I really liked the breast cancer tin, but my vote will have to go to the Grandparents kit. I love the idea of little animals for the kids to color. I am going to use this idea for my little one. Great job to everyone.

It's a good life!

The breast cancer tin is the runner up for me......man is this a hard one to choose!! See what you created Melanie?? So many fun and creative ideas!!!!!

venicepat said...

Oh, the grandparents' kit is ingenious. What a neat idea to carry for that moment when you need something to occupy the little ones.

stacie said...

I am voting for the BREAST CANCER tin. Love the idea. Perfect for a quick little pick me up gift! Runner up would be Grandparents Kit.

Mary Dawn said...

grandma survival kit has my vote, i think of a million times that would come in handy for me :)

Rita said...

Shanon McNair has my vote - great tin to take along with the kids so that they can color & keep busy anywhere you go! Luv that idea!!!
Wish I had that when my kids were growing up. By the way this was really hard, they are all winners in my book!

jessthenurse said...

I love that Breast Cancer tin!

Anne said...

They are all incredible, but being where I am in my life, I have to vote for the Grandparents' Survival Kit. I need to get working on a Mothers' Survival Kit for myself!

Patti said...

I have to vote for the Breast Cancer tin - and the Grandparent's tin is a very very close second cause I just LOVE the idea!

Thanks for letting me vote!

I really liked the grandparent tin.. great idea. But I have chosen the Naomi tin as I have so many occasions where I just need a small gift and this is perfect for home/office desk. Love the girlie colours too.

marymn said...

LOVE them all! But my favorite is the grandparent survival. Very good idea!

sandie994 said...

I like Lee's little makeup tin. Great to put in a purse and be able to find everything.

I love the colours on the mother's day planter, but the breast cancer tin is so uplifting I would have to pick that one. Everyone has done a fab job. Lots of love, Denise in the UK

lunurse said...

So many great ones! I'm gonna have to vote for the "What Cancer Can't Do" Tin--such a creative idea that, I think, would really mean a lot to someone going through a difficult time.

Cat said...

these altered tins/cans are ALL do nice :) but, i have to vote for donna baker's cancer can't tin - what a nice gift!

Michelle said...

I love Donna's Tin... Think pink all the way baby!!!!

Ryan, Lisa and Abby Foust said...

I choose Pamela Smerker's Goodies Tin - I like them all - but I like this one the best! The breast cancer one is a close second!

catdidit said...

This was sooooo hard! *cries*! BUT, being a newly firt-time grandparent, hehe, I'm going with the grandparent tin! Thats gonna be a must have for me! Awesome job EVERYone!

Vanessa said...

It's a tie! I like both Sharon's and Donna's ideas!

Cindy said...

Being a grandma, I'd have to vote for the Grandma's tin! Love it! Need it x 2!

Maren said...

What amazing ideas!! So hard to vote! Since I am a mommy first, I voted for the grandparents survival tin. So perfect for me!! I can see myself bringing it so we can sit a bit longer in my favorite restaurant!! :-)

Lori J said...

I vote for Sharon Mcnair's Grandparent Survival Kit. I just love the idea of making coloring on the go. I am only a mother now, but I still love the idea. :0)

mcbetty said...

I vote for the coloring survival kit for those with kids-- sometimes I'm in church sitting near a family of restless kids. It would be wonderful to whip out the kit and let the kids color.

hobbydiva said...

I love the Mother's Day tin but I think my vote'll have to be the Grandparents tin. I have a very active 4yo and this would be great for us. I might just have to do this for my little guy. Thanks for a wonderful idea! :)

Erin... said...

What great samples!! I'm voting for the grandparent tin, b/c I can just see how excited my daughter would be opening it up and coloring away with gramma!

Annapurna said...

All of them are beautiful and great ideas, but the one I have to vote for is....

(Grand)parent Survival Kit.

That is the one I would make if I have the stamp set and tin, stick in my bag for a "keep them busy" occasion.

Debbie said...

they are all nice, but i vote for the breast cancer tin.

tmhowe@charter.net said...

Wow! Everyone did a great job on their tins! Love them all! But since I cannot vote for them all,
I vote for the Grandparents Survival tin. I think this is very cute and an awesome idea!

Michelle said...

