BLOG HOP - CALENDAR

Welcome to our Calendar Blog Hop!  This hop will be held December 28, 29 and 30. The Grand Prize Blog Candy is a brand-new Designer’s Calendar Cartridge, donated by Karelj at One By One The Flamingos Are Stealing My Sanity. In order to be eligible to win, you need to leave a comment on each and every stop on the hop, along with a way for Karel to contact you. She will choose a winner by random.org on the 31st and announce it on her blog, as well as contacting the winner personally. 
I have to admit, I love some of this My Mind's Eye paper sooooo much that it's really hard to cover it up.  But what better to cover it with than with Tildas and nestabilities.  I suppose we all have addictions, but two of mine are Magnolia Stamps and Nestabilities - such cute shapes!





The Tildas were colored with my copics.  The dates were stamped onto a present shape cut from Joys of the Season at 1"; the "bow" on the top of each present was blinged up with Stickles.  I was very, VERY excited to use the grid - it was leftover from cutting out 1 1/2 squares and I've been wanting to use it for something!  The little embellishments were cut from Stretch Your Imagination and JOTS.  "December" and "2011" were cut from Daisy Chain.   Because I could not cut these in a shadow option, I cut them the same size, cut  the little links off the solid color and laid them on top of the glittery cuts. 

For my blog hop candy, I have Perfect Pearls.  I will choose the winner from the comments left under this post, using random.org, and will post the winner no later than December 31.

  18. Your backround paper is beautiful. I know what you mean about covering it up. I really like those two little girls that you added. I never saw them before. They are adorable.

    I would love to win that Blog Candy that you have. I was at AC Moore today and I almost bought it for myself but then I didn't because I never used it before. So I passed on it.

    Thanks for joining this hop with us.

  41. So sweet! I think those little girls are so cute. If I didn't already have bagillions of other supplies and stamps I'd get a few of those. I do love hoarding cool paper and having a tea drinking ceremony and a smarmy smile on my face when I find the perfect use for it!
    Fun hopping with ya!
