Whenever I think of magnolias, I am reminded of my grandmother. She has a huge magnolia tree in her front yard that I played under as a child. I can remember trotting my Barbies across fields of moss under the tree and making all kinds of things with the leaves and seed pods from the tree. So here is my grandmother . . . a picture I took of her in January 2008. All papers and elements are from Steel Magnolias, with the exception of the alpha, which is a freebie called Misty Night Alpha by New Life Dreams.
Here is a preview of the entire collection. There are so many wonderful collections in the store right now. Take a few minutes to have a peek here: SCRAP N TAG STORE.

I know that's what you wanted to do when you saw this page. This is my little man when he was just about 3 months old. We had gone outside for some fresh air and he was enjoying his bouncy seat. All of a sudden, I looked down and he had fallen asleep. He was so precious that I had my husband run to get our camera! It's been a long time since I've looked at these pictures, but I'm finally starting to scrap some older pictures, too.

Emily Falconbridge hosted this 52 week challenge on her blog . . . and we'll be following her challenge prompts for our journey as well.
You will need a deck of playing cards . . . there are jumbo playing cards that will give you a little more room if you think you need it, but the regular size playing cards are typically 2 1/2" x 3 1/2". A digi scrapper can simply create their LO in the 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" format and print it out to be adhered to the card . . . a paper scrapper can go all out . . . or go for a mix of the two and create a hybrid wonder!
The prompt for week one is to write about something you are proud of . . .
Here are my cards (front and back): MY CARD IN THE GALLERY
You can also see Emily's original card (so clever!) here:
EMILY FALCONBRIDGE'S CARD
Post your cards in the gallery at The Shaker Box HERE.
I am looking forward to seeing all of your creations!
