Make it Merry Blog Hop


Thank you for visiting my blog! My name is Janelle and I live in Iowa (right near the South Dakota and Minnesota borders). I have two little girls ages 2 and 4 and my husband is a middle school band and art teacher and I'm a stay-at-home-mom! I love to scrapbook but my weakness is scrapp'n the holidays- so I'm so happy to have completed this special project! Oh, and I'm terrible at journaling so I hid it along the border! ☺


I wanted to use some new techniques I've seen lately like the paper pleating and the ruffle ribbon (thanks Georgana!) and I really enjoyed myself. Plus, I just had to use the glitter glue from one of the recent BWS kits- love those kits!! ♥♥ If you are just joining the blog hop click here to start from the beginning! I love the red snowflake paper and with my little girls I just had to add some flowers and some bling!

Thank you so much for Hopping by and Make it Merry! ♥ Your next stop on the hop is

I loved the paper you chose. When we released it there was nothing on the market with that fun soft look. Adding your photo's to be about love is so perfect. Your touches are inspiring. Thanks for sharing.
