A quick post then up up & away

Hi there
thanks for stopping by. I just wanted to share with you what i have been playing with this week apart from my Christmas table runner which i am pleased to say has been hand and machine quilted and is now ready to have the binding sewn on.

Last night my Stampin Up consultant-Tracey dropped of a new stamp set and punch and of course i had to have a play right there and then. Look at these cute little ornaments, i just have to add some bakers twine and then they are all ready to hang. I am thinking a whole lot of them in a bowl or big jar would make a great decoration. And how could i not go past this mini milk carton die, isn't it just way way too cute? It fits two yummy wrapped chocolates, i think i will be making a lot of these as well.
Everything used to make these cute things come from SU apart from the twine.

Now on to a lay out (or LO as i normally say) This one actually started out as a digital LO but i wanted to print it out there and then and as i don't have a 12x12 printer that wasn't an option so i kept the photo bit exactly how it was on the digital template and then i just printed that out. Then i just copied the rest of the template using real papers and ribbon so now tada i have a Hybrid LO. All of the papers and alphas for this LO came from my Cocoa Daisy kit club (incidentally they were voted in the top three kit clubs by the scrapbooking industry USA so if you get a chance go check them out. So worthwhile) the ribbon is from Stampin Up.

OK here is a link to a very cute free digi stamp, if you don't use anything digital you should have a go at downloading this one its a thank you and oh so cute.
This will be my last post for a little bit as up up and away we go, so please take care of yourselves and think of me doing it tough ie/ lots of shopping in the morning then relaxing by the pool in the arvo then a sumptuous dinner followed by more shopping (and can you believe i hate shopping-but not on holidays) be back soon with lots of photos.
Love Me
