Make Your Own Holiday Blog Hop- March 26 & 27

Hi Everyone

Welcome to the Make Your Own Holiday Blog Hop! The hop will be running from March 26 12:00 am to March 27th 11:59pm est. So you have all weekend to hop along with us. If you are arriving from the very talented  Jen at Young’s Scrapping then you are in the right place. If not you can start the hop

over at the lovely Karelj at One By One The Flamingos Are Stealing My Sanity .  Karelj is offering an over-all blog candy for those who are hopping along with us. She thought it would be fun to have some holiday-themed candy for this hop--but, of course, made-up holiday items were hard to come by! She decided to do a whole bunch of *regular* holiday themed stamps for you to enjoy. From Fiskars, there is an assorted holiday set; there's an alphabet from All Night Media, a set of 100 plus clear stamps and a storage case from Family Memories, and 5 sets of clear stamps from various dollar bins in big box stores. How to win them? Follow along the blog trail, leaving a comment on each and every blog. On Monday, Karelj will ask her  buddy Randy (random.org) to select a blog number (from the list), a day (Saturday is one, Sunday is two), and a comment number from that blog. Please make sure you have left a reliable way to contact you (email is best, in the safe format of **** at **** dot com ) so you can be notified by her personally. If you don't, she’ll have to select another winner

Ok let's get on to the hop. I thought this was an awesome idea. If you had to make a holiday what would you pick and why. Well, of course I came up with Scrapping Again it will be on every March 26 from now on for me. This is a day where a whole day is set aside for crafting! YEA! My favorite thing! This year I got lucky and it is on a Saturday but when it falls on a weekday, I might just have to play hookie from work-- LOL! We will see how that works out! HAHA. So for this hop, I made this cute Spring banner for my girlfriends birthday.

These are the close ups of the banner, you will have to excuse my messing craft shelf behind it.
I used Whimsy DCWV stack and glitter paper from DCWV for the letters.

I used Storybook for the letters and Accent Essentials for the flowers, and the banner cuts were from Birthday Bash.
Thank you for coming by today, your next stop on the hop is the very talented Jamie at Glitter, Paper, Stamps, Oh My!

Oh yeah, I almost forget the great blog candy I am giving away! Leave a comment and become a follower to be entered to win. I have a brand new Creative Memories Album. It is the Original 12 x12 album and I have a couple different ones you can choose from. Sorry but for shipping reasons this blog candy is only open to US residents.

And is is a complete list in case you get lost along the way.
