Jacksonbelle 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop!

Welcome to day 12 of the Jacksonbelle 12 Days of Christmas! Today we have a super fun blog hop for all of you. The entire Jacksonbelle design team has created some gorgeous Christmas projects to share with you today! If you are just joining us, be sure to start at the very begining (Tobi's blog) so that you don't miss out on any of the fabulous projucts. Also, be sure to follow through the entire blog hop and leave a comment on each blog. There will be some fabulous October Afternoon blog candy given away on one of the blogs...but which one? It is a mystery! Be sure to leave a comment on every blog in the hop because you never know which blog will have the mystery candy!

For my card I used one of the adorable holiday Gillian F. Roberts stamps from Stampavie.

The next stop in the hop is the super talented Jimmi Mayo!

Oh and before I forget...ALL Inkadinkado stamps and stamp sets are 75% off in the Jacksonbelle store. They won't last long at those prices though. The sale is only valid on in stock items. Once these are gone they will not be restocked.

Lindsey is also having a pre-order of the new Basic Grey!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge and a Blog Hop!

It's Wednesday! That means it is time for another fun Wednesday Prettie Challenge and blog hop! This week our challenge comes from Prettie Mama herself! Christie's challenge for everyone is to make a 6x6 scrapbook page. We would love for you to ink up your Paper Pretties stamps and play along with us. One lucky challenge participant will win a $15 coupon to the Paper Pretties Boutique. Here are the challenge details:

How to Enter: make a card using the provided sketch and any Paper Pretties stamp set(s) you have. Upload the card to the Paper Pretties gallery. Please include it in the Weekly Challenges album and use keyword PWC75.
Deadline: 6pm EST Tuedsay, December 15th.
Prize: $15.00 coupon to the Paper Pretties Boutique

I have to admit I have been a terrible scrapper the past year. I think I've maybe made a total of 6 pages. I am grossly behind on my kids books! Christie's challenge got my mind back in scrapping mode and I'm hoping to work on some pages after Christmas (I'm also going to give a try at digi scrapping thanks to some major inspiration from Christie's AMAZING digi pages! - when you go to her blog make sure you scroll down and check them out!).

For my 6x6 page I used Whiskers Sophia. The picture is from Halloween when Annabelle was 2 years old...she's 6 now. Where does the time go?

If you are just starting at my blog, head on over to Christie's blog to start from the beginning. You definitely won't want to miss any of the stops! If you are following the hop, the next stop after my blog is the blog of Prettie Girl Wendy Bond!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you all have a terrific day! We got 15 inches of snow last night with 2-4 more in the forecast for today so I can safely say we will not be going ANYWHERE today! I'm hoping to get the house clean and all of our stuff packed for our trip to Florida!
