Magnolia-licious Summer Blog Hop - Picture Heavy!

Ok so now that you've come from the sensational Sheri's blog and seen it all you're thinking....OMG WHAT COULD POSSIBLY BE NEXT?!!  That's what I thought too so I kind of really pushed the envelope on this one.  For the life of me I couldn't think of anything to do but I'm sure after hopping through this myself I'll do the forehead smack thing.  DOH!  Why didn't I think of that?!!  
So my project for today is a jar wrapper for displaying homemade blueberry jam!  Yup I made it ... funny thing...we don't really eat much jam!  LOL!!

I know lots of canning goes on near the end of summer and it gave me the chance to use this sweetest image called "Blueberry Tilda".  I also made a card so you could give away both items as a gift.  The image on the card is called "I'm In Love" but as you can see, she's very versatile.  The bench is also from Magnolia.

I made my own shabby flower and distressed the edges then used some pieces from Wild Orchid Crafts for my center. 

All my dragonflies are distressed with brown (actually the whole project is) and then the blue flowers and dragonflies are touched with Stardust Stickles on the wing tips.  I love the blueberry paper from Magnolia but unfortunately it's not longer available.  I don't like using stuff you can't buy however, any of the Magnolia papers are gorgeous!!  Especially from the new Special Moments line.   

I don't think I've ever used this many Magnolia Doohickey's on one project EVER!!  But I love them so much!  So seen here are: dragonfly, leaf, clouds, fence, grass and another leaf die.  WOW!!

AND THERE YOU HAVE IT!!  I hope you've enjoyed the blog hop and if you've missed anyone or anything you can head back over to the Magnolia-licious challenge blog where all the greatness started to check out the details.
