Christmas In July Blog Hop -Day 2

 Remember to come back each day and check out what we have for you to look at!

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 crafters that I know.
I do have a few rules for this 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 at "Scrapping With Lisa" and my facebook page:  Please let me know if you don't do facebook and I won't count that against you for the grand prize.  Now for the grand prize, I bet you are wondering what it could be.   It will be a big grab bag full of scrapbooking supplies related to Christmas. 

Have fun and enjoy all the wonderful projects created by some wonderful talented friends.

If you have started on this blog you’re on the right track. If not, and just found this hop, you can go back to the beginning HERE and hop along with us.

This hop runs from July 15-17th, 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 BLOG CANDY!   Please come back tomorrow to see what new projects we have created.  After all it's Christmas in July and who doesn't like Christmas.
