A Laura Inspired Gift

Hello and long time no post. We are so delighted with the amount of recipes we have gotten in, and of course the projects that we have been able to share in our news letter. We thank you all for your participation !!
There have been several questions as to what the tickets are for that we have been sending out. We along with Laura of  Following The Paper Trail and Kathryn of Kathryn Scraps are hosing a New Years Eve and New Years Day Bash. During those two shows, Laura and Kathryn will be announcing the names of the prize winners from the blog sign up,  then in addition to those gifts, Barrie and I will be drawing names from the tickets for more prizes. We will be posting the names of the winners from the tickets in the Chat as well as sending an e mail to those who have won. We have some great prizes that have been donated by our suppliers and each of us are providing a number of prizes as well. There should be a lot of gift giving going on, and we anticipate that we will have a wonderful time !!

I have to thank Laura for her Message Center Project, as it the perfect gift for my Daughter in Law who has been searching for something like this to put on her Fridge.  I made a few changes to the project but for the most part left it the same.  I have a couple more additions to the picture as shown but this is it

I had been dying to use the chalkboard paint that I have been hording, so instead of the acrylic it is a chalk board !!  I love the Tim Holtz Grunge Blocks For the word Memo at the top and his tutorial of how to use them is wonderful.

I added a little cover to one of the cubbies to hold the mini staples so they would not fall out.

I have gotten some hefty magnets for the back as well as a picture hanger so she can decide how best to use it once she gets it home.

This is the perfect gift !! Thanks Laura !
We want to wish each of you a very Merry Christmas and a New Year filled with Love and Laughter.
Carol & Barrie
