Welcome to the Michelle Perkett Studio "Holiday Magic" Blog Hop! Merry Christmas everyone!

Can you believe that Christmas is just a week away?!? I want to thank all of you who participated in our hop this weekend and thank you for all of you who are hopping along! We have lots of fun planned for you!!

Our theme is of course Holiday Magic and our blog hop participants were to use their favorite Michelle Perkett Studio holiday image and make a magical creation with it, which is always my favorite thing about our hops!:)
Also, we asked everyone to share what is magical to them about the holidays. if they have a favorite holiday magic memory or maybe they find magic in the eyes of your children or their holiday traditions or their family and friendships? Do they find magic in volunteering to help those less fortunate or maybe they find magic in the holiday cards they are creating! I cant wait to find out!

My holiday magic is being together with my friends and family and how even more special they are to me during this time of year. I am always so sentimental at Christmas and hug them a little longer or laugh with them a little more and tell them how much I appreciate them because I dont see them as much as I'd like to during the rest of the year ( I think I need to work on that!) The magic of family and old friends never fades no matter how long its been since we've seen each other or talked with them.

I also have an extra special magical memory of Christmas with my Dad. He passed away in 1994 and Christmas was always extra special for me because we both shared the same birthday on December 25th. How cool is that!? A friend of mine told me once that I will always have this day to remember him and all the birthdays we shared and the birthday cakes we blew out candles together and that is just what I do. Even now, on Christmas Day I say, "Happy Birthday, Dad!" I know he is still here in spirit helping me blow out the candles on my cake!:)

And now for some holiday magic fun and games! I am going to ask you guys a question and for those of you who know the answer you can email/convo me at my Etsy shop or at Paper Craft planet,CDAD or SNR groups (or if you already have my email you can email me there, too, or you can just yell really loud!:)) with your answer and the winner will win my not yet released, "Missy the Mistletoe Fairy" image and here she is!:)

And here is how you can win little Missy - Just answer this question:

"What is the name of my mischevious stamp character who appears in the most digital stamp designs and who also appears under the christmas tree in a digital stamp that was recently released?"

Know who it is? Well here is another clue for you... the answer has 6 letters and those letters are waiting for you as clues along the way at our Holiday Magic blog hop! There are 6 blogs that have letter clues for you and all you have to do is find all 6 letters and unscramble the word and email me at Etsy with your answer!!

And there's more! Along the hop we are also giving away 2 more of my newly released holiday images called, "Tia the Holiday Fairy" and "Christmas Blessings Angel" so make sure you visit all of our blogs along the way and leave a comment to be entered to win one of my new digis!! All of our winners will be announced on the Michelle Perkett Studio Challenge Blog on Monday! Good luck and lets have some Holiday Magic Fun! Happy Hopping!

Your next Magical stop will be the blog of our talented DT Blog Coordinator, Jan!
And if you get lost you can come back here to our list of hoppers below, Have fun!
