Saturday, January 10: Frozen Blog Hop

Welcome to the FROZEN Blog Hop!

Whew! You've made it!!  
I am the very last stop on this super-chilly, wonderful blog hop. I hope you've enjoyed your visit and have been inspired to create your own wintery wonderland in your craft room.

So pull up a chair, a wooly blanket, and a cup of hot chocolate and enjoy one more fantastic project.  

I signed up for this Hop a long while ago, knowing that by the time January rolled around, our family would have been able to enjoy the Philadelphia presentation of "Disney on Ice: Frozen" to feature in my project. In addition, my granddaughter Charlotte -- a true Frozen fan -- would have celebrated her Frozen-themed fourth birthday party by the time of this Hop.  

I decided to make a mat/frame for a Memory photo of the occasion. What's a memory photo?  It's a 12x12" one page layout that I'll get framed. It's for those of us who just aren't scrapbookers enough to do a 2-page layout, but want to make the picture like a layout.  Here it is:

Charlotte was delighted when she saw this! The "snow maiden" cut-out is a file from the Silhouette Online Store, cut with my Silhouette Cameo 2 (a Christmas gift from hubby), using Close To My Heart "Glacier" paper.  The sentiment "Let It Go" is also a SOS/Cameo cut file, and cut from American Crafts silver glitter paper.  I glittered the cuts using Ranger Silver Stickles and CTMH Glitz, a retired product (that I LOVE!)

While I have an opportunity, let me say that the Disney on Ice production of Frozen is beautiful -- fabulous costumes in this story retold on ice. It was an exciting production even for adults, and Charlotte was enthralled, as you can see in these pictures:

Here are just a few shots from the show. We didn't bring cameras (silly us!) just cell phones, so the quality of these pics isn't great. We just wanted to focus on Charlotte's delight, and we weren't disappointed.

We had great front-row seats on the ice!! that my hubby "Pot" bought as a Christmas gift to Charlotte's family.  Thank you so much Pot for making this wonderful memory!

Now official Hop information:
