Happy birthday Magnolialicious

I dont think i have had so much fun creating anything in ages.  The birthday bash for Magnolialicious 2nd birthday started yesterday with a blog hop, and then the challenge is to create an EXPLOSION BOX!!

Well since it is a birthday i thought to use the theme in my box.  The images i used are not essentially birthday, as they were released as Christmas collection, however i do think since they dipict Tilda with prezzies they can be used for Birthdays.  I used tons of stickles, but unfortunately you never see them as well in photos, so thats a bit of a bummer :(, then i also made the little prezzies to go onto and into my box, my images were colored with copics, sorry girls i forgot in my excitement to make a list or take a picture.  I made a swirly for the inside of my box with acetate to attach some streamers and balloons.

Oh the picture dont do it justice, even if i say so myself, i am so pleased with this, hope this will inspire you to take part, it is so much easier than it looks, and they have a tutorial that you can follow, so how dificult can it be.tutorial
