Circle Journal Page #3: The Beginning of the Magnolias

**Click HERE to go to Saturday Spotlight: Repeatedly Useful challenge for this week!**

Stamps: Magnolia 'Tilda with Dala Horse', Polka Dot Punches. Cardstock: My Mind's Eye 'Out and About with glitter', Papertrey white, textured red. Ink: Memento black, Versamark, Copics. Accessories: Long Rectangle Nestabilites, 'Winter Wonderland' EP.

And this is where my obsession with Magnolias began -- a Tilda with a Dala horse! It reminded me so much of the year I spent in Sweden that I had to have it which led to having to have so many more!!

The sketch for this page is based on Taylored Expressions sketch #89 in a very CAS form; who needs layers when the DP is so fun? I also used the DP to paper-piece Tilda's dress.

This is my final page in the circle journal and it just wouldn't have been complete without a Magnolia since all the gals in the group are a little hooked on them!
