Blog Hop- December

Here it comes, the Christmas season! I always want to make tags and wrap, or just embellishments to put on the tops of the presents; and that was the challenge from Papertrey this month! Alas, I have no such thing to show you- so I am bending the rules a little.

Evey year I give the daughter's a list book, and a wee bit of cash to spend. You can last years 'book' here . This year I saw these cute little journals at the dollar spot in Michael's...knew I'd be short on time... and look how cute they became with just an hour or so of playing!!




Papertrey Pure Poppy and New Leaf matched the colors perfectly. The rub-ons are from SU, the snowflakes are rub-ons, too. Obviously there are quite a few ribbons, lol, but Ripe Avocado, Pure Poppy and New Leaf are there! Can you see the Christmas Tree pen stuck in the binding coils? I was lucky it fits in there just perfectly- and you should feel jealous because when you go to write with the pen, well, golly, the tree lights up!!! lol lol lol

I couldn't fit all the photos on one post, so scroll down to the post below-
