Thanks for stopping by my humble blog. Today I have a box I made for my daughter who is starting her first semester of college tomorrow. I thought she may need some chocolate to get her through some rough spots. She is alot like her mom after all. :)
I used an adorable image from Mo's called Trinity . Isn't she the cutest thing? As always I painted her with my acrylic paints. I used paper from 2 different DCWV stacks. One is Nana's Nursery (boy), the other is Nana's Kitchen. The blue paper on the front is actually a page from my dictionary that I photocopied. I used the page with the definition for "school". The buttons and beads are from my stash. The bow (I know its hard to see) is made from a thin strip of green bridal netting. It has a shimmer to it and looks great in person.
Another picture of Trinity. Too cute :)
The inside cover has more of my "text" paper. I like this idea. I may use it again in the future :)
This is the other side of the inside. It is a box I made. It's about 1 1/2" deep. The spine (in orange) is about 1 3/4" wide to accommodate my embellishments. I used my Nesties to cut the circles. The box is yellow. I cut a piece of patterned paper for the top and the inside of the top. The circle is filled with a piece of acetate.
Here's the back (or maybe I should say bottom). The border punch is from Martha Stewart... I love those things. I used my custom stamp which I loooooove!! And, more of the text paper.
Several layers on all 4 sides have different colored Stickles. I love that stuff too.
I will be entering this in the following challenges:

CLP Challenge Blog - Sketch
I was going to enter the challenge for Cupcake Challenge, but unfortunately I was too late :(
Thanks for taking a peek!
