Holiday Hop-Along with My Time Made Easy!

Today is release day at My Time Made Easy and you will see all the new templates (4 of them!) that are being released today along with new cut files, digital images, and digital paper.  And the best thing is that you can purchase, download, and start crafting with all the new goodies today!  We are having a Holiday Hop-Along, so make sure you hop to each of the DT's blogs to get some inspiration!

I am using the new Sleigh Ride template today.  This one is a stunner and super easy to put together (really!)!  I cut the base and sides of the template in Real Red cardstock.  The rails (aren't they fabulous?) and trim were cut from Brushed Gold cardstock. 
I googled sleighs and found one that was decorated with some brocade trim.  I found I had some pretty ribbon in red and gold in my ribbon box and trimmed out the bottom of the sleigh.  Then, of course, I had to add sleigh bells!  "Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?"  Now I'm going to be singing that song all day!  I strung them on some sheer gold ribbon and hot glued them to the side of the sleigh.  I covered up the glue with some bows. 
The inside of the sleigh is where the real gift is!  I have a jewelry box decorated with gold ribbon and a velvet bag (from some piece of jewelry I purchased before) which contains some Reese's peanut butter cups (they were gold and matched my sleigh!).  What a cute presentation, huh? 

Now you can hop along on to the other DT blogs to see their creations.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope to see you back tomorrow with more of the MTME release!
