Love the snowman ornament - so cute! Thanks for the chance to win the journaling kit!

My friend had a beautiful healthy baby boy (21 inches long). In...get this...
ONE HOUR. Yes, she labored for one hour. She almost had him in the car. Bless her little heart!


Here is a quick ornament for your tree this year.

I had a ton of these tin cases left over from Ethan's baby shower favors. Yup, I never throw anything away. I now store brads in them.
Supplies:
Tin with clear lid
snow glitter
ribbon
paper (snowman & background)
I made a quick background and a snowman in illustrator, then I cut them out. Glue the background to the back of the inside and I left a tab at the bottom of the snowman. I punched 2 holes with my cropadile in the top of my tin, tied a ribbon. Pour glitter inside. Glue shut and place on your tree or in my case...let Ethan shake it like crazy!

Very simple. :)

Giveaway-
Since today is December first- and everyone is starting their daily albums, if you wanted a journaling kit, and never got around to it, here's your chance.
Leave a comment for a chance to win one.

I'll pick a winner tomorrow. :)
xoxo, Veronica

Ohhhh, I have some of those little tins too. What a cute ornament, and child friendly too. My kids are older teens, but I do have some great nieces and nephews that these would be great for. In fact some of them are old enough to help me make them. Now I just have to find the time.
Thanks for the opportunity to win this give away too.
