I'm Alive!! With Christmas in July!!

Hi everyone -

Sorry I've been MIA. My DT's gave me the week off last week - so I REALLY took it to heart ;). I hope you all had an enjoyable 4th of July if you live in the states. I certainly did...lot of good times with family and friends.

Well, if you haven't seen already, Dustin Pike is celebrating Christmas in July!! LOTS of cute images this week folks -- be sure to stop by his place on Wednesday for this week's freebie, and of course again on Thursday for this week's release...

One of the great images included is this super sweet snowman taking a dip in some hot chocolate...mmmm. I thought 'snowman soup'...but what to put it in...a Timeless Template of course!! Now -- don't be deceived, this will not close over those bottles, but I thought it was too cute NOT to use. This is the Let's do Lunch template by Lauren Meader.

I used some basic digi-know-how, and multiplied the marshmallows, to make a nice little pile, and added a friend saying hello.

The image is colored with my Copics, except for the marshmallows, which were done in white liquid applique. The sentiment is from PTI's 'Rustic Snowflakes' and the lids of the bottles as well as the template are decorated with other elements from that set.

Thanks for dropping by today -- I'll be back tomorrow with another post!!

Until then...thanks for stopping by!

Oh how cute! Maybe a little less cute cuz we could use some cocoa around here with the cold and rain. Blech! But this sure made me smile! WTG Tracey.

This is such a fun project. I may have to steal your hot cocoa gift package idea. Too fun!

This is adorable!!! I am wondering about the lunch box template that you used. Did you use it as the template size, or did you enlarge it? Thanks so much.
