Birthday Bash Blog Hop! Week #1

Happy Saturday to all you fabulous Magnolia fans and friends! As you know the Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group is celebrating 2 years and we're having a splendid bash to celebrate over the next 8 weeks.

To kick Week One off the Magnolia-licious DT is having a Blog Hop today featuring Explosion Boxes (or what I like to call Happy Surprises) all featuring a birthday, anniversary or celebration theme!

Below is the official Blog Hop order to get you started on the right path--I know you will have a joyous and fun time hopping along to see the DT's creations. We hope to inspire you and get your mojo juices flowing, because there is always a challenge and a prize at the end of the hop! (see end of post for challenge rules)

**BLOG HOP BEGINS on 5/15 at 4 am EST**
