Merry and Bright Blog Hop!

Happy December!!!!  Whatever this month means for you and yours, this hop is full of MERRY and filled with BRIGHT!  You can just keep clicking the links at the bottom of our posts to go see the next creation.  All the links are also posted down below in case you get lost.

My MERRY this month has a LOT to do with my Cubbies winning the World Series!  I've finally begun to create a memory book to commemorate every CHEER and each FABULOUS moment along the way!  I've been saving pics on my phone during the entire playoffs and I'm excited to put the story together and relive each moment.  I plugged the pics into the Pic Collage app on my phone and printed them off on my Canon Selphy. 

Most of the products I used are included in the Blue Jean Mimi Album Bundle available in December at 30% off from Close to My Heart.  The enormity of this historic moment can truly be summed up by this adorable illustration I found...

Yes, I have lived to see the Bears, Bulls, Sox, Blackhawks, and CUBS ALL win championships!!!  :)
I used some embellishments from the Blue Dots and Swan Lake Compliments to bling it up a bit more (also on the cover of the album)...

This 2x2 Flip Flap adds an interactive and FUN aspect to re-living your memories.  I am also going to do a bit more journaling on these places to document the actual events and dates...

How PERFECT are these gold foil hearts for this page?!?!?  These overlays fit right in the 4x4 and 2x2 pocket pages that go with the Instalife Albums.

 I LOVE how it all came it was meant to be...just like THIS YEAR!!!!  :)

You MUST stay tuned as I share more of the pages of this MERRY and BRIGHT memory of mine in the weeks to come!  Until then, I hope you enjoy the rest of our little MERRY and BRIGHT hop!  You are off to see what MERRY craftiness Stephanie has for you today!

Here is the entire hop line-up!  (short but MERRY!)

  1. I love this! Those overlays are so perfect for your layout. ❤️

  2. I was about to say, "But there's no GLITTER!" when I saw your touches of shimmer and shine. So much fun to "watch" the games with you, particularly game seven. My heart was pounding. I can't even imagine how fast yours was beating!

    1. It was brutal after the lead was gone. I ain't gonna lie. There were all kinds of emotions going on in here. What a rollercoaster!!!!


Thank you for adding some sparkle to my day with your comments!
