All Things Altered Winter Blog Hop (with prizes!)

 
Hi everyone!
 
Welcome to the All Things Altered Winter Blog Hop!
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, surrounded by friends and family! After all of that hard work cooking and cleaning, you deserve to take a little break and hop along with us!
 
If you are here from Candice's wonderful blog, you are in the right place. If you just happened on to my blog, head on back to Pam's blog, Scrapbook Flair. That's where it all starts. You don't want to miss a single project or opportunity to win some fun prizes!
 
My project is very simple, but don't we all need simple this time of year? If you are like me, you are in the hyper-holiday mode and it just seems so hard to get my "to do" list whittled down.
 
I decided to alter a little 5 1/2" by 4 1/4" spiral notebook.
 
 
I used My Mind's Eye - Signature Christmas Holiday Glitter Book to cover the front and create the die cuts. The dies are Spellbinder's #S5-121 Frosty Forms set. I blinged it up with White and LeCreme Half Pearls from Want2Scrap, and assorted ribbons and lace from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
 
I thought I would give a gift to one of my wonderful followers since it has been awhile and I love sending happy mail.
 
How about the notebook that I created for this hop and some bling from my favorite bling shop....Want2Scrap?  :)
 
 
Just follow my blog (if you don't already) and leave a comment below. My followers area is at the top of my blog, just under my photo.
 
I will draw the lucky winner on Sunday November 25th.
 
Your last stop on the hop is at sweet Pinky's blog. Bet she has something really cool to share with you!
 
Thanks so much for hopping by! :)

This is lovely! I love when the die cuts are made with the same line of paper - it looks so cohesive! Maybe it was simple to make, but it looks great!
