Monday Blog Hop & Give-A-Way

Welcome to your
Monday Blog Hop and Give-A-Way 
with EAD Designs!
I'll be kicking things off this week, but be sure that you check out the
EAD Blog to see what's up for grabs this week prize wise :)

We were all pretty excited when my parents decided to treat us to a cruise 
this next year!  Although hubby and I have been, the kids haven't so this will be 
especially exciting and fun for them.  To keep in time with the anticipation as it builds, I created
this countdown to cruisin' display.  I used a metal mailbox (found in the $1 bin at Target)
and simply covered it in patterned paper from Echo Park.  I left one end of the tin
open so that the chalk can easily be retrieved (most likely by my daughter, who will have the
most fun keeping up with the countdown).  
 After applying the Chalk-It Tag I stitched on letter stickers to spell out 
"Cruisin' In...days"
I think Sydnee will have such a good time counting down the days!

Now it's time to head on over to Miss Amy's Blog
-----------------------------------------------
 Join us at Imaginisce as we share a WEEK LONG Blog Hop with The Twinery!
Fabulous prize packs to be given away, so be sure to leave comments along the way :)
My Imaginsice/Twinery project will be up here tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hops!
