El dia de Reyes

Welcome to the El dia de Reyes blog hop! The El dia de Reyes, also known as the Epiphany celebrates the three Magi's (Wise Men) visit to the Christ child. It also culminates the 12 days of Christmas which begins December 25th.


Gaby of Gaby Creates is the host of the hop and you want to start at her blog. We are also celebrating her only daughters birthday, which also happens to be on this special day!

Here is the line up if you get lost:

For my project I chose to make a light box:



Supplies used: Kraft Block - Hobby Lobby; black vinyl - local craft store; ribbon, floral spray - Michael's; cut files - Silhouette Studio; white mini lights - Walmart.

I would like to thank Gaby for inviting me to share this special day with her!

I will also have a blog prize. All you have to do to qualify is to be a follower of my blog and leave a comment below. I will pick a winner Sunday evening and announce the winner on Monday.
Thanks for stopping by.
