Holiday Year in Review - My Time Made Easy Group Post

Today the My Time Made Easy team is doing their monthly year in review.  This month we are calling it a holiday year in review.  It's hard to believe the holidays are less than three months away!  Time to start thinking about all those wonderful people in our lives that we love to remember, and the handmade gifts we love to make and they love to receive.

I've chosen one of my favorite templates from MTME...the In Suspense template.
Even though this is an older template, I've paired it with some newer products.  The pattern paper is from this month's Mrs. Candy Claus digital paper pack.  I just love the red, pink, and brown palette. 

The snowman is Made in the Snow digital image.  It comes with the snowman, the string of lights, and a stocking for different pairings.  He's colored with copics and I added star dust stickles to the snowflakes and snow under him.   

And finally, I added the bauble from the chocolate grosgrain ribbon.  The bauble is from the new Beautiful Baubles digital stamp set, and the sentiment is from the new Well Rounded digital stamp set.  I changed the color to red in the GIMP software.  I swirled some pink ink inside the ornament and colored the hanger with a silver pen.

The sweet treats inside are caramel apple candy corn.  I know they are usually for Halloween, but the colors looked Christmas-y to me!  They are delish too!

If you'd like to see more holiday in review, stop by the MTME DT blogs.

I hope you have enjoyed the MTME posts over the last few days!  Thanks for stopping in today!
