SU! Big Shot Contest Winner

Hello Everyone!  So I am going to start this new year by tooting my own horn!  Yes, I know that is bragging but I can't help it!  So here are the details:

Stampin' Up! had a contest for their Demonstrators.  To enter the contest you had to make an item using the Sizzix Big Shot die cut machine and post a photo of it to to Stampin' Connection (a SU! Demo only web site).  Stampin' Up! then selected 10 winners to receive a $50 SU! shopping spree.  This contest was open to all demonstrators in the US and Canada.  There were a total of 1,128 entries in the contest.

Big Shot ContestI just happen to be 1 of the 10 winners!!!  Woooohooooooo! 

The photo that I submitted was for my Big Shot Boxing Class.  In this class we made themed boxes for September (sunflower), October (Frankie & pumpkin), November (turkey) and December (Frosty & Rudolf). 

Sorry this photo is not very good but it is the only one I have.  I would take another photo but I have already given half of them away. 

I haven't taken advantage of my shopping spree yet.  There is so much to choose from.  Should I get items from the new Occasions Mini Catalog?  A couple new stamp sets from the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog that I wouldn't normally purchase?  Or do I get supplies that I need such as Whisper White card stock and SNAIL adhesive?  So many decisions, I can't decide. 

What do you think I should do?  What is your favorite item that you haven't gotten yet?  Leave me a note with what you would do. 

Happy Stamping!
~  Sharon
