The Character Cafe Blog Hop – “Christmas Eve”


As you may know, I was on the very first EVER term for The Character Cafe Design Team.  All of the DT members were given the option of staying on board for another term.  Some decided to stay, while others decided not to.  I chose to stay for the next term, which is 6 months.  We have a GREAT team again this term, so please make sure and visit all of our DT members blogs to show them some support!  If you like what you see on the DT members’ blogs, you might want to add them to your Google Reader so you can follow along with what they’re up to! 

Now…on with the blog hop!  You should have linked here from Donna.  If not, please go back to The Character Cafe Design Team Page and begin again.  You don’t want to miss out on anything!

The details for my project, which is a calendar page…in case you can’t tell!  ;o)

And finally…an up-close look at Christmas Eve!  I used the Spica pen on her earrings, but it doesn’t show in the photos.  Boo hoo!  I *so* need a photography class!!!  ha!
