Fall-i-Days Christmas Blog Hop

It's that time again for my friends and I to hop.  I just got home from taking care of my parents for five days and sorry I haven't had much time to fix all the projects that I had planned, but come back later next week and I will have some more ideas to share with you.  You arrived from Buffy's Blog, isn't she amazing and she blogs every day!  I wish I could get my act together to blog once a week.  Once again I have pictures of Addison Grace, but they are at the end if you only want to see paper projects.  My first project I was inspired by Inking Idaho this week.  Becky is so talented and I had to make a snowman myself.
Candle Snowman
For the next two projects I was inspired by our Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog, just loved the ornament on the front cover.  I am sure that you have seen tons of them out on the internet, but I love mine.  In fact I have class tonight to make them.

The next project is from page 20 and they are origami stars. I did a lot of research looking for a way that I really liked how the stars turned out and found that once again I liked Frenchie's instructions on her blog best.
Well it is time for you to move on to Diane's cute cards.

Here are the promised Addison Grace pictures to share with you, I will be seeing her finally at Thanksgiving:
