{ Gift giving Season is upon us! }

That's right! I originally saw this tutorial on Beates blog and thought what a great way to use up some of the 500 coasters I have! This was the project I did this month for my class. This would make a great Christmas or winter Bday gift. And this Stamp It Austrailia paper is perfect! Anyone in the Calgary area can pick up this paper at the Scrapbook Pantry. So...what do you think? I was planning to use my Bind-it-all, but I did not have the right sized coils for this project and could not get any in time. But I think the ribbon actually gives it a nice 'romantic' feel. Think I will be making some more of these!

Also, before I was my September Aloha RAK that I received from Colleen. How awesome was this?! Love that little matching mint holder. I can not wait to dig into those mints...I almost forgot about them. ;0) Thanks again, Colleen.

I also recieved some BRAKs yesterday. This first one is from my friend Nancy. And she used her new TCP stamps too! Thanks again, Nancy. :0)

The second one is from Joan(froglady @ SCS). What a fun card. I love that stamped background! I really should try this more often. Thank you so much, Joan for thinking of me.

I have a couple of 'tags' that I need to work on that I have received from a few people the past week or so. I will be back...
