Christmas In July – Week long Challenges/Inspiration!

Teams Being Sponsored by Bugaboo

Welcome to the Fourth Annual Christmas in July Celebration for Bugaboo! Can you believe it has been four years since we started seeing the adorable Bugaboo images all over the web and the world??? I have been there from the start and I have to admit that the time has flown by. Jodie still amazes me each week and I am so proud to be on her team. Bugaboo has grown so much in the last four years and I am so proud of our team and everything we have accomplished during this time.
We would like to thank each and every one of you for your continued support of Bugaboo without you we would be nothing! Ok enough mushy stuff let’s get on with our Week long Christmas in July Celebration! We have lots planned this week with our Blog Hop, our weekly challenge but daily challenges as well. Not only have we adapted our challenges to fit in with our Christmas Celebration but our prizes are like will make it seem like it’s really Christmas!
Below is the start of our weekly challenge which is a Theme Challenge – Show us your Santa, below is a picture to get you in the mood! For your trouble you could win one of our Daily prizes which is our special Christmas in July Set and 10, 7 or 4 free images we are also offer many opportunities for you to be our guest, we have discovered that Bugaboo Fans/Followers are some of the best designers out there!

Don’t forget  in addition to our blog hop filled with wonderful prizes each day of our challenge you have a chance to win our Special Christmas freebies and our normal 10-7-4 images so play along for some great prizes!  
Please note you must follow the suggested theme and only one per customer daily for our CIJ Events.
We will be running one Post for all challenges; each day will have an Inlinkz which will open up at 7am for you to enter your projects. You can work ahead however will not be able to add your project until after 7am on the day of that challenge.
Now how about some inspiration to get your creative juices flowing!  We have many many wonderful samples to share with you this week, in fact too many to post them all so each day we will share with you a few “featured” projects and then I will have a list of other great projects for you to go visit on own.  You will not be disappointed!

Sounds like a fun filled week. Great cards from the DT.

Like the creations. Not sure if the blog hop requires comments on posts each day. Some of the people that have examples showed for Sun did not have a current post on their blog. Also did not see a separate comments for each day. Thought I had commented Sat but do not see my comment here so came back again.

Great challenge this week -DT did a wonderful job as well - thanks again for the challenge - have a blessed week!

Sunshine HoneyBee said...

Was wondering if all the challenge entries have to be Christmas themed? I figured since it was a Christmas in July Blog Hop that they did have to be Christmas theme. Please respond here & I'll ck back.

Tammy Miller said...

Yes they should be christmas theme pls!

Sunshine HoneyBee said...

I'm a question sort of person to make sure I follow the rules & cover all the bases so my next question is - does the Friday challenge require use of the Friday Freebie of the day 7/18 and also include something w/ the letter 'C' ad be Christmas of course or can we use any BugABoo digi other than the Fri freebie for 7/18 but have something w/ letter 'C' & be Christmas?

Thanks for a fun weeklong event! I've made 7 cards in one week - I've never done that before and it was quite a challenge, but fun!

I accidentally loaded Monday's card into Tuesday's link-up. I have loaded the correct cards now into both Monday and Tuesday. However, entry #22 on Tuesday is incorrect. Could you please delete it for me. Thanks.
