Altered Syrup Bottle

I got this cute little syrup bottle when I went to Cracker Barrel in St. George to eat. I just loved the bottle so much I couldn't throw it away. My daughter accidentally broke one of the two bottles I got and I was very sad. I didn't know that my husband had called Cracker Barrel and tried to get me a bunch of these little bottles but they said they weren't able to sell them. We had gone back to the restaurant a month later when we were passing through there to eat and I was able to get a few more bottles. I wanted to decorate them for Christmas gifts. While I was finishing my dinner my husband went to pay the bill. He was taking so long that I went to go find out what was going on. He was talking to the clerk trying to find out how he could get some of those little syrup bottles for me for a good price. The manager would only sale them for $1.85 and we decided it wasn't worth getting the bottle with no syrup for that price. So I took what I got for free and left. When I got home I altered the bottle to make it look cute for Christmas. I used the Christmas Coco DSP, Real Red c/s, the new Scallop Trim Border Punch from the 2010 Sale-a-bration Catalog, the 5-Petal Flower Punch, 3 Gold Brads, Champagne Shimmer Mist Paint, Mat Pack & Paper Piercing tool, & some red metallic ribbon I had laying around to decorate the top of the bottle. It turned out really cute. I gave one to my Grandma that lives in Cedar City and she just loved it! Save all your cute bottles and tins, etc. and turn them into beautiful containers for gifts. ©1990-2010 Stampin' Up

Family Christmas Photo

This year we were a little late getting our family Christmas photo taken. My brother took it for us in his living room. He's great at taking pictures. I think it turned out great! For those that didn't get one in the mail this year here it is.
I hope that you all had a very Merry Christmas and that your New Year will be wonderful!

With Love,


I'm a Blogger now!!!

I finally decided it was time that I started my own blog. Aren't you so excited for me??? YEAH!! I had to bite the bullet and start doing Stamp Camps on my own for the last several months since my partner in crime Sandra has had a very busy family schedule that hasn't allowed us to do our camps together any longer. It has been very sad for me because I don't get to spend very much time with my good friend, but it's also been a good challenge for me to get myself organized enough to pull off a nice Stamp Camp on my own. Although it takes a lot of my time I've had very successful camps thanks to my wonderful family & friends that come and support me.

Thanks to you all!
