Magnolia-licious DT - Blog Hop - Summer Fun

 Good morning and welcome to the Magnolia-licious summer blog hop!  If you have arrived here from Julie's blog then you're on the right track.  If not, and you would like to start the hop from the beginning, hop back to the Magnolia-licious Challenge blog.
 I have made a caravan shaped diary/notebook for my little girl to take on our caravanning holiday so that she can write a diary and draw pictures while we're away.  I drew the caravan shape by hand and cut it from thick card before covering with pretty papers.
 I have painted Instagram Tilda with Distress Inks and added some Glossy Accents to the camera lens.
 The gorgeous ribbon and lace trim are from The Ribbon Girl...
 ...and so are the pink roses.  The twine and tiny bows are from my stash.  I used the flag Doohickey for the pennants across the caravan.
 The little jockey wheel was created with a button and memo pin from The Ribbon Girl and it actually spins round too!
 The caravan wheel was cut with dies and the little flower button is from my stash.
 I made curtains for the caravan door with some gingham ribbon and a door handle with a brad and tab grom my stash.
 Inside the caravan covers are decorated with pink and blue papers and there is plenty of paper for writing and drawing on.
 To complete the holiday set I made a matching book mark, pen and pencil.
 I covered a pencil and pen with coordinating paper and added pearls to the tops for a neat finish.
The reverse side of the bookmark has also been decorated to match the caravan.
I hope you have enjoyed your visit to my blog and you like my little notebook set.  Now it is time to hop back to the Magnolia-licious Challenge blog to end the hop!

What a perfect idea for your daughter! I would have loved one of these - such fun.
