A bear, new storage and a candy winner

Here's my second post for this morning and I'm starting it off wit this cute bear digi from Crafty Sentiments. There is a really fun challenge at Ready-Teddy-Go which is It's a Wrap. You have to make something based on some packaging. I looked through my kitchen cupboards and found all kinds of products which inspired me but I wanted to go for something different and remembered this tin.
It was the packaging for a watch my hubby bought at Disneyworld, isn't it great packaging. I also wanted to challenge myself with a colour scheme I wouldn't normally use. I've used up odd bits of old papers on this one too along with some buttons and twine. The border punch is MS simple scallop.
Other Challenges:
Emma's Cards Stripes
Cupcake Red and yellow
Incy Wincy Something old/new (Old papers, new digi)
Hubby is decorating the lounge and we had a silver shelf unit on the wall which we decided we didn'want to have in the lounge anymore so here it is in my craftroom. Plenty of space on there for more goodies.

I'll be adding this pic to my craftroom page.

For the winner of my CD I added up all the comments on the sneak peek posts and put them into Random Org and it chose

That's you, Mamma Mia.
Congratulations. Guess what I will be singing all day now.
Please e-mail me your address so Crafter's Companion can post out your CD.

Thanks to everyone who entered and welcome to my new followers. I really appreciate all your comments. I would love to return them all but do my best to comment as much a I can. Thanks also for your wishes for Hubby's Birthday. We had a lovely day, the sun shone and I thoroughly recommend Legally Blonde - The Musical. If you love Hairspray this is the musical for you. Really fun and feelgood. Great music too.
