Well hello again! I apologize in advance for being heavy in pics for this post. This thing is hard to photograph!
Can you believe it is the end of March and I we got sent home today for a partial snow day! I am no longer thinking all this white fluffy stuff is pretty!!! I have been working on a SPRING project to help with the depressing and bleak weather.
My intention with this explosion box is to give it to my daughter with her birthday gift. Part of me wants to add more to the box and part of me wants to leave it as is. Decisions decisions.
The animals are all cute with Create A Critter and so are the words in the center. I used one of my punches for the edging on the cover of the box, I didn't like my first cover at all! The paper is all from a K&Company pack... and I LOVE it!!! My sister bought herself a Cricut. She had some questions on how to use the buttons on the top of it. Well, I have a Gypsy so I have no clue how to navigate the buttons on the Expression. So she came and hung out with me to learn how to use the buttons... and created me these critters! You can check out her BRAND NEW blog at Crafty Gator.
At Linda's Creativity the guest designer has challenged us to use our punches. At this point, I only own 1 border punch. My husband got it for me for Christmas. At the time I wondered what in the world I would do with it. Well, I LOVE using it... who would have thought he knew better than me? Don't tell him!!!!
Over at All Sorts Challenge she wants us to make gift boxes... how perfect is this as a gift box? Just tuck a little gift card in or use the box as a gift!
At Creative Time For Me's Throwback Thursday Challenge she tempts us to use any older cartridge.
