"Hopping Through The Holidays" Blog Hop is HERE! Ends 12/4/11! Giveaway Too!

Hi everyone!  I am so excited to be a part of such a wonderful blog hop!  We have loads of holiday inspiration for you!  You should have arrived from Becki's blog.  If you started here, go to Belinda's blog to start at the beginning of the hop. 

I decorated two 8x10 shadow boxes for the holidays.  I went glitter crazy again!!!  LOL!  And, I am lovin' it!  The glitter shimmers in the light - so perfect for the holidays! 

Here is the first shadow box I made.  The holly and joy caption are SVGs by My Scrap Chick.  Also, I used twine from The Twinery.  The paper for both projects is by My Mind's Eye.


The second shadow box is glittery too!  I used SVGs by for this box.  I also used iridescent glitter from Martha Stewart Crafts (the little blue stars), sentiment by Fiskars, and gems by Creative Charms.

If you get lost during the hop, below is the hop line-up.  The next stop on the hop is the very talented Alyssa, also creator of My Thoughts Exactly stamps.  Her stamps are the cutest!!!
