Helmar and May Arts Blog Hop... a perfect fit for my December Daily

Our team has been excited about this hop. We love playing with ribbon and May Arts always has gorgeous ribbon for us to play with. What is even more fun is that Helmar and May Arts are giving away TWO chances to win some great product on this TWO day Hop!

Helmar will be offering two Arts & Crafts Starter packs!

May Arts will be offering two prize packages of winner’s choice of 2 spools of ribbon!

So, how do you enter to win a chance at one of these grand prizes? Hop through with us and visit each designer’s blog and leave a comment on their Helmar and May Arts Blog Hop post. The first winners will be chosen on the 21st and the second winners will be chosen after the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend! So let’s get started!

I love how you used divided page protectors, but it is still fun and unstructured in design. I am finding the boxes a bit confining right now. Thanks for the ideas.
