Jingle Bells Blog Hop

Welcome to the Sketches4all
Jingle Bells Blog Hop!!

So glad you could join us on the first day of our blog hop!  You will have 9 days to hop around and to complete any and all of the challenges that will be offered by each design team member.  We hope to inspire you this holiday season!  The Hop starts today, December 3rd and ends on December 9th at midnight (PST).  Winners will be announced on December 13th in the Winner's Circle at Sketches4all.  

The Grand Prize winner will receive the glorious November Kit from Frosted Designs!!  Look at all of the gorgeousness!

There will be a second place winner of a $20 gift certificate to the Cutting Cafe!

AND each Design Team member will offer a challenge at Sketches4all some with an individual prize!

So how do you participate??

1.  Hop around to all of the blog's of the design team members.  Follow them and leave a comment.  

Right away that will get your name in the hat to win the second place prize!!  

2.  Join the Design Team's Jingle Bells Blog Hop challenges at Sketches4all.  

These challenges will be posted in the Forum under Special Events.  (HERE)  This will get your name thrown in the hat to win the individual prizes.

3.  And to win the Grand Prize you will need to complete the hop AND find our mystery sentence.  

Each Design team member will have a word hidden on their blog. (mine is MAY)  When you collect all eight words you will have the mystery sentence.  After you find it, you will then just personal message it to FIA at Sketches4all.  
That's it!  Just complete the blog hop and find the mystery sentence and your name will be in the hat to win that awesome kit from Frosted Designs!!!

Here is the order of the hop so you don't get lost along the way:

Giorgia - Guest Designer for December - http://joyblonde.blogspot.it/

***Update***  Rachelle is having problems getting her post up on her blog so if you hop over there and can't get on, just finish up the hop in the Forum at Sketches4all.  We will have her "secret word" on a discussion there.

You will still need to hop over later to leave a comment to qualify to win the Grand Prize and the 2nd place prize.

Here is a layout I have made to help inspire you to participate!  I'm waiting to add a photo from this Christmas.

Please check out my challenge at Sketches4all HERE in the forum.  I hope to inspire you to participate and have your name thrown in the hat to win an individual prize from ME!

And just to be crazy, I am going to give away a prize here on my blog too!!  To qualify to win you just need to:

1.  Follow my blog.
2.  Leave a comment telling me how you are spending your holidays this December.  
3.  Link back to this post from your blog or Facebook.

If you do that then your name will be thrown in the hat to win a $20 gift certificate to A Cherry on Top!!

As you can see there are lots of ways to win on the Jingle Bells Blog Hop!!  WOOT WOOT!

Now it is time to hop on over to see Cheryl.
