Happy New Year and alot of catching up to do!

Here is the gift set I made for our hand stamped gift exchange at my upline's Christmas party that we had this past Friday night. I have the greatest and sweetest upline! That's right Darla Cummins you are the best! (even though you stole the gift I wanted) I forgive you. I ended up with Tiffany Bauer's gift that she made which was a really cute picture! and I'll try and post it later, she used the curly label punch to make it. Anyway here's so more pictures of my gift exchange.

Flip Flop Scrapbook using the Hawaii Papaya DSP, Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango, and Chocolate Chip cardstock. I love these papers!!!

Inside of Flip Flop book. These are really fun and easy to make!

3 x 3 wooden box I altered with the DSP paper and a cute little ornament to go inside. I used the Kiwi Kiss reinker and some white acrylic paint to paint the box before I altered it with the DSP.
Another shot of the little box I altered.

Hey there bloggers, I am so sorry about being gone for so long. Yes I did get my Christmas cards done, all 87 of them! Since I last posted, Christmas, New Years and a Birthday of mine have all gone by. Notice how I slipped that last one in there. We have been doing inventory in little shop I work at (part time) in Palestine, IL for the last week and a half. We still count it all be hand, Willow Tree Angels, Boyd's Bears, Cherished Teddies and other little knick knackie things and I am soooo glad we are DONE!!!Now I've got time to get back to the important things like blogging and STAMPIN'!!! and I got a new Kodak EasyShare Camera for Christmas so please have patience with me while I'm figuring it out. But I love it! Now if I can just get DH to buy me a new printer/scanner/fax I'll be set. Catch you later!

These are fantastic. I especially love the altered box. Absolutely gorgeous. Its amazing how something so simple as covering a box with paper can be so striking! Great start to the New Year!

I love these! I never had any Hawaiian Papaya paper- I didn't realize it was so gorgeous. Like Jaz, I really like the box the best. So, ya had a birthday in there huh? Yours? I have a friend who was born on Kwanzaa (Dec. 26th)- her birthday sorta gets overlooked-poor thing. TFS!

Hi Twila,
Nice job showing off the cards from our party! I'm glad you had a good time! We should do that again sometime!
Your blog is looking great!
Take care

I like them all(the cards)too. You are lucky to have such a talented group to stamp with. And I love your box! I have a cabinet full of stuff i need to stick dsp to. I better get busy!

What a fantastic little gift set. I had not really seen that paper IRL before, the catalog really doesnt do it justice, I never thought that it was pretty paper before but you have sure swayed me in the complete opposite direction!
