Week #6 - A Very Special Birthday

Happy Wednesday Magnolia fans. Thank you to everyone who played along with our theme last week, we hope you all enjoyed creating your projects as much as we enjoyed looking at them.
Before we post our next theme, we would like to congratulate the Magnolia Marvels this week, who are

Big Congratulations to you Karen. If you would like to email Anne with your details and we'll arrange to have your prize sent to you.   Please can we also remind you that to be in the running for this special Mystery Prize, your creations can only be entered into a maximun of 5 challenges in total, one of them obviously Midweek Magnolias!  It is a great shame when we do the random generator and produce a number which has an entry that has been submitted to more than 5 other challenges and we have to re-draw it, but it wouldn't be fair on our sponsors who are giving away these fab prizes.

This week we are celebrating those milestone birthdays with "A Very Special Birthday". All birthday's are special, but some are more special than others, and this week we are paying tribute to those. Whether it's a baby's 1st, a child becoming a teenager, a sweet 16, a coming of age 18, key to the door 21, or those very scary ones that follow!! LOL! The team all had their own interpretation of what a special birthday was to them, and you may have your own special reason for celebrating a particular birthday, and that's what we'd like to see.

And joining us for this special occasion celebration is our very first Guest Designer here at Midweek Magnolia. We would like to introduce you to the very talented Karin Lubber who is joining us for the next two weeks. Thank you so much Karin for this stunning creation. It's so lovely to have you here with us.

And here are the fabulous creations that the team have created to inspire you.
