Christmas in September!

My sister is coming for a visit this month while hubby takes a trip working on his genealogy--can't wait! It also happens to be her birthday month, so this will be an early celebration.  Laurie has always been the Martha Stewart of our family & one of her specialties when it comes to baking is homemade biscotti.  She knows it's the best gift she can give me for every occasion--LOL! I saved a Pirouline tin & decorated it for Christmas. Since she gives her biscotti to other people besides me, this will be one of her birthday presents. 

These are the main products I used (feel free to ask if you have questions): Printed paper by Echo Park, American Crafts blue pearl brad, White velvet ribbon, Red sparkle ribbon, Stickles Star Dust, Distress Ink weathered wood, Spellbinders circle dies, EK Success snowflake punch, Martha Stewart border punch, Penny Black stamp set "to you" (30-067).  

I'm entering the Holiday Food & Treat Wrap Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. Thank you so much for coming by & leaving a comment.
