A Round Top Box Full O'Fun!

Pin It

Happy Friday, race fans! And happy "Frank's Birthday," too! Frank is my handsome and desperately darlin' son. And yes, it IS a national holiday ... on my planet, anyway.

So, today's paper project was created for SCS's "Try a New Technique" challenge. And it's a gift for Sheila ... as she's decided if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. So all these l'il catseye ink pads are for her stampin' stash. I just hope she doesn't decide to start bloggin', too! Lord knows I give her enough ammo to internationally skewer me too. Sheila's funny but I'm ... ummm, crazy funny too.

This is such a fun project ... and sooooooo easy, even a child I could do it! Just think of all the l'il packaging projects you can create using this kewl template. So, thanks Splitcoast, for yet another fun challenge. For all the challenge deets, and to download the .pdf round top box template, clicky
HERE. As always, you can clicky on the photo for the ginormous view.

I printed the template out on card stock from October Afternoon's "County Fair" collection and fussy cut the flowers and leaves to embellish my box. I stamped my sentiment, from SU, adhered it to a BBQ skewer, tied on some ribbon, and tah, dah! Easy-peasy!

So, in my new spirit of kindness to Sheila ... I kid ... she just hasn't done anything really stupid or really funny in the last 24 hours, so here's a l'il something that was published in the Palm Beach Post:

"We wish to apologise for the error in the Thursday, February 19, 2009, edition, in which we stated that 'Mr. Fred N ...." is a Defective in the Police Force.' This was a typographical error. We meant, of course, that Mr. N .... is a Detective in the Police Farce." We regret any confusion this error may have caused."

To live here is to love it here ...

Beautiful project, Deb. Love the way you let the leaves over hang the sides.

So I guess Sheila gets this and not me? Why am I jealous over a figment of your imagination?

Great work, BTW!
