Magnolia Open Weekend - Boras, Sweden and a Tag

Hi everyone and it's good to be back after a couple of weeks of  being out of action due to one thing or another, hope you're all keeping well.

First I'd like to share a tag I've made using the beautiful special stamp that is available only at doe@ding in the Netherlands at the moment. This sweet little Tilda stamp was a gift from my lovely DT friend Monique via doe@ding and I'd like to thank them both. A gorgeous Tilda to colour and I love the flower! 

The Magnolia Open Weekend in Boras, Sweden was a truly memorable one for me, I'll never forget the experience and I'd like to thank everyone at Magnolia for inviting me, for all they did to welcome and look after us and for making a dream come true. To my gorgeous DT friends DebbieAlbiMoniqueLillemor and Camilla and to the lovley Angela and Albi's Mum Christina, thank you for making the weekend such a great one, it was wonderful to meet you all and thank you for your company, the laughs and friendship. Thank you Camilla and Lillemor for a great welcome to Sweden, I loved it! I also got the chance to briefly meet my team mate Hanna who came along on Saturday, she's just as sweet in real life. 

Thank you's done, I can say that the workshops went well and it was a pleasure to work with the ladies and children who came along. It was so good to meet blog friends Louise and Marika, what a treat and such lovely ladies! Lots of kisses (3) to you all :). 
The line up before we started on Saturday morning and a little funny moment which was all about my invisibility behind the tree of course :D!

More photo's below but unfortunately I didn't get as many as I would have liked. My DT friends projects were incredibly beautiful and their work even more inspirational in real life. The Magnolia home shop is a dreamy place for all things shabby chic, the Christmas tree ornaments are just the kind that I like so I brought a few things home!
It was brilliant to walk around the shop and see some of the creations of my team mates in real life, they're all so very talented.

It only remains to say that I hope to go back to Sweden one day!

Back soon with my one and only halloween Magnolia project, I don't have much reason to make halloween cards but I love the halloween stamps so I have to make something! Catch up with you all soon.
