2)Leave a comment on each blog showing that you have picked up your letter from their sneak.

3)Collect all the letters and unscramble the word.

Here's the first sneak:

So now you need to head to Stephanie Wheeler's blog... she's up next on this hop! :)

also... be sure to join us on the boards for this:
While I have you here... thought I'd share the layout I did for the current Noel Mignon Challenge we have going on right now...
We were given this Color Combo (which goes VERY well with the new Very Virginia kit!)
and here is my layout based on those colors, everything from the Noel Mignon Very Virginia kit!!

and a close up....
Notice the tag behind my title... that is what the ribbon came on from our kit, I just trimmed it up a bit... look at me all being recycle-y like! :)

Thanks for stopping by!!
Good luck with the blog hop!! :) This is one kit I seriously can't wait to get ahold of and play with... I have so many pictures of the kids that I can't wait to use with this kit!! :)

I laugh at you Comfort Zone!!

Ha! Ha! Ha!

Yep... that's me!
I have a confession to make... I have NEVER played with the every so popular Mist that I see all over the place on layouts.
well my Noel Mignon Very Virginia kit came and I found myself staring at the Maya Road Mist and masking tape (and the rest of the kit too.. hehe.. this is the stuff that stumped me though)... and I thought
"I know I'm supposed to come up with something super creative with this stuff... but what?"

Well I'm not sure how super creative it is... but I made a border with the masking tape and misted the whole darn page and then pulled my tape up... love the frame it left! This layout pushed me out of my comfort zone in many ways though... see the stamps? Yeah I didn't really overthink them and just stamped away without a real plan (SO not my style) and stamped down under my title a bit and then again on and around the chipboard heart. .... I have to say I really LOVE the results... not my usual style I agree... but it's ok to step out of the zone and just create sometimes!
