An Easter Explosion Box - Magnolia-licious Easter Blog Hop

Hello and Happy Spring!

It's an Easter Blog Hop at Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps Challenge Blog!  And woo-hoo...I get to start this blog hop.  I hope you'll take part because my DT teammates have really created fabulous projects for your eyes to feast on.  Blog-hop details and the order of the participants can be found at the Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps Challenge Blog (so if you get lost during the hop...LOL, head over there).

I'll try to make this short and sweet, so you can continue on your way... 

My project is this Easter themed explosion box.



All the stamps used are from Magnolia of course.  Magnolia stamps (full-size and mini) are available from Diana's on-line store, Magnolia-licious.  If you don't see the particular one you are looking for in the store, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.  And newly available at Magnolia-licious are those wonderful Wee Stamps by Sylvia Zet.
Prices are discounted prices, you get excellent service and you also earn 2% in-store credit with every purchase! Sweet.

Here are the Magnolia images I used--all coloured with Letraset Promarkers and Pantone Trias.



Tilda Hiding Easter Egg from the Little Easter Collection 2013
