Altering and Saving the Universe!

Now that I got your attention...Sorry I couldn't resist that title. So I am deeming myself Queen of Blog challenges... I always seem to be doing at least one a day so if the shoe fits... Last night I was visiting my long list of blogs and came across a great challenge over at Hero Stamps Blog Create a last minute holiday gift using a Hero Arts Stamp. I only have 2 stamps from them so this little penguin seemed to fit. First I have been saving all of Lily's little snack cans to alter for Christmas cookie gift holders. So I started with this:

I used a 6x12 sheet of patterned paper to wrap around the can and used glue dots and adhesive to adhere the paper to the can. Then I used the Martha Stewart snowflake punch I got last Christmas and punched out some white snowflakes and used a little bling in the center. The top was easy to decorate as I cut a circle piece of matching patterned paper and glued in the center. Then I used my Crop a Dial Big Bite to punch two holes in the center of the lid to tie ribbon thru. I created the tag using a stamp by Hero Arts called Warm Winter Wishes and my Nestabilities scallop and circle die cuts. I tied a plastic snowflake button on the tip with some waxy flax and added ribbon and fiber. Cheap and easy! Total time to create was less than 10 mins and Voila!

Cute little stamp huh! Check out the challenge here The prize is a 50.00 gift certificate for the store, Yipeeee!!! Good Luck if you submit an entr

Now I remember saying in a previous post that I am really bad about scrapping things in order. Case in point my next page I whipped up Sat and Sun in between Scott's soccer games. A Christmas layout from a photo of Scott and Lily last Christmas. I used CTMH card stock and Prima's Holiday Poinsettia. You've got to get some of these flowers! So glittery and purdy! Then I found these ornaments at Micheals and knew they'd look great on a layout.

Now check out this cute little award I got today not once but Twice! First from Jessica and then again from Denise. Wow are so sweet! Thanks a million.
