Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Blog Hop - Holiday Collection Week 2

Hi and welcome to our second Design Team Blog Hop for Create with Connie and Mary Holiday CollectionI'm thrilled to be a Guest Designer and will be participating in these blog hops each Saturday as well as sharing a tutorial later on, so make sure you subscribe to the Holiday Collection today!
