M.A.G. turns 1 Year Old Blog Hop

For Adopt a Shelter Pet Blog Hop click here

Wow!!  I cannot believe it has been a year since we started MAG Challenge by the Page!  Our birthday is today and we are having a party!!   Who knew that 3 friends skyping would lead to an awesome challenge blog.  We are celebrating with a few friends that will share birthday themed projects and blog candy!  So, please make sure you hop along and leave everyone some love!

If you came from visiting Melissa, you are in the right place!  If you've just happened across my blog and would like to hop along with us, you can go to MAG and start at the beginning!  At MAG, Mary at CardzTV is sponsoring our prize!! Thanks, Mary!   We are giving away one of her new stamp sets, Thankful for You!  So, go to MAG and become a follower for a chance to win!!!

Now, for my project!  I always like to try something new for a Blog Hop, so I made an explosion box.  I was very surprised how easy it was to make!  It may be because I only made it one layer!    For what I was trying to create, I think it came out pretty nice!  Thank God, for my Martha Stewart scoreboard!!!

I used Emma's Wow, So Many Candles for the sentiment!  The rhinestones are from Michael's.


Close up lid top!


 Here is the inside, I use Sweet Treats for the presents and candle!  I made the cake on my own!  The flowers are an EK Success punch!



Thanks, for hanging in there, I know it was long, but I wanted to show you the box and I had to post more pictures than usual!  But, good things come to those that wait.  I have Blog Candy!!!  The blog candy is a set of Emma's Wow, So Many Candles sentiment stamps!  I really love her stamps!   So, just leave a comment by Monday, October 24th, no later than 11:59pm (EST).  I will announce the winner on Tuesday, October 25th. You must be a follower!!! Thanks and enjoy the Hop!!!



Now head on over to Gwen at This and That to see what awesome project she has to inspire you!

I have yet to attempt an explosion box, but I LOVE the way it looks! It looks like such a fun thing to give to someone as it will be such a surprise to my non-crafty friends. I really like the color and pattern scheme of yours. The zebra goes so well with the pink and black!

Thanks for the chance at the candy! I'm already a follower.
