The 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop - Day Eight


Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop. Our blog hostess Lisa is where you should begin the hop if you get lost. Hopefully you've just leaped over from Jillian

I have had so much inspiration from the visitors' comments and have enjoyed reading them each day - thank you so much!!

"The Twelve Days of Christmas" is a cumulative song, meaning that each verse is built on top of the previous verses. There are twelve verses, each describing a gift given by "my true love" on one of the twelve days of Christmas....and so forth, until the last verse:
On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...
12 Drummers Drumming
11 Pipers Piping
10 Lords-a-Leaping
9 Ladies Dancing
8 Maids-a-Milking..............today's project
7 Swans-a-Swimming...see Day Seven's gift box
6 Geese-a-Laying...see Day Six's gift tag
Gold Rings...........see Day Five's gift tag
4 Calling Birds.........see Day Four's pocket card
3 French Hens.......see Day Three's pocket card
2 Turtle Doves.........see Day Two's center step card
And a Partridge in a Pear Tree - see Day One's center step card

First of all, I want to thank Beccy's Place who has an amazing collection of free digis.  She posted a series of the Twelve Days of Christmas vintage images (some time ago and the collection appears to have disappeared online) and that started me thinking of how I could showcase her digi stamps for this hop. She has loads of other amazing images for many occasions.



This is a little photo book I made - I have a machine that will take the cover plus cardstock for inside and set them w/glue for a little book - I can take pics of each project and slip them into the 12 pages inside. The image was outlined with glitter pens and Stickles for glitz and dimension.  My pretty bow is made from LoveBug Creations' new Rumple Ribbon.

This is a closer look at the LoveBug Creations Rumple Ribbon and a few of the maids!

Thank you for stopping by....drop me a comment and become a follower if you've a mind........remember no matter how you piece your paper and rumple your ribbon, have fun with it........cyberhugs.........Mama LoveBug!
Now I'll send you to Rebecca and after her hop over to visit Teresa
