Pinkalicious Blog Hop

Hi Everybody and thank you so much for joining us for November's Pinkalicious Blog Hop!  If you're arriving here from my friend June's blog, then you are in the right spot! And in case you just happened to stop by today and would like to see what the entire design team has created, you can start here .

Our challenge was to make a scrapbook page or mini album using the Cricut and one of Robyn's new stamp sets.   I chose to use both the new My Pink Stamper Itty Bitty-licious and the More Fabulous Phrases sets.  Both can be purchased here
 
On to my project.  I hope you like it! :)

(Click on any picture for a larger image)

This picture is of me.  If I looked scared in this picture, it's because I probably was.  As a child, I was absolutely terrified of Santa!  My brother was too.

It's a little hard to tell from the picture, but I chalked around each of the Christmas lights.


And finally, the letter to Santa.  I thought it would make the layout more special if the child could sign his/her own name.  (haven't added one yet to this layout).


The phrase was a little long for my Cricut cut, so I inked half of the sentiment, stamped it.  Then stamped the other half.  Worked perfectly!
 RECIPE
My Pink Stamper Christmas Wishes ("Dear Santa")
My Pink Stamper More Fabulous Phrases ("Thinking of you makes me smile.")
My Pink Stamper Itty Bitty-licious ("With Love")
Winter Frolic Cricut cartridge (tree cut at 5")
Calligraphy Collection Cricut cartridge (letter cut at 4 1/2")
Christmas Cheer Cricut cartridge (lights cut at 1 1/2")
Martha Stewart Border Punch
Stickles
Bic Mark Its
Pebbles, inc. Chalk
Versafine ink pad (Onyx Black)
EK Success Paper Shaper punch (heart)
Background paper by Adorn It -Carolee's Creations (from the Happy Holidays Collection - "Santa's Coat")
Pop Dots

Now head on over to my friend Helen's blog to see what prettiness she has created!  And please, if you can find the time, we'd love it if you would go back to the beginning and play along with us!  Thanks so much for stopping by! :)

I like all the extra details you added to the layout. Fine details are always the key:) The chalking ... just adds so much to the overall layout!!! Fabulous!!! My brother will be leaving for Georgia this weekend. He will be stationed at Kings Bay. He is in the Navy. You will be much closer to him than I will.
