Winterfest Crop 'n Hop!

Hello blog-hoppers! Happy Friday and Welcome to the Birds of a Feather Winterfest Crop 'n Hop! Hopefully, you have been directed here from Linda's blog. If you are just visiting (and weren't directed here from Linda's blog), please join us for the complete Blog Hop and Crop. All you have to do is start Here, hop from blog to blog, and finish up at the Birds of a Feather blog. To make it even more fun, we have a super interesting progressive layout challenge planned for you. IF you complete the entire Hop, you leave a comment on each participant’s blog, you complete the layout challenge AND you get it posted in the gallery by midnight on Sunday, December 16, you will be eligible for a FAB SCRAPS-Christmas Collection: Spiral Bound Book ($20 value)! It's full of gorgeous nostalgic papers for all your Christmas memories.

On to the next step in the progressive layout challenge! You've already finished assembling the basic sketch (found at Kristin's blog), added some stitching (from Nicole's blog), and a mixed alpha or mixed media title (from Linda's blog). Now it's my turn! I'd like for you to add some texture or dimension to your page. If you know me, you know that for me this means glitter! I am a Stickles-junkie and not afraid to say so LOL; I think it adds wonderful texture to a layout. I did manage to keep it to a minimum this time though. And I also popped up my chipboard frame for some extra dimension, and here's a peek at my page:

and here's a little close-up of my texture and dimension:

I used the December Kit for this layout and I am really loving the way it's coming together!

Okay, it's time to hop on over to Ann's blog to continue on with the fun! Remember, if you finish the entire hop, leave a comment on everyone’s blog, you complete the challenge layout (and get it posted in the gallery by the deadline) you are eligible for that darling FAB SCRAPS prize! Enjoy the rest of the crop and I sure hope you will join us over at the forums for a weekend full of scrapping, games and fun!
