Here is my project that I've created....




This is a 3D window frame which you can hang on your wall. I got the idea from Brigit's Scraps you can find all the details on her blog how to make the frame. I decided to put my Cat in the Hat on top of the window frame to make him look like he's inside reading the book. This pattern is from KaDoodle Bug Designs called Christmas Stories.
I put some paper behind the frame to make it look like it's snowing outside. I also used Snow-Tex to add a 3D snow affect to his hat. It was completed by adding a string of lights at the top.

You're at the beginning of the hop. Please come back tomorrow for Day 2 as we have the rest of DT group with more great projects!!

Your next stop is : Kathy

Here's a complete list of the line up incase you get lost along the way...
