Just Magnolia #56...The Princess has Spoken!

Hey crafty friends! Hot enough for ya!? We are having a heat wave here in Ontario, that is for sure! It was 31 degrees C today, record breaking temps for this time of year! Looks like we are in for a hot summer! But hold on, it's still technically, spring...well, that's just fine with me!!!
Well, tonight I wanted to share this easel desktop calendar I made for ME, ME, ME...yes, little ol' ME, he, he, he, and I'm going to put it on my desk at work! I made it with the fabulous sketch that the uber-talented, Jane, designed for Just Magnolia challenge this week!

Now why has it taken me sooooo long to ink up sweet Tilda with Apple!? Did you notice she has a striking resemblance to my favourite Princess, Snow White!? Well, I just had to colour her up just like Snow White!!! I used my Copics and I added some glaze pen to her shoes and the apple. She is just toooooo cute for her to bits!!! I used this yummy Cosmo Cricket paper from stash...oh, I just love this paper! My dear sweet friend and BG DT member Tara W sent me a couple of these fab mini calendars and the perfect little apple charm is from my other dear sweet friend and BG DT boss, smile, Martine!

And I have been saving this great Melissa Frances rub-on too...yes, I think I can totally be a "princess" now and how fitting is this sentiment...I know my hubby, Chris and my Mom would say this suits me to a T, smile! I'm loving my new MS butterfly punch...getting lots of use and of course I used some American Crafts ribbon and Prima flowers and Dollar store roses.
Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek!!!
