  1. 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!

  7. 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!

  23. 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)

    ReplyDelete
  24. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  25. 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! :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  27. 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.

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

    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!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I vote for:

    Donna Baker

    All of them ROCK though.

    ReplyDelete
  31. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  32. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love them all, but my vote goes to Sharon Mcnair! Thanks for the chance to win!

  34. 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*

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

    ReplyDelete
  36. 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!

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

    ReplyDelete
  38. 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!!!

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

    ReplyDelete
  40. 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!!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. 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!

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

    ReplyDelete
  43. 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.

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

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  47. 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!

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

    ReplyDelete
  49. 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!

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

    ReplyDelete
  51. 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

    ReplyDelete
  52. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  53. 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!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. 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!

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  57. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Grandparents tin; what a fabulous idea!!

    ReplyDelete
  59. 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!

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

    ReplyDelete
  61. My vote is for the Breast Cancer Tin.

    ReplyDelete
  62. 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.

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  65. 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.

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

  67. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  68. My vote is for Donna

    ReplyDelete
  69. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  70. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  71. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  72. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  73. my vote is for the breast cancer tin :)

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

    Hugs,
    Betsy

    ReplyDelete
  75. 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 :)

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

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

    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.
