Awards and Gift Bags

I doubt that I will be blogging much over the next couple of days - so here's one last crafty post before the Christmas mayhem begins and I shall be back with one last post prior to the year end, with my high - and lowlights of 2009.

From Monday till Wednesday I still have to get to work, so I was busy preparing a few gift bags for my co-workers. I do this every year instead of Christmas cards, that they get a little gift container with some candy. This year it has become a bit more demanding as our team increased from four to eight....needless to say I was kinda busy the last two days.

But before I got cracking on those containers, I received quite a surprise on Thursday evening. At work we introduced this year an Awards Ceremony, which recognises those who have gone above what was expected of them. Everyone in the office was asked to vote for a colleague who they felt should be receiving an award. There were many different categories and here is what the winner of each would be getting:

The reason why I have such a fabulous close up of the bottle of bubble is because I AM A WINNER!!! Woooohooooo - my lovely colleagues have voted me the Passenger Relations Executive 2009 for the brands we work with. How stinkin' exciting is that?? And no, I haven't opened the bottle yet - I shall leave that for New Years Eve:)

So, that vote totally gave me the necessary inspiration to crank out those gift bags (I have been wrecking my brain on how to do it this year...) and this is what I came up with. Lots of My Minds Eye yummyness and Cuttlebug embossing. It didn't take too long to make these babies up and I hope my colleagues will like them.

Have a wonderful Christmas everyone
