Holiday Blog Hop

Photobucket

Welcome to the First Annual Scrap-Mart.com Blog Hop!
If you are just joining in, please go to the Scrap-Mart blog to start from the beginning. :)
Here you go----
I made a quick little gift box (perfect for holding those special gifts) and a free standing tree. The tree could easily be used for decoration or, if you punch a little hole in the top and add some string, you could hang it on a tree. :)
I used UNITY-of course!
Scrap-Mart has a a TON of UNITY > HERE <>

There are 31 blogs participating in the hop and you will find some great prizes along the way.
You must comment on THAT blog post to be eligible to win that prize.
There are also some Grand Prizes posted on the Scrap-Mart blog.
You must comment on EVERY blog throughout the hop to be eligible for the Grand Prizes. Comments will remain open until midnight CST on Sunday, December 5th.
Winners will be chosen at random for each individual prize and will be announced on the Scrap-Mart blog on Friday, December 10th.
You may only win once.

We'd like to thank our sponsors for generously donating all the prizes for this hop: Making Memories, Spellbinders, JustRite Stampers, Sizzix, Heartfelt Creations, Lifestyle Crafts, The Stamps of Life, Boss Kut, Unity Stamps, October Afternoon, Copic, Silhouette America.

Now HOP ON OVER to the TALENTED.........