I vote for:

Donna Baker

All of them ROCK though.

Carolina said...

Love the breast cancer tin because it's original and I can see it being such a great way to raise money for such a wonderful cause or just as a gift to someone; but the grandmother tin is a wonderful idea and the fact that it can be used pretty much anywhere is just adorable! Let's face it with the new set, she can just add those images as well!

Great projects from all!

Charmaine (CharmWarm on SCS) said...

Yikes, what a tough decision. . .they are ALL wonderful! I'm going to vote for Donna's Breast Cancer tin. That is such a touching gift.

Michelle Adams said...

I love them all, but my vote goes to Sharon Mcnair! Thanks for the chance to win!
Michelle Adams

Donna said...

they are ALL awesome, but since I can vote for my own...I will have to do that

Donna Baker's Breast Cancer Tin (I'm very proud of it because the minute I had the idea I knew exactly who I was making it for & gifted it to her the next day - it blessed her so much and the next week she gave me the sweetest thank you card - that's what doing all of this is all about for me. *smile*

StampinginKansas said...

The grandparents tin is my favorite. What a great idea!

cardcrazy said...

They are all great! The cancer awareness tin is beautiful. However, being the mom of 2 young boys, I have to say the crayon tin is an absolute necessity!

Rose Ann said...

All of them are fab!! I vote for Donna's breast cancer tin! I totally love this idea!!

TerryK said...

Since my life has been touched by breast cancer (not me personally but family members) I vote for Donna Bakers What Breast Cancer can't do tin. All the tins are wonderful and very creative!! Great Job everyone!!!

Hello from Iowa City, Iowa said...

My vote is for the cancer tin. Its a great theme set and well put together.

Monika in VA said...

I'd have to throw my vote in for Sharon McNairs Grandparent Survival Kit. It is perfect for taking to restaurants~ small enough to fit into any purse!!!

sophia landry said...

I think they are all wonderful, but I vote for Donna's Cancer Tin. My mother died of Cancer, My daughter is in remission from cancer and now my sister and I will have to undergo regular screening from an earlier age to ensure that we do not end up with breast cancer. It is a disease that has touched almost everyone in some way, or will in their lifetime. It is a cause I support with all my being!

Bev (froggieb) said...

The Grandparent's kit with the message tin coming in a close second. Great ideas and very creative. Thanks for sharing.

Barb Schram said...

After much deliberation...(and it is still way difficult to pick a favorite because ALL are super) I choose the breast cancer tin Donna made. What a statement of friendship and love that this creation is...just wonderful.

Shannan Teubner said...

Donna gets my vote, as a daughter of a breast cancer survivor, this touched my heart!

Anonymous said...

I like the message tin Evelyn Mahanay e dot mahanay@sbcglobal.net

janet d. said...

I love the Grandma kit! It could also be just for a Mom. These are so versatile!

GrammaStamper (Barb) said...

I have to vote for the Grandparents Survival Kit. I have 2 grandsons approx. 2 yrs. old and I just wish I had thought of this idea. Whenever I need a break, I could stop at Timmie's (Canadian coffee chain) and revive while they colour. Great idea!

creativearts said...

They are all great. I would have to vote for the grandparents tin as I could really use this!

marsha sanderlin said...

I vote for the Grandparent's kit. I also really like the breast cancer tin, but being a "gramie", I can't resist anything for the grandchildren!

Marsha

Carol said...

The breast cancer tin is my favorite and gets my vote. I also love the make-up tin. Very creative ladies!

smm0426 said...

WOW..I'm speechless. I've been stamping for over 4yrs and this is my first post ever. Of course I had a greater teacher. Melanie was my SU Demo and eveything I learned I learned from her. Thanks to all of you for your wonderful comments and votes. I guess I will have to vote for the Grandma tin as well. Since I must admit I suprised my self.nn

lakind said...

I think I like the grandparent's tin because it's so practical, but I love the altered Mother's Day tin! That's really a beautiful piece of artwork!

Bluemoon said...

Oh this is a difficult choice!
I vote for Donna's pretty breast cancer tin, it's very well done, plus a great gift to give, but I must add that I would love Lee's make up tin, for myself! It was hard to choose between something to give someone, or something to fit my lifestyle! They're all Excellent, Congratulations Tin Artists!!

