CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Happy Fall, ya'll!  I love fall - it is my favorite time of the year, but sadly I do not get to see the leaves change color here in Florida.  That's OK because I have a trip planned to visit my hometown in WNY at the end of October.

If you have been hopping with us, then you know it is the 1st of the month and time for the SOTM Blog Hop.  Over 50 CTMH consultants are participating this month and if you have been hoppin' then you have arrived from Dawn's blog just love her card!

Now that I have been rambling on about FALL - it is actually Christmas we are featuring this month.  The stamp set we are featuring is S1210A Very Merry ChristmasIt includes many useful images and several of them coordinate with the Cricut Artiste cartridge.

My one page layout is from a sketch I found on Pinterest and will coordinate beautifully with the layout that I created for my Make-n-Take for the Krop for Kids event on Saturday.
