Back To School - FFFC #96

Hello.  Happy Friday!

It's a new challenge at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge Blog.  This challenge is being hosted by the lovely Sheryl and her chosen theme is...'Back To School'.  More details of the challenge and how to join in the fun can be found at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge Blog.  Also, check out the fabulous cards/projects of my DT teammates for inspirations.

This theme's got me stumped for a while.  I couldn't think of a card to make, so instead I've made a few things that can be considered 'school' stuff.. I think, LOL.

I came up with a post-it-note holder and 2 different types of bookmarks.

And yes, I've put an adorable Magnolia image on each.

This post-it-note holder features Invitation Tilda from the Special Moments Collection 2013.

The two bookmarks feature
- Mini Tilda With Spitz Pocket from the Special Moments Collection 2013
- Editor Tilda from the Turning Leaves Collection 2012

The stamps for these adorable images and other Magnolia images--both full-size and mini stamps--are available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store.  If you don't see the particular one you are looking for, contact Diana and ask her if she can bring it in for you.
Magnolia-licious also carries those beautiful Wee Stamps by Sylvia Zet and newly introduced to the store are the wonderful Wild Rose Studio stamps.
Prices are discounted!  Along with excellent customer service, you get to earn 2% in-store credit of every order which you can apply to future purchases.  Sweet!
