The royal (Magnolia) family is back at Sofiero

Hi there friends and followers! 
Welcome to my last anything goes themed creation for the Live and Love Crafts blog, this is also a GDT card for Noor! Design.

Ive chosen to work with an utterly lovely little Tilda princess and placed her in a window of a castle released early on. She is inked with Copics. Of course I just had to pair her up with my absolute fav paper collection. Its called Sofiero and is from Maja design. I decided I wanted to challenge myself a little by not using the sheets that are soooo obviously me and went for the also amazing but not that pink sheets. Ive used both front and backside of "Princess Margareta´s garden". For those unaware of what Sofiero is and why thats the name I can tell you a little about it cause it also explains the title I gave my post. 

The summer of 1864 the swedish crown-prince couple named Oscar II and his wife Sofia spent a summer at a friends house in south the south of Sweden near the city of Helsingborg. The both loved it so much they started looking for properties they could buy. It was considered a good thing for them all as they were sick and they needed the fresh air. They soon found a property with a priesting on it called "Skrabelycke" and renamed it "Sophie-Ro". They lived a much more free life on their in their new castle but as they became king and queen of Sweden they moved back to Stockholm and the royal visits to the castle became more and more rare as time went by. The beautiful castle is still there and today its a beautiful park with amazing nature and beautiful plants. Year 2010 it was named the most beautiful park in Europe.

So this is why I wrote the royal family is back at Sofiero ;) Princess Tilda is royal indeed :) Don't you think? ;) 

Ive also used another amazing LLC product that I want to mention. Ive always loved the flower sprays and now Sandy of LLC also decided to stock them in  my fav color - pink! OMGosh, I cannot tell you how lovely these are! Stunning! I have also used the amazing tulle :)

As always you can see the products Ive used listed at the end of my post, just click the picture and it will take you right there. 

The Noor! Design products of my choice are these two luscious dies: 

I love them both so much, the first one was a gift from my beloved friend Debbie for my birthday. Thank you so much sweetie! 

That was all from me today, I hope you liked my make :) 
Lots of love
