"Stamp Unto Others" after Christmas Party

So last night we had our Christmas get-together. It was soooo nice to get togther and stamp with this wonderful group of stampin' friends. We also had a gift exchange where we either made a gift or altered a gift using SU products. Here's some pictures of what the gifts were. This was Darla's gift that I had for a little while. She altered a goodie jar using our Decor Elements.
Teresa is holding the gift that Lori altered. She took a canvas board and made it into a picture board using SU's fabric and those wonderful brads and lace. We all oood and aughed over it.
Then this is a picture of Kelly holding my gift which is an altered photo album block, which Robin who is sitting beside her ended up with. I don't know how I didn't get a pictue of you holding something Robin? I think it was because there was to much stealing going on at one time. Sorry about that.
Then this is my wonderful upline Darla, she is a great upline and a wonderful friend and she is holding Teri's gift that she made which is a framed stamped picture and verse and a checkbook holder which I ended up with. : )
Teri is holding a candle that Leona altered with a belly band of DSP, a ribbon and a button. We missed you Leona!
Then this is a beautiful tin of tea that Robin alterd with the new DSP from the Occasions mini and yes now I have to get some. It's beautiful!!!
Here's Jenni holding the gift that Kelly brought. She made a cute little Christmas picture using our Decor Elements, ribbon and a button.
And here is Kelly again with Jenni's gift. A little plastic ID scrapbook and mini notebook and pen. Love the bright colors!!!
Here's some pictures of my altered box. Not my best work, and it's was harder to do than I thought it would be. I purchased these a couple of years ago from an on-line store and YES I bought them all.
It comes with 5 different little pull set of eight sleeves. The front and back of the box has glass windows and you can add photos or whatever to them.
Top view of the box. Thanks for stopping by and I'll try and get posted the shoebox swaps tomorrow. It was so fun to get together and stamp with all of you last night! Hope to see you soon.
