It’s Blog Hop time again over at the Magnolia-licious™ Challenge and this time our theme is Summer. You should have arrived from our wonderful GDT Celine’s blog but if you hopped straight here you will definitely want to pop back to the Magnolia-licious™  Challenge blog and hop right through from the start. I’ve chosen some cute Magnolia Summer Tildas to create this pretty Pineapple box and card:
