Waltzing Mouse... WALTZ!

I am so EXCITED to be able to join the WM Stamps Waltz this month.. it has been MONTHS! and I have MISSED it!!!

So first off before I get any farther.. I have to THANK very very much Renee! I had ordered the NEW 2011 Holiday Ornament Set last week.. I had made a comment I hope they arrived in time for the waltz... well Renee so KINDLY offered to send me some cut just in case! They arrived in time for me to finish TODAY! Now she sent me so many plus some BEAUTIFUL ribbon.. if our mail didnt get here so late I would have used more.. but no worries I will use it all up this season!!

Ok on with the projects.. FIRST off... EXCUSE the photos.. I had to take them inside since it was dark out when I finished! For this first one I was INSPIRED by the FABULOUS Melissa Phillips goodie she created HERE!

I cant share what will be inside since it is a holiday gift for someone very SPECIAL to me! BUT after it is opened I will!!
I spray painted and glittered the tin... then added lace, my tag, a stick pin (you cant see SORRY!) lovely ribbon from Renee, and snowflake center!

Next up.. I HAD to use the LOVELY red goodies Renee sent.. and as I do every year I plan to make up LOTS of tags.. so I decided to whip one up!!

Now before you go.. a peek at the TREASURES I got today .. and after my day.. I TOTALLY needed it! :) LOVE happy mail.. LOVE this hobby that has such generous kind people!!

IF you made it this far... THANK YOU for stopping by! I will be WALTZING after getting my kiddos up and off to school! Have a GREAT day!
