Christmas in July Week long event!!!

Welcome to the Third Annual Christmas in July Celebration for Bugaboo! Can you believe it has been three years since we started seeing the adorable Bugaboo images all over the web??? 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 three 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!
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.
