Up on the Rooftop Blog Hop



Welcome to the UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! Up On The Roof Top 2011 World Showcase Holiday Blog Hop.
If you have been following the Blog Hop from the beginning, you have just checked out Monika's fun Counting Down to Christmas card set.  Monika's project is a blast and I can't wait to involve my kiddos in the activities!  If you are just joining the Blog Hop, no problem, as you can start at any point. All the Designer's Blogs are linked together so you will be able to see ALL the FABULOUS projects we have for you.
My project is a Love and Joy Stocking banner. As soon as I saw the Stocking Builder Punch and coordinating Holiday Stocking Bigz die in the Holiday Mini catalog I knew that I needed to make a banner using them both.


Each stocking is unique just like the stockings our family has, each unique to its owner.  The letters sparkle right off of the stocking in person as they are coated with a few layers of Dazzling Details glitter glue.  Of course all things at Christmas need to be tied up with pretty bows, so each stocking is hung with care by a bow. 

 The ends of the banner are anchored with a shimmery snowflake poinsettia.  


 As a Special Thank You for stopping by my blog I am giving away BLOG CANDY!!
