Happy Monday - BBTB Challenge and Hop

It's Monday and Monday's are always a bit brighter because the BBTB team shares each of our takes on the weeks challenge. Today is our "monthly hop" so you should be arriving to my blog from DeeDee's blog - if you missed her amazing creation this week click here to go back to her blog!

This week we were challenged by Regina to use the most adorable little phone cut from the new From my Kitchen Cartridge. I decided to show some love to my bind-it-all since I really haven't used it that much. Anyway...here's a little (phone)message book :)




Since this week is our "monthly hop" and it's also our last hop for the year - since we will be taking some time off for the Christmas holiday - I have a bit of "blog candy" to offer up. Today I am offering one of the newer Christmas Cuttlebug Folders - Winter Trees to one lucky winner :) All you have to do is leave me a comment here on my blog before this coming Friday Morning - before I draw a winner. The winner will be chosen by random.org - so make sure to leave me some contact information so I will be able to get in touch with you.

Here's a little "preview" of the cuttlebug folder winter trees up for grabs:



The fun doesn't stop here - head on over to Penny's blog (click here) to see her amazing take on this weeks challenge and enter her blog candy giveaway!d

ps anyone know how to get rid of a nasty ad that somehow appeared on my blog. i just made the blog and i tried everything to delete it, no such luck. it is really nasty. i am embarrass and do not even know how it got there. but it is xxxrated help. i know this is not what this hop is for, but i am so new to all this and i can not figure out how. i tried to figure out how to email the blogsite and no luck there either. if someone could log onto my blog i would give them my password if they email me above to erase it for me. just email please if you know how to delete the nasty ad from my new blog for this newbie please.
