Christmas in July Blog Hop--Anything Goes



Welcome to the last of the Cricut Circle Christmas in July Blog Hops.  This weekend anything goes.  How fun!  If you've hopped over from Donna's blog http://carolinascreativecropper.blogspot.com/ then you are right on track.  If you'd like to start at the beginning please visit Paulette's blog http://scrapalette.blogspot.com/ so you don't miss a thing. 

Okay, I've created an advent flip calendar so my kiddos can countdown the days until Christmas :-)  I kept the design pretty simple and to keep the pages from becoming too bulky I didn't use any pop dots.  That was a challenge...LOL!  Enjoy :-)
 


I used a mix of matte, foils, and glitter papers.  Love how it turned out :-)
