A Box full of Goodies

It's 4:00am and I am awake because my crazy daughter who couldn't sleep woke me up playing the Wii. She wasn't being all that loud but her remote gave her away...they like to make noise! I think she has butterflies about her performance today. The first of 5 shows is this morning for the Wizard of Oz.
I wanted to share this fun box I made about a week ago or so. I bought the fabulous tutorial that Becky made! It's worth every penny!! I wanted to make one right away but was limited on my time (see previous paragraph...Wizard of Oz also keeps the mom busy too!) I didn't do any stamping. Instead I broke into my new Loop to Loop Rub-Ons. I love them...I wish they would offer these and the paper from this bundle in the catalog, besides being in the Hostess Set. {sigh} These are just 2 of the 5 cards I made. I also added to the box, York Peppermint Patties, Ghirardelli Chocolates, Hershey Milk Chocolate Sticks with Caramel and decorated address labels for the envelopes that are under the cards. The paper is from the now retired Hostess Bundle. (it wasn't retired when I made the box) I added some 1 inch chocolate ribbon and 2 buttons in the middle to decorate the top of my box.
Ok...I have got to go lay back down and see if I can sleep! I have an hour before me alarm goes off! yikes!
chat at ya later....Have a great day!
what's in it?...

paper...baja breeze, kiwi kiss, pink pirouette, whisper white, chocolate chip, Holiday Happenings dsp

ink...baja breeze, kiwi kiss, pink pirouette

accessories...silver brads, kiwi and baja breeze ribbon, buttons, chocolate ribbon, olive brad

other...transparency, distresser, watercolor brush, rub-on tool, sticky strip, scallop circle punch, circle punches, paper piercer and mat pack

**So many of you asked about my clip art on my baptism cards (a few posts below) The clipart is from a CD I bought 6 or 7 years ago. It's called Primary Partners. I have no idea it's still available but I bet if you look online or at a Dessert Book Store you could find something similar!**
