Land of Magnolia Through the Seasons,I Won 2nd PL!!!!


FINALLY!!!!!! LOL! OK i know I've been talking about my Land and so on.It was a process for me to get it on my blog because it had to be presented by Diana Crick first.When she then posted my entry i realised i had to do a book for her to go with the scenery and since she was still presenting all the entries i had to wait for her to finish so i could share my other part just out of courtesy.My original entry was a power point presentation and it was so pretty because i had it on slide show mode.After a few seconds it will show a new page and it made this chime sound as a fairytale lol!! I know maybe it was too cheesy lol !!! BUT IT WAS PRETTY LOL!!! Diana couldn't open it so i needed to change it to PDF format lol!! So I had to loose the chime and the font no biggie LOL! My story had to be created following some few rules.Diana gave us a few words that needed to be included part of the story. So there is a reason my land was all together because my Maggie's live through the seasons all at once BAAAHAAAAA!! I'm thinking of using them individually here at home and display them through my seasons.I can't wait to display my HALLOWEEN THEME THAT'S MY FAVE!!!! I'm gonna add more leaves though to cover it all up and do piles of leaves through the whole scenery more realistic no???
There were toooooooooooooo many pictures for the land so i put them on a slide show and i will just post my book and the card i gave Diana when i saw her here at CHA!! Ya know i had to do a card for her :) OK now enough waffling and if you have time to read my story in rhyme take a seat and enjoy. You could see my entry here along with the rest of the entries if you like to take a peek.

Land of Magnolia Through the Seasons

Welcome to the divine place of Magnolia world. Where day dreams and imagination twirl and whirl. In this magical place don’t be surprised to find, adventurous kids with wings, they’re one of a kind. Here you find Tilda and Edwin who love to play, with their friends at the barn, the park or by the bay.
During the months of spring, Tilda takes advantage, to plant a garden with herbs, mushrooms and cabbage. Eating warm soup is sure to take away the gloom, that lets the kids enjoy spring in all of it’s bloom. Fresh pink flowers cover the ground of a white church, witnessing the marriage of two who've ended their search. The season soon changes and new fun will ensue, giving the children new adventures to pursue.The summer brings them heat and also much delight, that will leave them the bliss of a funky kite flight. It’s in June that they find comfort with each other, going fishing with their mother and their father. They cant forget the worms if they want to make a catch. They’ll cook up fish-n-chips and eat them by the batch. Fun summer days are full of sunshine in July, Edwin chases after a magic butterfly. Yes, in the beautiful outdoors he spends his time, but he’d rather get a drink with a little bit of lime. Its off to get ice cream with Tingla in August, they look after her much because she’s the youngest. The season soon changes and new thrills will follow, into the season that gives them creepy Eves Hollow.
Angel-children look forward to the colors of fall. Picking the biggest pumpkin, they’re sure to have a ball. By the town square with a rickety gate, a spooky house stands. The children pass with closed eyes but their courage expands. The autumn season will leave the children some frights, but not without eating bags of sugary bites. The season soon changes and new memories will be made, when the outdoors are glittered white and brightly displayed.
There’s nothing like winter for hot cocoa and snow, cuddling with old Rufus, when it’s thirteen below. Alva and Alf, always ready to spread the joy, so that it may live in every little girl and boy. Carolers will soon arrive to knock at the door, and everyone applauds for them to sing more. Baby Alvin sits with pacifier in hand, waiting for Santa, and expects it’ll be grand.
The night continues and gradually grows noiseless, but out of the night a few familiar voices. It’s Tilda and Edwin with a whole-hearted wish. They promise forever they’re family to cherish. They continue their prayer for all to believe, in the magic of friendship and love that’s received.
The season soon changes and a new year will be the perfect beginning for a sweet memory.
