Jingle Bell Hop!!!!!

Welcome to the Colorful Creations  Jingle Bell Blog Hop!  If you have come here from Rachel's blog then welcome! If you have stumbled across this by chance and want to play along then please go back to Colorful Creations  and start from the beginning.

Jingle Bell Hop

Christmas is my most favorite time of the year.  It is the celebration of Christ’s birth.  It is also the most giving time of the year.  Everyone seems to be in such great moods this time of the year! 

So in celebration of the Christmas season we are hosting a Design Team Blog Hop.  You are to visit each team member’s blog to see the Christmas inspiration they have for you.  There is only one project you are required to do and that is the CC Blog Hop project which requires you to use the color combo below and create a Christmas layout.  You are to use the colors below and create ANY project fitting the criteria given.  It can be a layout, card, mixed media project or altered item.  The sky is the limit!    If you do a layout, your pictures do not have to be Christmas pictures but your papers must!  

Please use at least 3 colors from this combo.  You may use them all.
Once your project is completed, please return to CC upload it to the gallery, tag it JBH2012 and then upload it to this event.

Also as you hop along the way you will find clue words on each of the Design Team member’s blogs.  Once you have gathered all the words they will form a quote related to Christmas.  These words should be BOLDED on each team member's blog!  Tell us that quote is by EMAILING it to me at ourcolorfulcreations@gmail.com for an extra rak of scrap goodies!

The winner of the hop will be randomly selected and will win the beautiful Prima collection below.
(Embellishments will vary)

As always there are rules for playing!

Here are the rules for playing and winning:
1. You MUST be a member of Colorful Creations
2.  You must become a follower of each CC team member’s blog and leave a comment on each blog.

Please make sure you visit the entire team today as some members are hosting additional blog challenges during the hop and offering their own extra goodies for you so the more you play the more chances you win!

I also decided to host my own challenge, to give you guys an EXTRA chance to win some fabulous goodies!!!!!
For my challenge, I would like you to create a project (anything that floats your boat!!!) 
using Christmas themed stamps somewhere on

Here is my example ...I decided on making a Christmas card, since there are soooo many to get done!!! I used several stamps, including "Dear Santa", "Do not open until Christmas", and various flourishes around the card! 

You can use as many, or as few stamps as you like.  As long as I see a Christmas themed stamp, then it's all good :-) 

All entries must be new to Colorful Creations as of December 14th, 2012 and CANNOT be combined with any other entries.  Please upload your entries to the gallery, and tag them BHSTAMP to be eligible for the prize.  You may also upload your entries here, using "Mr Linky" below :-) I will chose one randomly drawn winner at the end of the hop.  

All blog hop entries are due by midnight, CST, December 20th

My secret words for the quote are: be your 

Now hop on over to Libby's blog to see what she has in store for you.  Below is our lineup list in case you get lost along the way.  Have fun and dont forget to search for the clues on each team member's blogs, they will be in BOLD.
