Product Spotlight Blog Hop - October 2010

It's time once again to highlight some gorgeous CTMH products. If you've come here from Kristie's blog, then you're on the right track. This hop is a round robin so you can start anywhere and end up right where you began. From here, you'll be headed to Haley's blog.
Gift giving season is almost upon us and this month CTMH consultants have chosen to show you a few adorable gift ideas that you might be find useful. Today I'm showing a little something I plan to hide on my coworkers' desks this year. I enjoy sharing a few of the things I love and my favourite thing for the season is HOT CHOCOLATE!!! Love it!
I found a huge box in Sams that had a lovely variety of hot chocolates - from the usual milk chocolate to the more exotic raspberry chocolate to my absolute fave dark chocolate. Of course I had to take it home with me. We don't have a big gift exchange at the office since we do a Secret Santa. But I thought it would be fun to stash a few of my hot chocolates in a couple of desk just to see the faces when they were discovered. And you can't just hide it without decorating it a touch. How else would they know it was a little gift for them?
I'm a big lover of stamping so I thought I'd challenge myself to create a package that used absolutely no stamping anywhere. I ended up creating a "matchbook" using the lovely papers of Topstitch as well as the Topstitch My Stickease. Topstitich features a great colour combo of Baby Pink, Heavenly Blue, Vineyard Berry, and of course Chocolate. Appropriate? I think so. Check it out:


Now head on over to Haley's blog and see what she's done for you...

Supplies used: PP - Topstitch; Cardstock - Colonial White; Inks - Blush, Chocolate; Accessories - Topstitch My Stickease, Soft Suede Pinwheels, Clear Sparkles.
