Welcome to the Christmas in July Blog Hop on July 27th, from 9 am to 11 pm CST. Thank you for joining us to help us celebrate our Christ's birthday. I love all things about Christmas and start planning Christmas as soon as the Christmas tree comes down. So Lisa decided to host this fun celebration with some of the most talented crafters that she knows.
She does have a few rules for this hop, in support of each crafter and the time they have put into their work, to be eligible for the "Grand Prize" you MUST visit each blog and leave a comment for each day of the blog hop and also become a follower of Lisa's  blog, Lisa's dt blog at http://scrappingwithlisadesignsdt.blogspot.com/. The blog candy is $25 in free files over at scrappingwithlisadesigns.com.
If you have started on this blog you’re on the right track. This hop runs all day long, so you have plenty of time to make it all the way through the hop. Check out each blog and see what each blog has to offer for their project! After all it's Christmas in July and who doesn't like Christmas.

Now for my project, I made a page layout titled "Have a Mice Christmas!"  I used the Mice File which you can find at http://www.scrappingwithlisadesigns.com/item_425/Mice-Christmas.htm and Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses paper as well as my snowflake punch.  I haven't put pictures on my layout but I intend to put pictures of our cats at Christmas with their little catnip mices they get that they love so dearly.  I had some last minute computer problems so I wasn't able to get to the pictures, but this cute little mouse is adorable enough. 

I am so honored to be a part of Lisa Design Team.  Fridays are my day to post a project using some of the cute files from Lisa.  However due to my computer problems, I was unable to post until later tonight.  So here is my Friday project, also using some adorable Christmas Files.  I used Mr. Claus  and Reindeer.  Here are the links for them:   http://www.scrappingwithlisadesigns.com/item_269/Rudolph-2.htm  and http://www.scrappingwithlisadesigns.com/item_255/Mr-and-Mrs-Claus.htm.  The title of my layout is Reindeers in Training.  I am going to put pictures of our dog and cat with Reindeer Antlers at Christmas.  I used my Silhouette to cut out all the designs from Lisa for the hop and my project.  

Thanks for stopping by and please head over to the next blog at
