KS Monday -- Dec 14th, 2009

Happy Monday and Kitchen Sink Monday, everyone~
I hope you had a wonderful and safe weekend. As I went and came back from Hot Springs, AR for Cheer Competition. Girls did a very fantastic job and finished 3rd! Not bad at all :):) Unfortunately Kim and Trey both caught a cold during the weekend :(

Today's project is just perfect for a little gift set for teachers or co-workers. I got this tube box at Dollar Tree. The box was already decorated for Christmas theme but I added more layers and ribbon to pimp it up, lol. The altered box and the matching card were used the newly released set, A Year of Thanks 2 and Multi Step Christmas Lights. I really want to show a project for lily of the valley image from AYOT2 but I just had to make one more Holiday project before 25th, hee hee.

These are the steps I did for each image:
Memento inks were used for all steps
(red light) 4th - london fog, 3rd - rhubarb stalk, 2nd - lady bug, 1st - lady bug (1 x stamp off)
(green light) 4th - london fog, 3rd - cottage ivy, 2nd - bamboo leaves, 1st - bamboo leaves (1 x stamp off)

(yellow light) 4th - london fog, 3rd - cantaloupe, 2nd - dandelion, 1st - dandelion (1 x stamp off)
