For the letter B, I chose to alter a gift box that was really sturdy that my mom gave for Christmas two years ago. I had just participated in a handmade flower swap at CUC - check out our link at the right - and needed something to store all of the flowers in so that they wouldn't get smushed. So, I painted the edges of the box first. Then I used Echo Park pp and even the packaging front page to embellish and cover the box. The label cover on the front was also part of the packaging. I covered the title of the paper with a flower and then added the "handmade" alpha stickers. Love that paper line too!

I am a huge sketch person! Totally love them and when CUC introduced their Sketchy Saturday, well I could hardly resist! This week's sketch was by Julie Bonner and was totally inspiring. I created this adorable layout about my niece who is too cute for words. Not only that, I reused some Prima Packaging - plastic doilies from a flower package background. It was too pretty to throw away!
