Winter Fun!

I wanted to share one last Christmas project with you that I had made for family members this year! I used the picture where it actually snowed that ONE day here is Stockton, CA! Even though it wasn't much, the boys still loved it!!! I used my Gypsy to design it & then I had to cut out enough for 10 pages! I thought it would be nice to put the page in picture frames for everybody! I have to say that they were a huge hit!! I want to wish everyone of my visitors a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!! I am ready for a GREAT 2010!! Good night everyone!

I had a quick moment to myself so I wanted to share with you some simple gifts I made for Christmas! I had to come up with something easy & cute since I had to make 24 of these! Aren't these penquins ADORABLE!! I used the image from a new set called "Penguin Doll Set" PK318 from Peachy Keen Stamps, the pattern paper were scraps I had & I believe it is from Stampin up as well as the ribbon. I just simply wrapped them around these candy bars & there we had an instant cute gift! I hope everyone has a wonderful day & good luck w/all of your last minute Christmas shopping!! I must go because I have some serious wrapping to do!!
