CHA & TaDa Creative Studios!!!

Before I get some last minute packing done, I wanted to share one of the projects that will be at TaDa Creative Studios Booth (#2035) at CHA (Craft & Hobby Association) Trade Show!! The Jolly Holly Days Collection is a wonderful designed papers perfect for any Holiday themed scrapbook pages! But it is also perfect for those cookie exchange recipes, holiday cards and even home decor like my gingerbread house. Actually it can be a tall box tissue cover as well! See the chimney? It is an opening for tissue dispense! I ran out of tissue so I didn't have it pictured here but you get the point, right!

Would you like to win this collection? Even better, would you like to win the entire NEW RELEASE?!

All you have to do is (Read the entire directions first, it will make sense! LOL!!):
Leave a comment after this TaDa post telling us what your favorite new TaDa collection is;
Then go shout it out on your own blog, Facebook or message board that you frequent;
Be sure to leave the following address so others can take a peek:
Along with your comment, leave us the link to your posting for verification.

Good luck!!
