No, not really! If it was that "IT'S CHRISTMAS" statement would be followed by me running and hiding! I haven't even STARTED any Christmas prep yet! So, don't's not Christmas. It IS the {ippity}Christmas in October Blog Hop though!!!

So, if you are coming from Sarah's blog then you are on the right track. If you want to start from the beginning you can go over to Heathers blog. There is also a list at the end of this post in case you get lost!

For this hop I decided to get out 'ol faithful...the "Season of Joy" set. I LOVE this set! just take a look.

And here is my project...I apologise for the photo...the lighting here at the time was HORRIBLE! I will take another one as soon as I can and update the post.

This is one of those wooden frames from Michael's. I painted it white, then Modge Podged some designer paper to the front. I didn't worry about having it perfectly cut to size. This was because I wanted to sand the edges anyway, so the paper was "cut" by that. I like the whole distress look! Then I added a little white ribbon bow to the upper left corner and the two stamps from the "Season of Joy" set...and of course I heat embossed it! I can't wait to get a picture of the boys to put in it when Christmas gets here! Hopefully I will be ready for the holiday then!

Well, that's it...almost! I have a little blog candy to give away! I will send a few random ippity stamps to one lucky person who comments on my blog! I will pick a name through the random generator who is my 4-year-old (his birthday is today!!! Happy Birthday Nicholas!!) and my DH's hat! Check back tomorrow for the winner.

Your next stop is Maria who, I am positive, will have an awesome project to show you! Don't forget to leave a comment to be entered to win my blog candy.
