Magnolia-licious Calendar Blog Hop!

Welcome to our Magnolia-licious Monthly Blog Hop! This month all of the Design Team has made calendar pages, I had June and July. A few months ago my friend and dt sister Angie came up with the calendar idea. We all sent our pages to Angie and she put together the calendar and sent it to Diana for Christmas. Diana sent the sweetest email once she recieved it. We all wished we could have been there to see her open it.

If you haven't started at the beginning on the hop please start at the Magnolia-licious Highlights blog. The next on the hop is our lovely and talented Cheryl! I cant wait to see all the girls pages! I hope you enjoy our hop!

Dont forget to check out the new Be Mine Magnolia Ink and the You are so Special Collection!

Challenges
Stamp Something - Anything Goes
Pile it on - Anything Goes






I am actually really late for this post and so tired, It's 12:30AM, my little one is sick and sleeping and I'm too tired and lazy to open my armoire and dig out all the names of the paper.. so instead I'm going to do a candy for the hop! That's better anyways right??

I have an extra Bon Voyage stamp which are the stamps I've used for both these pages. Leave you name in the Mr. Linky and I will draw a winner by Friday January 21st

All you have to do is be a follower and spread the word!

Thanks always for the lovely comments. I enjoy them so much!
Here's what you could win!
