Happy New Year-ABC

Here we are a week into the new year and I'm finally getting around to posting. Happy New Year to you all.   It was nice to take a break but it's time to get back into the swing of things.

Since it's Monday and time for Anything But A Card at Catch The Bug,  I thought it would be fun to start off the New Year with a cute little cookie tin.  I repurposed a Christmas tin I recieved that is small and only big enough to hold a couple of those 100 calorie packs of cookies.  Perfect to kick off a weight loss challenge I'm entering at work. Five dollars to participate and the winner, or should I say loser, will win the pot at the end of the challenge.  Should be fun!

To add a little humor to my project, I've featured Bugaboo Stamps Gertrude-Frame It-Fitness Protection.  I love that sassy little  gal!


I painted the tin first and then whne it had dried completely I applied a layer of mod podge under the image and then again over the image to seal it.

That's all I have for now!  Until next time, have a great day and thanks for stopping by!  TTFN
