeBron use to be my favorite player and now I would like for nothing more than him to FAIL! LOL  Yes...I said it. I think the boy needs to be humbled for another year!!  So GO OKLAHOMA THUNDER...;-)

This weeks Color inspiration is -  Pink, Orange, White and Green....



I used Tilda w/Balloon, which is available in the Magnolia-licious Store.  I used a the dot technique for the background. The papers are from Authentique. That beautiful Bakers Twine color is cantaloupe and it is available at The Ribbon Carousel.

Be sure to come by the Challenge blog and check out all the brilliant creations from the other DT.  Join us in the challenge to win a $25.00 Gift Certificate to the Magnolia-licious Store.
