A2 Box

Good Evening, Everyone!

Sorry, I have been MIA for a few days. As I mentioned in my previous post, my daughter has been sick. She had high fever and two blisters so she literally couldn't eat or swallow. Her temperature is normal now but it will take another few days for the blisters to go away. But my son (I think he got it from my daughter) still has the high fever since last night. So if you have kids, you can imagine how worried, how stressful these last few days has been for me and my hubby. We practically had/have no sleep. Anyway....

I made this A2 box since last week but haven't gotten a chance to post until now. I made some cards to go with it but forgot to take picture of them. Oh well... Maybe I will share those some other time.

Once again, I made a ribbon rose. They are just so easy to make. Maybe I am going to make a bunch and share some. :D Hmm...maybe I'll randomly select from my followers. Or if you would like to have a couple, let me email, comment, whatever. I'll send you some.

Okay, for this easy breezy box, I managed to cover a few challenges.
1. Project Tuesday. I think I am late for this challenge. But I have a great time making this box and thank you so much for the wonderful, easy tutorial. I think I am going to link some tutorials on my blog. The ones I like.
2. Stamps and Smiles: This fun sketch.
3. Paperplay Challenge: Paper Roses "Use a flower (or flowers) on your project, but they can't be bought flowers, you have to make them yourself!!!" I know I didn't make my flower with papers. I thought I would submit it and share anyway.
4. DU2DS: Emboss. Yup, I used my embossing folder here.
Papers: DCWV Citrus Stack patterned paper, DCWV Spring Cardstock
Sentiment: digiment
Ink: Momento dew drop (new sprout)
Ennoblement: ribbon, gem brad
Tools/Other: Cuttlebug, embossing folder, circle punch

Thanks for stopping by! As always, I love to know what you think and appreciate your comments.
