Happy Birthday MDUC!!!

{{Please scroll down for my Tickled Pink Lil Lads release blog hop post. It's a hip hoppin' Sunday around these parts, LOL!!}}
Good Morning Magnolia Fans!! Welcome to a very special week at Magnolia Down Under Challenges.

This week marks our 2nd birthday!
And to celebrate we are having a fantastic blog hop with amazing prizes from four fabulous sponsors. In order to win one of the amazing prizes from our sponsors, you will have to enter our challenge! Which is...
TWO - two of anything (two images, two different DP, two flowers - or any combination or groups of two items you can come up with)!

As usual you have until Saturday 19th March, 8am Melbourne Australian time to enter.
BUT WAIT! There is MORE!

We also have a fabulous blog hop happening with loads of candy on offer. We are also really excited to have special guest appearances from TWO long lost DT members, Jodie and Stephanne! Thank you so much girls for joining us for our birthday bash!

If you arrived here from Denise then you are on the right track, if not then why not head on over to MDUC and start your hop :)

So, in keeping with the 2 theme I have used 2 Tildas, 2 DP's, 2 different embellishments (flowers and gems) and 2 different coloured cards for matting. I did want to use my Tilda with Balloon stamp too, so we could really make it a party, but that would have been too many stamps so I guess she will just have to wait until next year to be invited to the party, LOL!

Here is a close up of the party girls, I have raised Tilda with the birthday cake using foam adhesive for a little dimension.
Your next stop on the birthday blog hop is Jane (again, lol. *see below*) who I am sure will wow you all with her amazing creation.
Have fun, hippity hop!!
