Well my baby boy and my youngest turns 18 today - he graduates from High School in just over a month and next fall my house is going to be a very quiet place!!!
I am very proud of my young man - not only is he smart and good looking (which he had no control over) but he is honest, hard working (for the most part - after all he is a teenager :) and he is strong both physically and mentally and has a good heart which he does have control of!!
Happy Birthday Jack!!!!
Well todays project is one of 2 baby gift boxes I finished off this morning - showing you the boy one today - naturally!!!
I take a box - usually an old cigar box and cover it with scrapbook papers and also cover a 6 by 6 inch chipboard album with matching papers and then decorate it with stamps, ribbons and whatever I feel like and matches the 'theme'
The main image on this box is from Sweet Pea Stamps - 'Mother and baby boy' by Conie Fong and is colored with prismacolor pencils. I colored her up 3 times - one for the box, one for the book and one for a matching card.
I cut the main image and the next layer out with Spellbinders dies and the brown layer was cut from a craft core cardstock, embossed and sanded off. I edged the main layer with a gold metallic pen.
I added a couple matching ribbons and some dots made with tulip fabric paint - and added a ribbon to the lid to make it easier to lift the lid.
The papers are all denim looking and some browns and I edged them all with walnut stain ink.
