Christmas in July Blog Hop

Welcome to the "Christmas in July" Blog Hop hosted by Jazzy from Jazzy's Cards. If you are coming from Nadia's then you are in the right place, but if you are just checking on my blog and stumbled across this, go start at Jazzy's. This is Jazzy's first time hosting a hop, and I know she would appreciate the love. And THANK YOU Jazzy for sponsoring this hop!

The theme for the hop was something Christmas related that included the colors green and red. A friend is going to have a baby in October. So I made this layout for their son's first Christmas.


Paper: Pixies Paper Playground & Tear Bear Connection (Mulberry Paper) Other Paper is scraps and stash, Velvet Paper Scraps

Tear Bear Patterns: Pixies Paper Playground & Tear Bear Connection 

Embellishments: Buttons, Hero Arts Pearls, Bell, Sticker Stash,
 Thread, Michael's Ribbon

Now for my blog candy. Santa left me a toy bag just made for a good little papercrafter.  I peeked inside and this is what I found:
