December 2013 Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

I hope your Christmas celebration was as much fun as ours.  Our 4 year old grandson was a hoot as he literally danced and clapped at the sight of all the presents.  You need to know that his mother's birthday is today in order to understand his quote from yesterday: "Momma, after your birthday tomorrow, let's turn back the page and have Christmas again!" So much fun!!!

I was delighted to see that the challenge was all about string since I had gone the route of  Kraft, Burlap, and Twine for my gift wrapping this Christmas.  Here are a couple of samples:

This one is my favorite!  Minimizing the bow and emphasizing the tag was a fun twist.  I'm sorry that I didn't get pictures of the glittered monogram tags : (

Happy hopping and thanks for stopping by!
