Merry Christmas to me..!!

My husband and I went to the city on Monday and did most of our Christmas shopping and I got most of it done and even a bit of early Christmas to me :)..and one the things that I got and have wanted for some time now is a light box...The one I got awesome..great for storage..and only cost $99.00 I thought that was reasonable. This is it all opened up and ready to go..

These are the lights they are on both sides

Taking it apart

A place for the light outlets and bulbs

The second fold

A place for the back drop which is grey or blue and it comes with a little tri pod for the camera

And this is it all folded up and ready for storage...Isn't this cool :)

Paint Cans

Arn't these paint cans the best...I seen them on PTI sight and ordered some to package my homemade Christmas treats to give away. I haven't decided if I will put in ginger snap cookies or my famous nuts and bolts.

I used Just rite stamps on the lid. Cut it out with scalloped circle & circle  nestablilites. I have a piece of paper with a bunch of different borders on it and used on the middle I dont have a great pic of it. The border paper is from My minds eye-snowed in ribbons . There are matching die cuts and that is where the snow man came from.The gift tag is a SU stamp called Bearing gifts. the red ribbon is from Michaels.

Next I used Just rite stamps for the lid again. The paper around the middle was a 12x12 piece with the pengiun on it and I just cut the penguin out and used it as a die cut. The ribbon ( that I just love) is from Michaels and I used the same gift tag. Pictures really dont do justice for these little paint cans they sparkle with the festive feel :)

And last I used Just rite stamps again ..The paper from 3 bugs in a rug is called Oh Christmas tree and Oh what fun. (it is double sided). The die cut Christmas trees are also from the minds eye die cut paper. I cant wait to hand these out. I am so bad once I get a project done or Christmas present bought I want to give it right away. lol I think I am worst than the kids. Thanks for stopping by.. Monique :)

Note Books

I got all my goodies the other day from PTI and the first thing I wanted to make was the note pads...When I seen these on PTI web site I knew I had to make some. This first one I made was for people who are trying to watch their weight and count points on weight watchers or count caloies..I used diet Sophie.. and Just rite stamps to make the calorie counter. I know look I forgot to color the scale.. oh well I have already taken pics and  posted so we will just have to use our imagination lol..until I can get it colored and re-take the pic..

This Holiday planner was made with whisper white card stock and Moxxie winter wishes PP . This cute little stamp is called Jolly Follies by Penny Black. I used Martha Stewart ribbon and some sticklers to add a little bling :)
