Rock in the New Year

If you are popping over from the Imaginisce blog hop, Welcome!! I am so excited to be participating in my first hop with them. Today's challenge is to re-purpose everyday items that can be found around the house. This canister started its life as a Hot Chocolate container.  It is so easy to peel off the old label and glue on some fabulous pattern paper to jazz it up. Here I mostly used the Live Loud collection, I just LOVE these little  robots. You can participate too for a chance win $75.00 worth of Imaginisce products.

I used my i-rock to add a little extra sparkle to the chipboard robot and I love that I can stack the mirror stickers.
 With this being the start of a new year, I've decided that instead of a resolution I'm going to choose a word. A word that I can keep near me, a word that I can see written, a word that encourages me to change my lifestyle in small steps. For me that word is FOCUS. I have always been easily distracted. It is not to say that I don't get the job done............it just takes me longer because...........I hit a lot of detours along the way. Whether I end up looking at blogs for hours,  zoning out on the food network or getting caught up on chatting. This year I really want to challenge myself to be more productive and make better use of my time. So I look forward to sharing the benefits of that with all of you, there is going to be a whole lot going on around here. So thanks for joining me and don't forget to head on over to the other fabulous Imaginisce designer's blogs for even more chances to win
and have a
Happy New Year!!
