Going Grey with Scrap-Creations Challenge: 3 Layers

Happy Valentines Day!!!!!! Although hubby and I don't celebrate Valentines Day (pretty much a hallmark holiday), we do have fun doing things with the kids.  This year Ryan's (my son) class is having a Valentines box decorating contest, and because I went all out when my daughter had hers, I decided I would do the same for him.  The only problem, he is a boy and every idea I came up with was "pretty and pink", so I when I really thought about what Ryan likes, or should I say LOVES, I immediately thought HOCKEY....Boston Bruins.  Yeap, I created a hockey rink Valentines box, not supah Valentines day "ish", but supah cute and he loves it:

I used a postal box for the base,  recycled  foam on top of that, and then created the "ice" rink with card stock, printed out the "B"'s logo, and the drew the lines. I used the computer of the bruins players and printed and cut them out. They are standing with Popsicle sticks, and then the outer rink is made with Popsicle sticks, card stock, and transparency's.  The bottom has a cut out that says "penalty box" and that is where the valentines goes. I know, I completely went overboard, but Ryan loves it and that is al that matters.I also created these for both the kids classes. Super easy, just a little time consuming.  Good thing I had

two little helpers :) 
   So, the entries for last weeks "valentines Day" challenge were fantastic.  I just love how creative you all are....You seriously impress me every week!  As always, I hate picking the TOP 3 because it is just so hard, but a girl has got to do what a girl has to do.  So without further A du, last weeks TOP 3 are:
