"Edwin" Themed BLOG HOP!!

Hello Magnolia friends & Happy Friday! Today the DT has a fun "Edwin" (boy) themed BLOG HOP for you today! Most of us struggle to create boy themed cards so the DT thought it would be fun to make only Edwin cards for you to take some inspiration from!!

The blog hop starts off this time with DT sistah' Jacque & finishes with me, Suzanne. So make sure & hop along to see all the fabulous boy creations by the entire DT that hopefully will inspire you & give you some ideas for the "boys" in your life!!

And if you are sooo inspired & would like to join in the fun, there are 2 $10 gift certificates to Magnolia-licious up for grabs for playing along! All you need to do is create an "Edwin" project and link it here in the comments section so we can all see!! You have until July 25th to get your projects in to win!! The DT wanted to give away 2 great prizes to you all for being such a fun & supportive group here & hopping around with us today!!

Suzanne, Diana & the Magnolia-licious DT

**PS--Mr. Linky is having issues that hopefully will be resolved soon; so just leave a link in the comment section with your project for the blog hop & the monthly sketch! Thanks so much!!"
