Bloggers Challenge #64 - DSP



Hello Everyone, this project is pretty simple! I have had a week of Character Building Opportunities and have fought an intense battle! So today, I feel weary - physically and emotionally exhausted and I am needing some restoration time with my family.

I made this box for my special friend Roseanne and I am filling it with a bunch of stamping goodies! I was supposed to go over there this evening, but with my Family Adventures I am having to stay home BUT will still be making this delivery for her. :) I hope she likes it.

This project is a combination of challenges -

On Tuesdays, my friend Courtney hosts Challenges and I am late in participating...because of our adventures. This weeks challenge was to make or alter a box. I originally was going to do the pencil box along with a tutorial, but life got the better of me, so I decided to just alter this one. :) This is one of the Gable Boxes I ordered from U-line. Check out all of the great ideas Courtney's Design team made! They are all fabulous!

The Bloggers Challenge is to use your Designer Specialty Papers. Be sure to check out everyone's wonderful projects. You can click on the right side bar BLOGGERS CHALLENGE to see the participants designs with Designer Paper.

Here are the details of my project:
Stamp Set: All Holidays
Ink and Designer Paper: Tangerine Tango, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip - Hawaii Papaya DP by SU
Accessories: Word Window Punch, Paper Trimmer, Paper Snips, Flower Fusion and Flower Fusion Too, Glue Dots, Old Olive Grosgrain, Stitched Chocolate Ribbon

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a great day! Do not forget to check out everyone's FABULOUS designs!

What a wonderful way to package up goodies. It's a wonderful project and I'm sure your friend will love the stuff inside nearly as much as she loves the box! Awesome job.

GREAT box, Chris!
I hope that you can take a break over the weekend. I can handle physical exhaustion...bet the mental weariness drains the life out of me.

This is wonderful Chris. Your friend should be thrilled with not just the box and the goodies you put into it, but that you took the time out of a challenging week to think of someone other than yourself. God bless....
