Happy New Year and another GSS submission

Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season.  I sure have enjoyed being off work for 2 weeks, I really wish I could stay home all the time.  Maybe I should buy a lottery ticket? 

We spent the last few days up at our cabin (in Northern Michigan) doing some snowmobiling.  There was lots of snow up there and the trails were in great shape.  We got home late last night, but not before stopping for a wonderful New Year's Eve dinner.


Now for my project.  This was entered in the December Guest Star Stamper contest at Papertrey Ink. 

I posted a couple weeks ago that my boss recently got married.  I wanted to get them a little keepsake to remember the occasion.  Since they had a December wedding, I thought a Christmas ornament engraved with their wedding date would be a nice gift.  I decided to make the packaging to show it off a bit more.  I made the Fold and Go template from Papertrey Ink using transparancy.  I then stamped it with the Snowflake Serenade stamp set with White Stazon. (It's my favorite holiday set - so versitile). I added a bit of bling on the snowflake centers.  Thanks for taking a peek and let me know what you think.

This is so gorgeous, Val! The transparency was a great choice. I rarely have the energy to deal with transparencies but I always love the way they look (on other peoples' projects!) lol.
