It's a WRAP!

Happy December!!!

Today, the My Time Made Easy team is sharing a GREAT new template that is available for purchase RIGHT NOW over at My Time Made Easy, called Wonderfully Wrapped.  Let me tell you -- this is a FUN template.  It's SUPER easy to put together -- with a more sophisticated look.

Here's mine:
I was feeling a bit nostalgic, as today is my last post with the team at MTME.  Those of you that follow me, have noticed I haven't been around much.  In fact, my last post was the last MTME release!  I think I need to take a step back for a while, focus on my family, and my home...and you never know, you may just see me pop back up out of nowhere...but for now, this is what I need to do.

BUT -- back to my nostalgia ;).  I decided to go back to the VERY FIRST digital papers offered last year, the "12 Days of Snowflakes", and as usual, I felt the need to tweak the colors, because I've had this pretty ribbon FOR-EV-ER, and never had a good paper that matched it, that's the beauty of digital paper, and a little photoshop know-how.  Here's the side view:
I kept it very simple, creating a large ornament out of some silver glitter paper using my Marvy Mega Circle punch, and hand cutting the ornament 'topper'.  I used the frame and a sentiment from So Sentimental, and affixed it to the front. Done!

Simple, elegant, EASY, just the way it should be.

I'd like to take a quick moment to thank my fellow teammates for all of their support, laughs, and shared late nights over the last year... they are ALL an amazing group of women, and I'm BLESSED that our lives have crossed.

I'd really like to thank Lauren, for giving me this amazing opportunity.  She is such a delight to work with, and her creativity inspires me daily.  I love to see her business grow and flourish, she deserves it.

And of course, I'd like to thank ALL OF YOU...for stopping by, and leaving a word or two, or for just stopping by, and perhaps sharing a smile :O).

I wish you all the happiest of holidays, may they bring you joy that lasts all the new year through!!

Now, hop on to the rest of the team's blogs, they've ALL got something marvelous to share with you today!!

Well done Tracey. Both your project with the great glittery ornament AND your work on the DT. Don't let it all overwhelm you - do what you have to do and know that we'll all still be here in some form. Have a blessed holidays and don't be a stranger.

Well, your post title says it all! While I love your box, the pretty colors, and that fab ornament, I'm sad to see that this is a "wrap" for you! I will certainly miss you and fully applaud you on focusing on your family! Work, families, and crafting don't always mix very well and I'm glad you made this choice! Happy Holidays!
