Lawnscaping Winter Blog Hop 2013


Welcome to the Lawnscaping Winter Blog Hop! I'm very excited to be participating in this hop :) As you can see from the image above, the theme for the hop is WINTER!! What better timing, right? For my project, I chose to make a Christmas banner for my china cabinet. I had purchased this simple banner kit this past fall on clearance (under $4!) so I couldn't wait to get started with decorating it. 

First, here are the details for this fun filled hop. There will be LOTS of prizes. The specific information about the sponsors and prizes can be found by visiting the Lawnscaping home page. Leave comments on every blog that is participating in the hop for your chance to win. You can leave comments up until Sunday, December 15 at 11:59pm EST. 

You should have arrived from Taylor Usry's blog. Next, you will want to move on to Karin and continue hopping!!! Good luck and enjoy the winter blog hop from Lawnscaping.

And now on to my project...

Here is the banner I created for the winter themed project and then close ups of each pennant to show you the details I used. I have listed the products I used below (some items are from my stash so I don't have those!). Thanks for stopping by and enjoy hopping along!!! Thanks for visiting.
