Christmas in July blog hop.

Welcome to the Christmas in July Blog Hop on July 27th, from 9 am to 11 pm CST. Thank you for joining me to help me celebrate our Christ's birthday. I love all things about Christmas and start planning Christmas as soon as the Christmas tree comes down. So I decided to host this fun celebration with some of the most talented crafter's that I know.

Lisa has a few rules for her hop, in support of each crafter and the time they have put into their work, to be eligible for the "Grand Prize" you MUST visit each blog and leave a comment for each day of the blog hop and also become a follower of LISA'S BLOG and her DT BLOG . The blog candy is $25 in free files over at LISA'S STORE

If you have started on this blog please go and start at the beginning with LISA. This hop runs all day long, so you have plenty of time to make it all the way through the hop. Check out each blog and see what each blog has to offer for their project! After all it's Christmas in July and who doesn't like Christmas.

 Now for my project, I made a christmas mini album using 4 of Lisa's new files. 
I used the following files to help me create my mini.  Mice * Lights* Present * Snow girl w/reindeer
My album is one from Michaels and I have had it for 3 years. So I used it for my project so I could show you as many files as I possibly could. There are 4 pages and I covered the pages with only 4 sheets of paper. I used stamps and glitter gel pens for the rest . I want to wait to finish this until Christmas because I will need the photos. If you have any questions please feel free to ask me. 
My Christmas Mini:

I am offering some stamped images like I used in my mini . To be eligible please follow my blog and answer on this post "why do people celebrate "Christmas in July?".

Thanks for stopping by and please head over to Edwina's blog and check out what she has created for us.
 Here is the entire line up in case you get lost in the creativity or you just happened to stumble across my post first.

  5. I love your mini album! Soo cute! People celebrate Christmas in July because it's so hot and they want to think of it being cooler and it's the half way mark in the year meaning that much closer to Christmas!
