Winter Sparkles!

WooHOO! I'm very excited to be part of Jennifer's Frosty Festivities 2013 Blog Hop - it promises to be a weekend full of fun, inspiration and PRIZES!!!


You probably arrived here via Jennifer Grace Creates - if not, you should pop back there right now and start from the beginning, because if you comment on all the blogs on the hop and then go back and let Jennifer know you've been all the way around, you'll be in with a chance to win this brilliant prize ...

Simple Stories December Documented and Elle's Studio Noel items, worth over £28! 

Jennifer challenged us to create a Christmas or Winter themed project and I know how much she loves a bit of sparkle, so here is my Winter Sparkles Tag Book ...


... and the chance to win this kit to make your own version! I raided my stash and pulled out two identical piles of stuff, one for me and one for the lucky winner, so this includes everything I used to make my book, plus a few extras which I didn't get around to using! I will also die cut your choice of up to four letters or numbers from glitter board to go with the kit - mine says "LOVE" but other ideas are NOEL XMAS BABY STAR 2013 YOU ...


... even if you don't win the prize, you wouldn't need to buy anything especially to make this project - it's a good opportunity to use up some old stash, leftovers and recycled items and turn them into something fabulous!

Here are a couple of close-ups of the inside, just waiting for the photos to go in ...



If you would like to make one of these little books yourself and you need some ideas to get you started, details of what I used, or some tips on making gorgeous embellishments out of scraps - click on the "Winter Sparkles" tab at the top of the page to see how I made mine.

I'm planning to send my tag book to my sister for her birthday in December, filled with pictures of her grandchildren - what will you do with yours? Please use the link tool at the bottom of this post to show-n-tell about your tag book - I'd really love to see what you create.

For a chance to win the tag book kit, leave a comment on this post telling me which four letters or numbers you would like included if you win, then continue following the blog hop, leave a comment on every post and and end up back at Jennifer's for a chance to win the main prize.

Your next stop on the blog hop is Clair - if you get lost along the way, just pop back to Jennifer for a list of all the blogs on the hop.

Most importantly, have fun!!!

Annie :o)xxx

PS I forgot to say - I will be closing the draw and picking the lucky winner at 11pm GMT this evening the 11th November ... EXCITED!!! :o)

This is beautiful!! I think I would choose LOVE, also.

How lovely of you to offer us a kit made from your stash so we can put one of these together ourselves. You did not coerce us into becoming followers to be eligible (which I GREATLY appreciate), but I am a brand-new follower of yours by BlogLovin, nonetheless. Yippee!!!
