Bloggers Challenge: Bag or Box


Happy Friday All. Thanks for stopping by today. What a wild night of weather we are having here in New England. It has been raining for most of the week, and then last night, the winds started whipping up something fierce. The lights were flickering, and we could hear things slamming into the house. My hubby and I decided to grab the kids and put them in our bed, just in case the lights went out, or perhaps the HUGE pine tree in our front yard decided to come down. Needless to say, neither happened (phew), but yes, our yard is a MESS with broken tree branches, leaves, and our driveway is blocked by a HUGE limb from our HUGE pine tree in the front yard. Luckily, hubby is home today to clean that up (hehehe).

Well, the weather hasn't been the best this week for the kids Feb vacation, so we haven't done much, but I think we will finish the week off and take them to the movies today. Not real sure what we'll see, but it's something to do.

So, like I said, it's FRIDAY, and Friday ='S bloggers Challenge. This weeks challenge was to create a bag or box. Because I am almost always last minute Nelly, I waited until 8:30 last night to create my project, and had know idea what I would make until my good friend Kim guided me to some pretty cool templates on the Clear & Simple stamps blog. I used the template for the XOXO box and and decorated. This was probably this fastest project I have in months . I used my new Early Bird Cosmo Cricket paper (which I LOVE), one of my sentiment stamps, a little random ribbon and Viola, finished. I think it turned out pretty cute, even know I didn't color anything (hehehe).
Well, that is all she wrote today, Again, thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous weekend. Happy Creating!!!!!
