All That Glitters Blog Hop ................Day 2

I am having so much fun being a part of this blog hop, some of the other participates had projects planned for each day.  This was not a requirement and I had nothing planned to post on day 2 until Melissa our fabulous organizer came up with this "Twas the Night Before Our Blog Hop" that was absolutely too incredible to pass up making a project out of.  It needed to be showcased in some thing special.
We all know that Melissa is so talented in coloring with her Copic markers, but we had no idea she was a poet also.  This adaption of the old poem is just an unbelievable piece of work.  So I put it together in a frame made of green and very sparkly red glitter paper.  I added some glittery stickers around the sides and of course one of them is a sparkly red bird.  Melissa worked so hard to put this blog hop together and worked tireless to make it easy for all the participants that she deserves a big huge hug from everyone!  {HUG} we love you Melissa.
In case you can't read the words here is a copy of them.
'Twas the Night Before Our Blog Hop and all through the house not a creature was stirring not even a computer mouse.  The blogs were all typed up and prepared with great care in the hopes that blog followers would soon be there.  The projects were pictured and all snug in their blogs while visions of glitter danced in our nogs.  And Nana Donna in her first hop and I in my third had just settled our nerves after seeing Nana's amazing glittery bird.  When out in blog land there arose such a clatter, I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter.  Away to my computer I flew like a cop, tore open the laptop and opened the hop!  The moon on on the breast of the new fallen-shine, gave the luster of glitter on crafts so divine.  When what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a perfect project without the tiniest of smear.  With a number of bloggers, some old and some new, I knew in a moment our blog hopes had come true.  More friendships we formed and lasting bonds they became, and I whistled and shouted and called them by name; on Peggy and Donna, on Jill and Jennifer, on Jeannie and Sheila and Bobby and Summer.  On Melissa on Mary,  on Gaby, on Nana and Sherri to the tops of the blog lists, both large and small, now craft away craft away craft away all.   And away we went with heads held high after a successful hop had gone by.  But I heard us exclaim as we left all our sites the next hop will be better we will craft with all our mights.
