Christmas in July

It's here - our Christmas in July blog hop! Grab your hats and mittens and hop aboard the sleigh as we take a ride through some Christmas workshops!

To get you in the mood, I've got a trio of Christmas trees! They're cardboard cones that have been transformed into a magical Christmas display! Pastes, paper, glitter, distressing - a great way to use scraps!

Before you fly away to the next stop, how about a little giveaway?! It'll be a surprise from Santa for 2 PEOPLE!  All you have to do is leave a comment with a way to contact you (social media link, email, etc).  FOLLOWERS WHO LEAVE A COMMENT WILL GET 2 ENTRIES!!  I'll leave comments open until 18 July!

Now on to your next stop!
