Welcome to Best Creations' First Blog Hop!

We have all been on blog hops, but I promise you that this one by Best Creation Inc. will be one of the best in terms of inspiration and in giveaways and prizes!!  So let the Blog Hop commence!!!

This Blog Hop will have you hopping along 13 Design Team Members blogs where they will share with you some inspiration by sharing projects created with Best Creation products AND where they will share with you one letter of the alphabet that when you put them all together will give you a phrase.
One lucky person will win $100 worth of Best Creation products:





A second person will win Best Creation's Valentine collection of papers and stickers:





And I hear tell that if you follow the Best Creation Blog that there will be random drawings for every 10 followers added and the winners will receive a paper collection of their choice!

My project that I want to share with you is my December Daily!  I used the FaLaLa Christmas Line and the Winter Wonderful line for my mini album. For the front and back of my album I used some Teresa Collins Bind it All covers and then cut the Best Creation papers to size.  Best Creation papers are double sided and a perfect thickness to be able to use as pages.  I chose to do 25 days, dedicating two pages to each day, and used the Glitter Cardstock as mats for the 2x3 photos that I will add.  I used some rub ons that I had in my stash from Rusty Pickle for the numerals and then rubbed them onto coordinating papers and made my own epoxys using my Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio 14 Round......perfect!!!  I did some embellishing on the pages adding some fussy cut designs from the Best Creation papers, Best Creation Chipboard and stickers and other trims and flowers from my stash.  I will do additional embellishing as I add the photos daily, things that will be inspired by the photos themselves.  So I will quit talking about it and just share it now........

My December Daily 2010













I know that this mini album will be cherished for many more years  to come by all!!

Now on to the details:  You will be collecting letters of the secret phrase on each of the 13 stops and when you have the phrase you will send that entry to teresa@bestcreation.us . The winners will will be announced on Friday Dec 3rd so good luck and have fun hopping!

You have come from Natalie's blog and will be continuing to Ann-Katerina's blog.  Your letter from my blog is: "i".  Don't forget to leave comments along the way, become a follower of the Best Creation Blog , and comment on the Best Creation Blog.  If you enter the blog hop in the middle you can always go to the Best Creation Blog for a complete list of all the stops in order.

Good luck and thanks for visiting!!!!
