All About Red Blog Hop ...

WELCOME to the Lawnscaping Challenge Blog Hop "All About RED".  This is the SECOND Blog Hop hosted by Lawnscaping Challenge Blog, and I'm so happy you could join us for this awesome event.  We are featuring the adorable Lawn Fawn Stamps and the color RED!

You should have arrived at my blog from Isha's New Ideas Blog. If you are just joining us, or get lost along the way, hop on over to the Lawnscaping Challenge Blog for a complete list of the participants.

I created a Christmas Milk Carton Box for your enjoyment.  I can't take credit for the design of this cute box.  I found the instructions over at Splitcoast Stampers, and the tutorial was created by Beate Johns. My Milk Carton showcases the lovely Critters in the Snow stamp set.
Here is a side view so you can see the igloo I stamped on the cardstock prior to putting together the milk carton.
Here is a picture of the Milk Carton on it's side with the candy treats spilling out.

The hop runs from Friday, December 9th at 12:01 AM EST, and runs thru Sunday, December 11th at 11:59 PM EST.

The Blog Hop is being sponsored by these amazing companies ... Lawn Fawn, Mold Muse, and Whisker Graphics.  They are providing the PRIZES for the Blog Hop for one random participant and THREE, that right THREE, random commenter's! Prize details can be found on the Lawnscaping Challenge Blog.

Not only will you be inspired by all the lovely projects, you will have lots of chances to win!

After leaving your comment head on over to Pia Overgaard Design for some more inspiration.

Thank you for joining us today!
