The Joyeaux Noel main kit and add on are absolutely gorgeous! Wish all of it was on it's way to my house! After open heart surgery and two emergency surgeries on my hand because of an accident I can't afford the luxury of things like this this year! :-( Maybe next year I will be able to start subscribing! Would love to be one of the lucky winners of any of these luscious prizes! Thanks to this hop I have met some uber-talented crafters! I am now following everyone on the hop wither blog, Pinterest or both so I don't miss any of the creations they share! So glad that I came along on this crafty and VERY inspirational blog hop!!
The special words created this sentence: Life does not have to be perfect to be beautiful". This is so true! Even though it has been the year from Hades there have been so many special moments that they make up for the bad! I am a firm believer in positive thinking! I beat cancer three times so far and I credit positive thinking with being able to come out the other end of the cancer tunnel alive and thankful for all I have!
Thanks for letting me tag along on this journey! Merry Christmas!

I had a great time seeing all the different layouts and projects. It is fun to see the variety and it really gives me some inspiration. It was a great idea to do this right before Christmas just to see all the different Christmas things you can do on you own and to have an opportunity to win a gift for yourself or a loved one. The sentence was - Life does not have to be perfect to be beautiful. Great sentence especially this time of year when there is so much stress:) Great message and thanks for the fun.
