I Love This Time of Year!

I love it when it is still cool out, but the sun is shining. We get so incredibly hot here during the summer so I just feel great when I can have my window open and look out to see the sunshine. I would be happy to have it this way eight months of the year!

I hope everyone is having a good Wednesday. I certainly had a productive Tuesday! As those of you who read my blog know, I am a huge fan of Laura Denison. Anyway, she made an incredible Valentine's Day box. I watched her Ustream videos on the making of her box and then bought the instructions. You can see her Valentine's Day box and mini album at the end of her February 14th post and also at her February 10th posting ... here.

I have now completed two boxes ... one for Curt for the dogs ... and one like her Valentine's Day box.

First, the Valentine's Day box. I absolutely love this box. I found some old paper I had and I don't even know who it was by. I was just glad to go into my "paper stash" and finally use something from there ... ha!

Here is the top of the box. I made a paper rosette for the top and used some Prima flowers. I used a knob, locket and key from Tim Holtz ideal-ology line. I also used Ranger Perfect Pearl Mist for the top to give it some glimmer!

This just shows the inside of the box.

This is the back of the box and I made another paper rosette and used two papers for that one. I also put a circle craft mirror in the middle and added a pearl on top of that.

Now, here is the box I made for Curt.

This is the top of the box with another paper rosette with two papers from the box and a cute felt puppy face from Pebbles.

This shows the inside of the box and the mini album I made to go inside the box. Also, I had cut off the front flap on this box to show the dog on the front panel. I then glued that flap inside the box ... you can see it below the stripes.

Here are some of the pages in the mini album. I used my Cricut to make the tags and put a dog bone on the top to help pull the tags out.

I had so much fun making these and I thank you for dropping by to see them.
