Midweek Magnolia's 100th Celebration

I am so excited to be back! We are officially Florida residents. Our new house is great. Still more to do. My husband is too sweet. He is painting my craft room pink and laying down a wood floor. As soon as it is complete I will post some photos.

Needless to say my scrapping is a little scattered. I hope you will join us this week for our 100th Blog Celebration.  We have lots of great prizes and several of the DT are giving away candy.  Don't forget to leave me a comment for a chance to win my candy.

If you came from Gayle's lovely blog then you are on the right track!

I used a canvas heart which I stenciled with light modeling paste and the I used Bloom Sprays to add color to the heart.  I chose various stamps for the background and of course the main star is Bonny Tilda. I colored her with Copic Markers and used Frantage on her wings and on the canvas. The canvas was embellished with flowers, lace, decorative pins, metal key and tulle bow. The paper is from pion.

Now for my candy......

Good Luck!