Cassie said...

Definitely the Grandparent's Survival Tin --- although I think it could be a parent's survival tin too! Such a wonderful idea and compact - that's what I really love about it!

Pam said...

My vote is for Donna's tin. Her work is great and it is for a good cause.

Andrea said...

I absolutely love the "What cancer can't do" tin!!!

Tanya said...

I thought the breast cancer tin was a really wonderful reminder, but I too have to vote for the Grandparents tin. What a super idea!!! Now I really wish I had one for my kids!
Thanks for sharing such good ideas!

Whimsey said...

Grandparents tin; what a fabulous idea!!

Angie said...

I vote for Sharon's Grandparent's survival kit. I think I'm going to have to make one, only it will be called "Mommy's Sanity Kit!" and along with the coloring stuff will be a little piece of chocolate, for me!

Jacque (SCS: Petals) said...

My vote goes to the breast cancer tin - what a pick-me-up!

Nancy said...

My vote is for the Breast Cancer Tin.

Cathy said...

I really liked them all but my vote goes to the Naomi tim. My grandkids like to write notes and draw over coloring. My second choice would be the beautiful Mothers Day tim.

Lynda K said...

As a grandmother I think I would have to vote for the Grandparemt Survival Kit...great idea for parents too!

Cheryl said...

Love the pens and post-it tin! Too cute...My 9yo would agree too!

Sharlene said...

These are all wonderful, but my favourite is the grandparents tin.
i'm just a mom of a 3 year old, but i think this is great idea.

i'm going to have to copy this idea for myself when my daughter is a little older and actually likes to colour things in instead of scribble.

Lynn Mercurio said...

My vote goes for the breast cancer tin. I loved her design in such a supportive way, offering encouragement.
Thanks,
Lynn

Tessa (shastess on SCS) said...

They are all so good! I really like the Breast Cancer one, and the Make up one's cute. But as a Momma and a Teacher the grandparent's survial kit gets my vote! It is just ingenious!

Anonymous said...

My vote is for Donna

Jackie said...

These are just great! I can see how you need us to help you decide the winner with this group of projects! I think I have to go for the Breast Cancer one, completely different and unique. I love it!

Ying said...

I have to vote for the grandmom survival kit (crayon/coloring tin). It is such a great idea even though I am not a mother yet. I can see making this for my sister-in-law to use.

Nicole said...

I like all of the tins. The coloring tin is the best idea, a mom or grandmom can take the kit out of her purse and hand it to a child who needs something to do when the mom is running errands.

Linsey said...

Oh My!! They are ALL truly FABulous! I really wish I didn't have to choose only one because I love them all for different reasons! The beauty of it all is that I can CASE every one of them! I will vote for the breast cancer friendship tin, although the make up tin and the Mother's Day planner are equally terrific! The mini coloring pages and crayons is also a brillian idea!

Rach said...

my vote is for the breast cancer tin :)

Betsy said...

They're all totally fabulous, but being a Bare Escentuals gal myself, I gotta go with Lee's Make-up Tin!

Hugs,
Betsy

Lori Barnett said...

All are great! I have to put my vote in for the crayon coloring tin. Since I have 8 grandkids...that would be an awesome gift I could make for them...and when they are done coloring I can refill with more stamped coloring images...or help them make it into a mini album :)

dimpz1230 said...

wow all amazing creations!!! but i love the grandparents survival kit... love it love it love it!

Erin K said...

I'm voting for the crayon/grandparent tin. How cute!

They are all wonderful.

KAP said...

Love the makeup tin. Cute idea!

twinks said...

All are great!

For me, Bee's Message Tin is something I'd love to CASE for my gfs. Love the finished look inside the tin, the little colored pen.

Wendy (songbirdwc) said...

The grandparents tin caught my eye the first time I saw it on your blog - such an original idea!

Sue D said...

Wow, hard to choose just one but I think I will have to go with the Grandparents kit. This would come in so handy to have in your purse.

Anonymous said...

I am voting for the BREAST CANCER tin. Love the idea. Perfect for a quick little pick me up gift! I've been there and done that! I would have loved to recieve a wonderful gift like this! Runner up would be Grandparents Kit. They are all wonderful great work ladies!
