Naughty or Nice? List

Hi there, how was your weekend? Ours is cold and windy Ugh! but my husband and I did go out of town yesterday and got the rest of our shopping done, so it was a productive weekend. Speaking of shopping, as i was blog hopping awhile back i came across Christina's blog Flower's and Ink and saw her cute Christmas shopping Organizer complete with a Tutorial, how great is that! So i thought it would be perfect to make and take with me Christmas shopping and i must say this is probably the first time i was ever organized while shopping. I had everything i needed right at my fingertips, no digging for my list at the bottom of my purse every time i went into a store. all my receipts in one spot and i ALWAYS had a pen!! how cool is that.
For my shopping organizer i used Ctmh Cranberry Cardstock and i used Basic Grey's Wassail pattern paper found here. My Santa and Rudolph is from C.C.Designs Sugarplum's NorthPole set. For santa's beard i used liquid applique and let it dry by itself to give it more texture and for Rudolph's nose i used red stickles. The scroll i used for santa's list is a Ctmh stamp from a retired set. On the inside i used my scallop and 1.25 punch from SU! for my pocket i used CoCoa cardstock from Ctmh and embossed it with the D'vine swirls folder and my cuttlebug. the sentiment, receipt and gift list was made using my word program. I just added a pen in the middle and i was ready to go shopping. If you are a very unorganized shopper as i am i so urge you to try this. It sure saved me a huge headache! Well i hope you all had a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!!
