It's a HSS Sweetie Blog hop

Welcome to a very Sweetie Christmas Hop! Hope Stamps Eternal Sweeties have a big reveal to share with you today. A few weeks back we were each assigned a secret sweetie who in turn made us gifts and sent them to us to ring in the holidays. During this hop you will see what each of the sweeties put together for their recipient and reveal who they made it for.

Make sure to comment on each blog because one lucky person will be the winner of blog candy! Start at Rachel's blog where you will be able to see a photo of the blog candy and then just follow along to the next blog from there.
The idea for my project from a scrapper on Two Peas In a Bucket...I should have saved the link because her project was amazing!  I ran to Michaels and bought a tin barn star and proceeded to decorate it with Bella Blvd papers.  Some adhesives that work great for a project like this would either be Crafters Glue , Diamond Glaze or Aleene's and Glue Dots are a MUST. I absolutely LOVED working with these papers, the colors and patterns are fresh and fun!  I decorated the center of the star with some misc. things from my stash and the Bella Blvd bits and stickers. 

Here's a look at my project


 
 

My Sweetie was Kelli....I have to apologize to her as I was VERY late in sending my package.  I finished it way ahead of schedule, just could not make it to the Post Office.  I am so sorry Kelli!!!

Next up in the hop is ** Michelle**
