HOWDY!

Today's Magnolia-licious Challenge is to create a card or project using the provided picture as the inspiration.



For the challenge I created a 12x12 layout using Magnolia #229 Cowgirl Tilda from Magnolia-licious.
The patterned paper I used is from Creative Imagination. I also used Quickutz, Thickers, Jo-lee's, and Bazzill cardstock.



Here is a close-up of Cowgirl Tilda. I used Copic markers to color the image.


The photograph is of me around the age of 5. As a child I loved anything related to cowboys. Roy Rogers and The Lone Ranger were my idols (along with Superman). The 50's was a great time to be a kid.

I hope you participate in the Magnolia-licious Challenge. You might win a prize from Diana.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day! Linda C

Hi Linda,
I love your scrapbook page!!
Your paper is great! Tilda is coloured perfectly.
Love the picture of you and that you created a scrapbook page. It's a real treat to see you use different ideas each week!
I was a child in the 50's too and I agree it couldn't have been a better time to grow up.
Hugs, Candy
