My Time Made Easy - Year in Review

Happy Monday (is that an oxymoron?)!  Did you enjoy your Super Bowl Sunday, and are you stuffed today?  (I'm writing this before the game, so I don't know who won yet but I know I ate too much!)
Did you see our new products that were just released over at  My Time Made Easy?  It certainly was a "royal" release!   Today is our monthly Year in Review post for My Time Made Easy.   This is where we use old and new products in our creations.  I had something else in mind to make for today, but when I was reading the Sunday ads in the paper I came across this box of Reese's in the Walmart ad and totally changed direction!  How cool is this?   And I KNEW I could recreate this look easily!
 So here's the outcome!  Sweet, huh?  I am totally smitten with this design!  First of all, I LOVE Reese's peanut butter cups!  My all-time fav candy!  I started by making the heart-shaped box from the With All My Heart template.  This template was released last month, and with Valentine's Day just around the corner I thought I'd use it again.  The camoflauge paper comes in the Made in the USA package.  I recolored it in GIMP to match the picture above, and cut the heart and a brown mat for it using the decorative pieces that come with the template.  The word "sweet" (and other Valentine words) also comes with the template.  I mounted the letters on a label from the Fabulous Frames cut file.   The bow was created with the bow easy template.

Quite a few of these mini Reese cups fit inside.  The ones that didn't fit inside are in a drawer in my craft room waiting for me later on!  :-)  
The rest of the team is posting today too, so make sure you stop by these blogs.

Wow! You took your inspiration to an amazing outcome, Lisa. A totally cool creation with a little something left over for you;)!! Superbowl looked like it wasn't going to be much of a game and then the lights went out. Hubs went to bed but I was doing something with the game still on and saw it come back. I went up and told him and he finished watching it in the bedroom while I went to sleep:))))

How cute is this?! I'm loving how you show something people BUY and how you RECREATE it.
