My First Box

Hello my blogger friends :) I am so excited to share my first box that I made. I am so thankful for being able to be here again this month with all of the other awesome designers. We are getting to be quite the team, THANKS to Miss Sheila ;)

This is the cutest project, I loved it so much that I am working on one for a baby shower that I am going to in June. This one was made for a friend's birthday. I saw that Abby from http://www.scrapbookaholicbyabby.com/  posted this on Peachy Keen stamps, as she was a guest designer and I absolutely fell in love with it. She mentioned that she followed the video from Cricut Chick (I found it on You Tube). So I decided to give it a try. It is very easy to make. I love finding different things that crafters come up with. I know we all scraplift or craftlift from time to time, right? Just make sure to give credit to where you find these amazing creations. That's how we learn different things. I am amazed at this talent out there and am grateful to learn from so many of you. I hope you will check out Cricut Chick's video and make one for someone or one for yourself. Each section, which is 4, I put my friend's favorite candy, jelly belly jelly beans, LOL (say that 5 times fast) into cellophane bags and tied them with curly ribbon. For the baby shower one, I am going to put different baby items in those sections, the ideas are endless. Cricut Chick did one for Thanksgiving and mentioned filling a section with walnuts and putting a nut cracker into another section, very cute idea. I forgot to take a picture of the bottom, it's just a square and I punched out a label and wrote To and From.

I hope you enjoyed visiting me, I sure did enjoy the company ;) Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and as always, thank you Sheila for having me ;)
