Christmas in July BLOG HOP!!!!

It's Blog Hop time with InStyle Stamps and we are hopping Christmas in July. If you came from Robin's blog your on the right track and if not start Here at the begining. I can't wait to see what the rest of the DT has created, can you????
So on to my creation!!! I was trying to think of what I wanted to create for this Christmas in July BLOG HOP and I remember this image called Christmas Wish List(from the ADIL line)and I thought how great would it be to make a book that we(my family) could all write down what we wanted for Christmas. That way all any of us has to do is look to see what the other one wants. My husband is terrible when it comes to gifts!! God help him.. he always gets me things I will never use or never wear!!
So I usually just buy it myself or tell him what I want and where to get it at.
The good thing about this WishBook is that there is enough room in it for all of 5 of us to have our own space and all our List from past to present years will all be in one spot. I thought it would be great for the kids to look at when they get older to see how there taste had changed over the years. Oh and also be able to see all the CRAZY stuff they ask for!!

I created this book out of a composition notebook.. covered it in this cool Non-traditional Christmas colors DP by My Minds Eye. I will add a list of all supplies at the end of this post.

As you can tell in this pic each one of us has our own tab, how cool is that!! I can't wait to show the kids!!
Here is the Blog Hop List just incase some of the links don't work or you get lost.
