November Magnolia-licious DT Challenge ~ Interactive Holiday Tags

Hello!  Happy end of November … (not really happy since the month has gone by way tooo quickly,

but at least we have Christmas to look forward to… right??!)   🙂

It’s time for a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog!

This month, our challenge is


Fun, right?


If you’ve arrived here from the awesome

Chris Christensen’s blog ~ A SCRAPER’S MUSINGS,

you’re at the right place.

If you just happened to stop by today, and would like to start from the beginning to see all the Interactive Holiday Tags, please start at the Magnolia-licious Highlites blog for the complete list of participants.

The best part of our challenge today is … we actually have TWO challenges or chances for you to WIN!!!

1.  The first challenge is to create an Interactive Holiday Tag using at least (1) Magnolia stamp, link your tag at the Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge Blog and you’ll be entered for a chance to wine (1) $50 Gift Certificate to store!!!

 2.  The second challenge is to count the number of candy canes from each DT members’ Main photo, email your total count to, for a chance to win an ADDITIONAL prize of  (1) $50 Gift Certificate!!!

 AND, you have until Dec 29th to enter.


So, I have a confession, I totally misunderstood the challenge and made my tag to interact with the actual gift!!


But, don’t worry, I made another !   😀    And, I apologize now for the extra LONG post today!!

(This is my MAIN Challenge Photo … Don’t forget to count the “hidden” candy canes!!) 

My FIRST tag features the adorable DANCING WITH STARS TILDA from the Little Christmas Collection 2012.

It’s hard to tell from the photos, but the papers have a slight green tint,

sooo I colored Tilda with matching colors to match the actual gift … lots of  chocolate”MINTY” treats.

the inside of the gift box, lined with matching papers …

… filled gift box

As I mentioned I totally blew this challenge!

But, in an effort to try to correct my error, I’ve made a REAL interactive Holiday Tag


from the Sweet Christmas Dreams 2011 Collection,

and wanted to share this with you VERY quickly  …

This tag is SOOOO much fun —  it’s a Double Sliding tag!    The directions can be found HERE.
