MIM #120 with Meljen Designs


Nice to have you here again.

I've been a bit slack with my posting of late. Not much time for crafting with the wind up of the school year etc.

I have been flat out this past week or so organising gifts for the teachers and aids that help my boys at school and the staff that I work with in the school office (40 in total).

I decided to make these adorable little Santa giftboxes and fill them with apricot balls and peppermint slice.

In the end I found myself a little short on time to make a card for this week's

Make It Monday linky party.

I decided in the end to use the gift tags I had made with a sweet image from our sponsor called 

Very quick and easy project that comes up looking a treat with this adorable image.

Yikes!! My colouring looks horrendous when you zoom right in on this tiny little image, lol!
