Hi all!!! Whew!!! This was one HECTIC weekend, sheesh!! Our kids have the whole four days off with today being Veteran's Day (HAPPY VETERAN'S DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!) and so I had my nieces and nephews for the whole weekend - yep, they ate, played, slept here at my home all three of the last days!! Eeeek - I don't know how people with eight kids do it, I was pulling my hair out by this morning - LOL! But, they seemed to have a good time and we took them to see Madagascar II yesterday, which was a cute movie. Then, pizza afterward and home to their parents!! I need a vacation now, teehee!! Needless to say, my big plans to stamp all weekend went flying out the weekend and I will be stamping my heart out this weekend getting ready for the craft fair. So, let me share a project I was FINALLY able to complete: Remember, the garland I posted here? Well, I made a decorated box for it so that it can be stored once the holiday is over and not get destroyed. I made this for my upcoming craft fair so I am hoping it is a hit! That first picture is of the top of the box. I tried to keep to the same theme and color scheme as the actual garland and I must say, I am very happy with how it turned out! Here is a picture of the inside with the garland stored and the lid off - isn't it cute??!!! I used a template that I have for the box since it fits an A2 size card perfectly. Also, there is a super tutorial by Beate on Splitcoast on this box as well so check it out!! So, this is my project for today, I am so glad I finally got one done, lol!!! I will leave you with the recipe and I AM going to be stampin all day today so it will be a fun day and I will have some more fun stuff to share with you tomorrow! Till then - Happy Stampin!
