Keep Christmas in your Heart






Hi Everybody.. Well as you read this my computer is in the shop!! Uggg. It has been shutting down on me for no reason and when I got to restart it I have got the BLUE screen.... So fortunately I have been able to save all my files but am with out a computer for a few days... Isn't it weird that when something goes wrong with your computer and it starts acting up you feel as though you have lost your purse!! What did I do 10 years ago when I could not afford a computer lol... Anyway I have made a little project that I am entering in a few challenge that I have listed below. I plan to fill this wonder gift template called Shutt-erfly by MTME with chocolates and give it to somebody special during the Holiday Season. The advantage of being a paper crafter is I can give delightful gifts like this for cheap!!! lol... Well that's it for me and next time I post hopefully I will have my computer back!! Thanks for stopping by and visiting me today....Monique

Absolutely beautiful!!! I love the color scheme, so unique for a holiday gift. I loooove the template, too. I just bought a few of the MTME templates, now I just need time to work them up! Hope your computer comes back soon!

It's definitely an advantage being a paper crafter and yes we're saving money :). But this gift box is priceless; GORGEOUS!

Oh Monique...the blue screen of death is the worst! I remember in college (just yesterday) and we used to make "prank programs" that would give other students the blue screen when they left their computers unattended to go to the washroom. Of course, the big floppy disks back then too, so I guess everything seemed like more fun! LOL!

Anyway...love your project. The blues and purples are just fabulous...and what a great idea for a Christmas present. I'm sure whoever receives it will love it.

I know exactly what you mean; these computers...We have become so dependant on them and nothing annoys me more than if I have planned to surf the net/post something on my blog and the Internet connection is down. Even if it's only for a short while, it makes me furious. Should just all work all the time, shouldn't it?

Anyway; absolutely adore this project!
