My First Challenge

I just want to say welcome to my new followers.  I appreciate the opportunity to share my thoughts and ideas with you all.

I have been MIA for a few days so I'm trying to catch up and get some crafting in.  My fiance and I are having a family emergency on his side that has kept me fairly busy and we are trying to move so it's been a little crazy.  I do have 2 stylish blog awards that I rec'd and I will get to them as soon as I can relax and blog.  This post is going to be short as it's about 12:20am on Friday the 3rd and I've been up for 24 hours and would love to sleep a little.
So I decided to take the plunge and try at my first challenge.  Momo does challenges every other Tuesday so check her out, you can find her at Made By Momo.  She's awesome and I love her blog.
The challenge this week is to make a treat box or bag and I was excited to do this project. I love how it turned out and I hope you do too.

Materials used:
Bag/box-cricut cartridge "Plantin Schoolbook" 
Paper-Die Cuts With A View The Christmas Combo Stack and Recollections Christmas pack
Tattered Angels-glimmer mist in Pearl
Lindy Stamp Gang-Cathedral Pines Green and Winter Jasmine Gold Starburst Sprays, Golden Angel Wings Embossing Powder.
Flowers/leaves-Prima Christmas pack 
Sure Cuts A Lot-scallop circle, Christmas tree and star
Stickles-Christmas Red and Gold
***Sorry for the close up picture of the tree, I realized that was a sorry job on the stickles department.  I wanted to show you how much the tree shimmers.

I will be back later on today as I have a ton of pictures for the projects that I have managed to do.  I also have pictures from some things I purchased and I have news about a blog hop coming your way!
