Make Up Your Own Holiday Hop Winner and Guest Designer Day

Thanks to everyone who participated in the "Make Up Your Own Holiday" Blog Hop. My son had an excellent 2nd Birthday. We had so much fun with our family and friends. I just wanted to share this photo of my son in the t-shirt that was shown in my post for the hop.

That's my little man. He has his picture taken so often that he has perfected his "cheese" smile.

Now, on to the winner......

I used to choose the winner from the hop and #14 was selected

"Make Up Your Own Holiday" Blog Hop

Welcome to the "Make Up Your Own Holiday" Blog Hop. If you just came from Just Yolie, Just Create, then you are on the right track! If you have just stopped in for a visit and want to join in on the hop from the beginning start with One by One the Flamingos are Stealing my Sanity.

“Karelj is offering an over-all blog candy for those who are hopping along with us. She thought it would be fun to have some holiday-themed candy for this hop--but, of course, made-up holiday items were hard to come by! She decided to do a whole bunch of *regular* holiday themed stamps for you to enjoy. From Fiskars, there is an assorted holiday set; there's an alphabet from All Night Media, a set of 100 plus clear stamps and a storage case from Family Memories, and 5 sets of clear stamps from various dollar bins in big box stores. How to win them? Follow along the blog trail, leaving a comment on each and every blog. On Monday, Karelj will ask her buddy Randy ( to select a blog number (from the list), a day (Saturday is one, Sunday is two), and a comment number from that blog. Please make sure you have left a reliable way to contact you (email is best, in the safe format of **** at **** dot com ) so you can be notified by her personally. If you don't, she’ll have to select another winner.”
My made up holiday is......"CONGER UP SOMETHIN' CAMO" DAY. I have been working on some decorations for my son's 2nd birthday. Our theme is going to be camoflauge. This was totally my hubby's idea!

 I used my "Alpha Banner" Kit to make a high chair banner. You can check it out HERE.

 I bought some cheap balloon weights at our local dollar store for $1 each. I removed the foil from them and covered them with camo wrapping paper, tied with ribbon, and placed a cupcake topper in each.

 I created these cupcake toppers using basic shapes in MTC.  Soooo easy!

I found this little T-shirt for $4 at a local military shop. I used some iron-on vinyl from Print On It and cut this design. I love this little T and can't wait to see my son in it. You should visit Print On It and check out their cool vinyl.
Hope you are enjoying my camo chaos! I have been working hard to get everything ready and I am finally done!
Now, on to some sweet stuff for all you MTC and SCAL users out there....
I will be giving away YOUR CHOICE of one of my SVG kits from Short 'N Scrappy Designs. To win, simply become a follower and leave a comment letting me know which item from my shop you would like. IF YOU DO NOT LIST WHICH ITEM YOU WANT ALONG WITH YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS, I WILL CHOOSE ANOTHER WINNER. The reason I will choose another winner is that not everyone is interested in SVG files and these files are the only item up for grabs from me today. Even if your not interested in the files, don't forget to leave a comment to be eligable for Karelj's candy!!
I am also having a "Thank You" Giveaway for all my followers! To enter in this giveaway click HERE.

So yesterday evening I received my goodies from Jamie over at Glitter, Stamps and Paper, Oh My.

Aren't these some awesome goodies!! Just wanted to thank Jamie for this awesome prize!! Please visit Glitter, Stamps and Paper, Oh My for some great inspiration and check out her amazing projects as well!!

About a week ago I received a free sample of some iron-on vinyl from Print On It. I received the "Cut Color Wear" vinyl. You can cut your own design, color with markers, and iron it on. How cool it that. I didn't color mine because I wanted it to be white. Check out the T-Shirt I just made for my son's birthday!

I love this stuff!! They even have vinyl you can print on with your inkjet printer and iron on. I will definately purchase this product in the near future!! Pay them a visit and check out all the cool vinyl!!

Tomorrow is the first day of the "Make Up Your Own Holiday" Blog Hop. Please come back tomorrow and Sunday and hop with us. There is an amazing group of talented ladies joining in so you definately don't want to miss this one!!

Votes Needed Please!!!

I have submitted a card for Karel's March Challenge at One by One the Flamingos are Stealing My Sanity. The challenge is to make up your own holiday and create a project incorporating the theme of your holiday. So, I decided to do Peanut Butter Day. My family loves a good PB & J and I had a card in mind for a special little peanut, so this is what I came up with....

Please head over to One by One the Flamingos are Stealing my Sanity and vote for my Peanut Butter and Jelly Day!!!!

This hinge card was easy to make. I created the svg file for the card myself with a special little one in mind and I am very pleased with the way it came out.  For all the other little peanuts out can download this svg file and make this card for yourself for free below.

To download this free file click the following link: PEANUTHINGECARD

The download includes the SVG and MTC files as well as instuctions in PNG format.

Cutie Patootie Blog Hop

Welcome to the "CUTIE PATOOTIE" Blog Hop. If you are here from Thienly's Blog: Mod Paperie then you are on the right track. If you have just popped in for a visit and would like to join the hop from the beginning, please start with Yolie's Blog: Just Yolie, Just Create.

Now on to the cuteness!!
Our projects were to be something super cute. And there is nothing cuter than a bitty baby...right? I need to catch up on scrapbooking some layouts for my son's baby book, so I took this opportunity to create some cuteness for him!!! Hope I have done that.

First I created my own svg files and then designed my scrapbook layout...wanna see it what it looked like before I cut it..... here is goes:

So far, so cute....right? Well just add a couple of pics of a sweet little 3 week old baby boy and the cuteness just goes through the roof.

I love this layout and these pictures really do not do it justice!! What do you think??? Cute enough?

Ok, now on to some cute crafty candy.....In honor of my new ETSY and this Hop, I will be giving away all the svg files I have created for this layout to one lucky cutter. They all cut really well. I did draw the eyes and mouth on the bear simply because it was easier than stamping or gluing small ones on. Now all you have to do is become a follower, if you aren't already, and leave a comment on this post INCLUDING a way to contact you. If there is no point of contact listed along with your comment, I will go back to and choose another winner.  Easy enough.
I do give free files away occasionally but I WILL NOT be giving this one out as a freebie. It is for sale in my Etsy shop. Just click the little "My Shop" tab at the top of my blog to view the items I've added so far.

Hope you are all enjoying every one's cute projects but now you need to get hoppin...Your next stop is Angie's Blog: Scrappin' Memories.

Here is the lineup just in case you need a little help along the way.

Patricia, - YOU ARE HERE!!
