Let's Celebrate with Everyone!!!

Happy Tuesday!!!
I love you all! but, I had to combine my challenges/posts today! Sorry :(
My boys and I are still not feeling well, and well... I really needed to take a step back from crafting and concentrate on getting us 110% healthy again ;)

... sigh... Ok, enough violin playing ;) Here we go...

It was my turn to choose this week's theme for Twilight Tuesday's Inspiration Challenge 57...

" I don’t know about you guys, but I’m still celebrating the release of New Moon!
And with my b’day in just a few days! I’m in the mood to keep on celebrating in every way possible!"

... sigh… wouldn’t it be nice to receive a handsome vampire as a gift? ;)

This week’s Challenge is to create a “Celebrating” project for the vampire-lover in your life! You can choose any holiday or event i.e. birthday, Christams, Valentine’s, etc.

Comment portion: There’s no denying that we all have wish lists! Especially with the holidays upon us! Some lists are a little more practical than others… What’s on your “not-so-practical” wish list???

{My impractical wishlist consists of... sparkly vampires! Unlimited supply of adhesive, Copic Markers and Papertrey Ink Cardstock! PLUS! An extra 2 hours a day dedicated to ME time only!!!}

AND! This week's Die Cuts R Us Challenge is to create a Project with a Holiday Feel :)

I am also submitting my lil tin to The Pink Elephant Color Challenge 44 (which are the traditional Christmas colors - Red and Green!) and Club Anya's "The Complete Package" Contest :)

It's currently filled with Andes Mint Chocolates and a New Moon keychain... What better way to celebrate the upcoming holidays and the release of New Moon!!! hee, hee!

I'm planning on adding some Dew Drops and Buttons and maybe some ribbon!
The recipient can then use it to keep their keepsakes, movie tickets, anything ;)

Here's the back...

... I {heart} my Clear Spica Glitter Marker :)

Tin Box Details:
Paper(s): BasicGrey Eskimo Kisses DP; Papertrey Ink CS
Stamp(s): The Greeting Farm "Xmas Cuties" Rubber Stamp; Sassy Studio Designs Holiday Tags
Ink(s): Memento Tuxedo Black Ink; Copic Markers & Atyou Spica Glitter Markers
Accessories: Making Memories Vintage Findings Tin Box; Martha Stewart Star Border Punch; misc double-sided ribbon; K&Company Gems; Neco Keychain; Andes Mint Chocolates

I'm praying that my very soon 6yo, Nicky, will be well enough to go to school today! That my 3 1/2yo, Matt, will love his new crayons and draw more pics of his "family" without having too many coughing fits and that I can get through my day with lots of patience and a positive attitude ;)
Have fun with your challenges! Can't wait to see what y'all will create!!!
Thanks for stopping by :*)

How cute is this??? I love it! Umm...I'll take the Andes Candies, please!! LOVE those sinful things. Why are they sinful? Because I can't eat just one!!! I hope Nicky will be well enough too. I'll pray for him too. And how sweet is that comment you made about Matt and drawing his family??? Patience and a positive attitude. I will NOT pray for patience for you. I learned my lesson on that one. I did that ONE time and all hell broke loose. I guess God believes in the hands on approach for learning patience... :)

Alison said...

Hi Margie,
I'm so sorry that I haven't been to see you lately and apologize to you. I have been running around like a mad woman trying to get everything ready for the holidays and I'm so bummed out at the moment. I'm seriously going to take a break from everything after my last challenge on the 19th.
Now...getting to your project, it is stunning!!!!!
I love the way you decorated the tin and your image is gorgeous!!
Take care and I hope that you and the boys feel better soon:)
Big Hugs
p.s. Happy Birthday wishes to you also! My sons birthday is tomorrow and he is super excited about it:) What exact day is your birthday?
