Week # 17 - Lovely Lace

Well here we are again!  Another Wednesday, another new theme.

First of all though we want to explain a couple of little changes that we have planned.  Normally at this stage we are letting you know who our Magnolia Marvel's are and announcing the winner of the random draw for that fantastic mystery prize from Magnolia in Sweden.  However, we have decided that we would like to take a little more time choosing our Top 3 as your amazing projects really do deserve to have as much of our attention as we can give them.  So, from this week we are going to post a seperate announcement each Friday with our Top 3 and Prize Winner!  So, pop back on Friday and see if you're one of our lucky players!
Right then, now to introduce this week's theme which is LOVELY LACE.  Your project doesn't have to be a card, as long as it features at least one Magnolia image/Doo Hickey/Papers, etc, and adorn it with some Lovely Lace!   Please don't forget to leave an URL direct to your project (and no backlinks please) once you've finished. We are really looking forward to visiting your blog and having a drool over your creations. A special request from the team also, PLEASE would you turn word verification OFF as it just takes up such a lot of time to leave feedback and we are hoping to have lots of blogs to visit.
In the meantime, our fab team have been creating some gorgeous samples to inspire you. Take a peek at this wonderful selection:







Hope you enjoy the theme. Don't forget to leave your link.

DT Announcement

Well, here is the news as promised.  First of all we would like to thank each and every one of you who applied to be on our team.  We were absolutely overjoyed at the number of entrants we had, but at the same time we were very sad that not everyone would get the opportunity this time.  We had in fact planned to take on just another 2 or 3 new members but it was just soooo hard to make the selection that we decided that we would take on an extra 7, doubling our team size, and forming two teams.  We are now Team A and Team B and each team will post on a fortnightly basis which will give you lots of variety from an inspirational point of view.

To those of you who didn't make it this time, we are truly sorry but we just couldn't take everyone.  We were so blown away by all the talent out there and the selection process was so difficult, but you can reassure yourself that you were this close{.}....  Please don't let it deter you from applying again in the future as things change in blogland all the time.  In the meantime we hope you will continue to play along with us and join in the fun.

Now for the new teamies list.  Please would you give a very warm welcome to:


We hope that the ladies will enjoy being part of this team, creating beautiful samples which will continue to inspire you to join in with us.  Thank you to everyone else once again.
