MARSHMALLOWS IN MY COCOA {Christmas Blog Hop with CREATE WITH TLC}

 {You are the Marshmallows in my Cocoa}

To kick start the 2016 Christmas creativity in each and every one of my bloggy friends, we are hosting a blog hop starting here at Creating Christmas Treasures with TLC and ending at Paulette's personal blog at Create with TLC.

Every one of the Design Team Members for Create with TLC is hosting a spot on this train ride (blog hop). Each member us sharing a creation they did using at least one if not more of Paulette's elements from years past and the image and/or sentiment they use is available for free download on their site only. So be sure to hop on this lovely festive train ride with us.

Desire (THIS IS ME)

I used this cute pre coloured MY BESTIES girl, all dressed in beautiful traditional colours,
which you can purchase here. 
I have used the fun Marshallow Sentiment from Paulette which you can download here (see below). I have also used the beautiful MERRY CHRISTMAS sentiment image from Paulette.

  The brads and design papers are from my stash. The  flowers have been created with flower punches.  The crochet flower centers has once again been made for me by a special friend. The green folded corners have been created with scallop square punches. I have also used some green stickles for a touch of sparkle around the sentiments and on the flowers.


 Just right click on the sentiment below and save it to your computer:
