Our New Colour Challenge and an Introduction!

February 07, 2011

Hi Magnolia Friends!

Seems like a long time since I have spoken to you. I guess lots has happened between then and now.

We have a new Design Team Member today and I would like to introduce her to you all.
We are all thrilled to have Paola Levi with us and I know you will love her work!!!
With out further ado I will let Paola tell you about herself:
"Hi my name is Paola Levi, my middle name starts with an A and my initials spell PAL which I have always thought was great since then I could be the Pal of everyone LOL.
I'm married to a wonderfully patient and indulgent guy who totally gets me and my obsession. We have four great children, our eldest is about to embark on his own future with a great girl that he has been dating for almost nine years, so I will soon have another daughter to get hooked on paper crafting.
I have had a passion for paper crafting for the past five years that began with scrapbooking and just evolved into my love of all things Magnolia.
We live in South Africa and I have always thought that Africa seems to always be a little behind the times, so I am so happy to be a part of a team that is right on track with the times and hope to help inspire some of the crafters this side of the globe to get up to date and fall in love with these darling little characters.
I am so pleased to have been chosen to work on the design team as this has been a dream of mine since I accidentally started blogging and discovered all the uber talented bloggers on the www.
Thanks so much Diana for this wonderful opportunity, I look forward to being an integral part of the team."
I am sure you will all find Paola's work exciting and be watching for her cards.

  3. Congratulations firstly to Lesley for winning the challenge and then to Paola on joining the DT.

    Fabulous creations with Tracy's challenge DT, I have to really think about this color combo.


  4. My comment is about my posting. There is a red X beside it and I am not sure what I am doing wrong. The #2 posting from someone else does not have the red X. Please help and tell me what I did wrong. It kept asking me to link to my blog and I filled it out and when I click on the picture, it goes to my blog. BUT what is the red X?

    Congrats to Paula for her new position and your recent winner.

    I hope to hear from someone soon. Thanks a bunch.


  5. Congrats to Paola on joining the DT. Beautiful work by all, lots of Magnolia eye candy ;). I'm kind of scared of the color challenge, lol! The pink, white, and silver did not go well for me!

  6. Martha - You haven't done anything wrong.
    I believe the red x shows that you are online.
    I have gone to lots of blogs with the Link and every time I am there there is a red x beside my name when I am online at that blog once I have entered the challenge. Doesn't matter if it is for blog candy or a card challenge...
    Hope that has helped you - Hugs, Candy

  7. Wow did you ladies ever challenge me on this one!! Phew! Great cards for inspiration tho.

    Congrats to Lesley!! Hugs!
