Sunshine Monday

Good Morning Everyone! Happy Monday to you. I hope you had a wonderful weekend.

Today is Sunshine Monday and let me tell you - I had a hard time getting my project done because I kept having to slap hands away from it!

Everyone wanted to steal the m&ms! I dressed up a frappucino bottle and filled it with mint chocolate m&ms. I used All I Want for Christmas is... stamp - my intention was to leave this altered bottle for Santa instead of the usual milk and cookies. It's not going to last past tonight! I colored the image with copics, then layered on a Garden Green mat to match the boy's coat.

Here's a close-up of the top of the bottle. I created my own paper bow and then just added a little collar around the neck of the bottle. I chose this paper because it tied in the brown color around the lid so this made it a very quick and easy project.

I also have a couple of announcements. First of all, Sunshine & Giggles has a new home! Janice has been hard at work setting up a new blog that has some great new features! Be sure to check it out. Follow the blog and sign up for the newsletter so you stay up on everything that Janice is doing. Another announcement to share, sadly, December is approaching very quickly and the end of December marks the end of the current Design Team's term. So Janice is on the look-out for some really awesome designers for the next term. So if you're interested, be sure to check out the blog for all the details on how to apply. Janice is the sweetest lady and I will miss designing for her.

Thanks for stopping by. Now go visit Janice and the rest of the team to see what great ideas they have waiting to share with you.
