I have created 3 projects for our hop.

My first project is a photo album for baby girl.  It's hard to tell from the pics but the album is a lovely soft purple.   There are 10 page protectors (20 pages)  that are approximately 8x5.  I have added background paper to the pages for you to mount your favorite photos on.    I used the "Babys 1st Christmas" cutting files.  I took pictures of a few of the pages.

My second project is a journal  made using the "Elf on a Shelf" files.  The journal is approximately 10x10 and has 30 blank pages to hold pictures and journaling about your "Elf" over the years!


My last project is a set of four note cards made using one of the newsletter  "freebie" files!!  Each week our newsletter has an exclusive freebie for subscribers only :)  Sign up today!!


It's Christmas time and in the spirit of gift giving I'm going to keep my Blog Candy a surprise!!  I will say it will be sweet!!  I will draw a winner on 12-11-11 around 9 a.m.  To enter become a follower of my blog and leave a comment under THIS post.  Be sure to visit my Facebook page also (just click the link here on my blog) and become a follower for a chance to win some more candy!!
