Doin' the Happy Dance... :)

Can I please get a 'WHOOP WHOOP'?! I am totally psyched... I won a TAC demonstrator-only contest!! CLICK HERE for the link to see all of this month's winners on TAC's website... mine is the Amelia Chocolate Abundance Tin in top left box!! This is such an honor... there are so many talented Angels, that's it's tough to win. FREE STAMPS! MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ME! :) Tonight, I'm going to show you my Reece Chocolate Abundance Tin.

Stamps: More Abundance, Joy of Christmas, Juliette Florals
Paper: Reece SWIC & cardstock

Ink: Burnt Umber & L'Amore Red Palette, VersaMark

Ribbon: Reece, Angelee, Hemingway, & misc. from stash, Brown Scrapper’s Floss
Other: Marvy's Giga Scallop Square, Marvy's ¾” & 1" Circle Punches, Crop-O-Dile II, Hydra Sponge, Pop Dots, foam tape, and an empty Godiva Pearls metal tin (yummy!)

I must say, that I had a mighty tasty time emptying that tin in order to alter it... Godiva chocolate is beyond decadent :)

The CDII was perfect for punching a hole in the top of the lid... just don't try to set an eyelet in there... it doesn't work & you'll torque the lid to where it doesn't want to close... TRUST ME. :) That's why I popped up a decorative circle for the ribbons to go up, around & through.

This tin is pretty tiny, and is perfect to hang on the Christmas Tree! Instead of making the little accordian abundance list, you could have family member write their own 'Abundance is...' on slips of paper every year on Christmas eve. Then later, when you're scrapbooking your Christmas photos, you can include these slips on your layout. How fun would this be every year?!


What do you think?!
