ROMANTIC VALENTINE BOX = CHALLENGES


Hey Everyone! Well, I am getting ready to leave for a three week vacation that hubby and I will really enjoy this year. After all the hard work we put into Mike and Katie's home we need a little 'ole fasdhioned R&R! We will start off with a cruse and end up at Disney World and I cannot wait! Anyway, I know I am going to suffer from withdrawals from stamping so I am going to try and bring some things with me. However, I am sure I will forget something to make something with ...you know how that goes! So, today I decided to do some challenges and made a frilly, pretty, romantic, over the top girly valentine box. I love making furled ribbon by heating it with my heat gun, doesn't it make the best ruffle ever! Then I used up some of my pretties pieces to add more frill! Oh, and don't forget the NEW punch from Stampin'UP! Pinking Hearts....I hope you like the box and if you just need to make one you can always go to my sidebar and pick up the instructions! Have a great day~
CHALLENGES:
Color Throw Down~pink, blue,kraft
Stampin Royalty~ anything but a card
ABC~ something new (punch)

Oh Gosh I am so far behind, I didn't even think about doing that with ribbon. You are the ribbon queen anyway in my eyes. The box is wonderful, and so girly girl. I hope you have a wonderful trip. Remember all of us, in this cold winter weather, and get some extra rays of sun for us.
