Happy Thursday!

The week is quickly winding down. We are only 2 days away from leaving on vacation! I am not sure if I will have time to pre-post while I am away so if you find I have gone missing, I am just soaking up some sun in Myrtle Beach. (at least I hope there will be sunshine!)
Spellbinders is having a party over at Splitcoast and you all are invited! Check out all the details here. You can enter in 3 categories: card, lay out or altered item. Winners will be chosen randomly from each category to receive $50.00 in products from their store. You know what that means?? Everyone has a chance to win, not just the best. What have you got to lose?

I needed some packaging so I decided to gussy up a gable box that I purchased from Paper Trey. Yes, that is more of that October Afternoon paper, I am stretching my 2 sheets as far as I can. I used a whole set of scallop circle dies to cut out one of each size of aqua mist card stock. I ran them through the CB with the Swiss Dots folder, sponged the edges and layered them. No, I am not center challenged, lol, I purposely staggered the circles for a more random look. The leaves are ovals that were folded in half and crimped. I did a bit of zig zag stitching along the bottom edge and added some Thickers letters for my sentiment. Likey?? I do!
Thanks for visiting!
