Welcome to the Frosted Designs Winter Blog Hop!! You should have arrived here from My Little Scrap Corner, the Blog of the very talented, Jenny Evans. If you did not, please go back to Frosted Designs and start at the beginning. There are two ways to win prizes (which I will mention a little later), so you will definitely want to visit all of the Blogs along the way!!
I know some of us have experienced a mild Winter so far this year, and some of our Northern friends have been in a Winter wonderland with all of the falling snow!! But we can still all enjoy this time of year, whether we are experiencing below zero temperatures or whether we are in the 70's, by creating some Winter themed layouts or projects! Because my family lives so far South, snow is a rarity around here. Sometimes our temperatures drop down into the teens at night and we have daytime lows in the 30's...but this is also rare. With all of that said, I had to get a little creative in creating a layout that centered around the theme of our Blog Hop, which is Winter. Fortunately, our Bass Pro Shop sets up Santa's Winter Wonderland every year and I got some cute pictures of my son checking out the place!!
Not only is this layout for the Winter Blog Hop, it is also for our 1.20.12 Fabulous Friday challenge, which is to use Vellum/Transparency. I had a Fancy Pants Designs 12x12 transparency in my stash, that has been there forever. I thought it went along great with the Echo Park Times & Seasons collection, so I fussy cut some of the flourishes and added them to my page. The Fabulous Friday challenge will continue on it's normal schedule. You will have until Noon on Thursday, January 26, to upload your project or layout.
Now onto the Prize giveaways!!
The Hop will take place from today, January 20 through Sunday, January 22, at midnight. You have two chances to win the Grand Prize from Frosted Designs:
1. There will be a word/words at each Blog, that you will put together, and at the end of the last Blog, you need to email the whole phrase to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight Sunday. (Subject Line should say "Blog Hop")
The word from my Blog is MAKES.
2. Link your LO to the Frosted Design Blog by Midnight Sunday
You also have the chance to win a little prize package from my Blog also. If you are already a Follower, leave me a comment telling me your favorite thing about Winter. If you are not a Follower, start following my Blog and leave me a comment letting me know. I will randomly select a winner and post it on Monday morning, so make sure to check back and see if you are the lucky one!! (I will mail prizes to US residents only).
I hope you have enjoyed my layout today and that you have been inspired by the Ladies you have already visited!! Now, it's off to your next stop Sunnys Basteloase, to see what the talented Marina has in store for you!!
