I bought a snowman hat at a craft fair because I loved the idea. I changed a couple of things with the hats so as to not be like the original. I put my coffee cans right side up, so I could fill them with cookies or potpourri or a cocoa mix gift...lots of ideas!!
For the candle, I used a toilet paper roll, cut it and made it smaller to hold the electric tealight. I needed something that the tealight could come out of, so you could turn it on & off or change the battery. I painted it white, then sprinkled gold glitter over it. I made the wax drippings with hot glue. I used snow tex from Hobby Lobby for the drops of snow. The 2 poinsettias I made and you can find the tutorial here. All the other goodies I used to decorate I have found at Walmart, Menards, and Hobby Lobby.
Just a closer shot of the embellies.
This is the hat that painted my car! LOL I splattered the above can in my scraproom and realized that wasn't very smart...oh not....much smarter to take it outside and splatter my car! I made the poinsettia and rose myself. I love the little birdie I added to this one.

I made this layout a couple of weeks ago and am just now getting it to posted. I special thank you to my friend Alissa for her help on this...I texted her a pic and asked what was wrong. She gave me some suggestions, and the layout ended up with a total make-over.
This is my daughter Shelby at the beach, a pic I had taken in the fall of 2010. The flourish on the pic I added in Adobe photoshop elements before printing it out.
I made the flowers myself using the Spellbinders rose creation die. I sprayed them with both blue and heirloon gold perfect pearls mist. The little leaf stick pins were part of a birthday gift I got from my wonderful friends in JAFF Jr. at Scrapbook.com. I made the bling myself.
The corner piece and butterflies are rub-ons. The writing & leaf spray is a stamp that I embossed with distress black soot embossing powder.
The butterflies (I think) were from Lisa Gregory at What a Beautiful Mess. She is always so generous with the stuff she makes. I printed them out on photo paper, fussy cut them, then added some clear stickles. Shape the wings a little bit then attach.
Added some stitching and ribbons. The title is also a rub-on. I believe all the rub-ons came from a package by Cherry Art.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!!!
