Papertrey Ink November Blog Hop!

Hello Everyone!

I feel like it has been so long since I have posted on my blog--with school and children's activities, we have been so busy! Thank goodness for schools giving the kids a holiday the day before Thanksgiving, so we could participate in the blog hop this month! This month's challenge was to create an easy tag or gift wrap to get ready for the holidays.

Chris's Gift Wrap

Every year for Christmas I make several card sets as Christmas gifts for family members. I have started packaging them in the stamp boxes, and this year I was trying for glitter and sparkle for the box wrap. (My theme this year for my cards inside was polka dots, and every card uses a different image and sentiment from Everyday Classics. I will post the cards after Christmas, just in case Mom decides to read my blog . . . . )

My Younger Daughter J's Gift Wrap
My younger daughter decided to make her own cards for Grandma as well. She went for a cupcake theme inside, and this is the wrap she created for her card box.
