25 Days of Christmas, day one~

For the 25 days of Christmas blog hop we will be posting a Christmas themed challenge everyday from December 1st to December 25th. Challenges will range from things such as create a Christmas card, make a homemade gift, stocking stuffers, ornaments, favorite recipe, etc. Throughout the challenges we here at Scrappykins will be doing random prize drawings for people who participate in the challenge that day as well as a grand prize drawing to be announced in the next few days. For every challenge you complete, you get an entry into the grand prize drawing. So, if you complete all 25 challenges your name will be entered into the grand prize drawing 25 times.

I will be participating through out the month so make sure you stop by each day to see what the group has come up with.  You will want to click the link above and book mark it to check each day.

I can not believe it's December 1st already! It just doesn't seem possible!

I am really excited once again for Christmas, having a small child brings all the magic back into things.
 This is the first year that Emily has wanted to sit on Santa's lap.  She has actually sat on his lap twice and is so very proud of herself for talking to him.

I started to make a brand new~never seen here before~ card for today but changed my mind and wanted to share these again.  These are by far my favorites I've made in a long time.
I love the little gifts that pop out when you open the card, so fun!

 I love hot chocolate, so that's part of why this is in my top favorites, but the possibilities with this one are pretty broad as well.  All of the different papers, and you can add a gift card along with some gourmet hot chocolate and you've got a card and gift! check that one off your list ;)

Here is the entire line up for today, make sure you don't miss anyone, you never know if you will get picked for a prize!
