This is the blog roll  - do hope you'll hop along!!
 You should have come from Jane and next stop is Nan
but if you have turned up here by chance, do pop back to Terra for the start!!

Terra- Hop Hostess

I think you will soon get the idea of my 12 Days project...I don't imagine this is a new idea!!

I decided to make a fat book...
using 6x6 squares of chipboard.

Today I am going to show you the front cover and page 1!

Each page was covered with papers from Lelli-bot Gothic Grunge collection
and then embellished in various ways.

The front cover uses Smeared Ink's Christmas from Occasions Grumpies
coloured with Promarkers and glitter and distressed with Tim Holtz' tea dye.
I added some glitzy's a first peek:

And a first glimpse of Page One...On the first day of Creepmas my true love sent to me...
A Raven in a Dead Tree!

I used Tim Holtz 'Tree' die to cut the tree and a Sizzix 'Bird' for the Raven.
Instead of 'Caw, Caw' the Raven says 'Eek, Eek'!
This SU 'Eek' stamp I was very pleased to recieve as part of a grab bag prize
 from Shoni Matney in 31DOH!

See you for Day 2!!
Happy Blogging and Hopping!
