Happy Golden Birthday!

I love that I can spend a few hours in my studio using stuff lying around (especially in it's current messy state) and create a pretty cool gift for my nephew:

Tuesday is his Golden Birthday, 17! So I found his favorite candy in gold and then added his money gift. At this age, money is the best use of my gifting skills. He's going to have a fun time unlollying those $5 bills! Did I mention there are 17 Reese's Peanut Butter Cups?

I used many products in this gift. I just kept finding more and more yummy things to add! I used the star framelits for some gold foil accents as well as the Hello You framelits on the banner. The base is a tin can covered with the Back to Black Designer Series Paper. The bow and vase filler is the retired gold waffle paper. I have now used it all! I stamped in gold Encore Ink using the Good News birthday stamp. I just inked the birthday half.

Stamp therapy was definitely needed this weekend after a valentine's week with 6th graders. Whew! 

Happy Creativity!
