A Cutie Patootie Christmas Box!

Hi there! Just popping in to share a sweet Christmas gift box with you since I will be in Washington D.C. all day tomorrow with my dd's field trip and I had planned to post it tomorrow (and I need to link it so many times). We are visiting the White House and the Capitol and a few more stops along the way so it will be lots of fun! As many times as I have been to D.C., I have never been to either of those two monuments.

So, I couldn't wait to play along at the first challenge for the new Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge Blog and I finally had a little time this past weekend to make my project. The challenge is to make a 3x3 box using one of Elisabeth's images. The adorable image I used is called Eden's 2nd Christmas and she can found on Elisabeth's blog...HERE! I simply love the sweet face and all the little details of this image right down to the snowflakes on her little sleeper.

I colored the image with my Copics and added just a few layers of paper for the top of my box. I wanted the image to be the main focus and stand out so I didn't really embellish the box top. Except for this great big bow that makes every gift special! I did add a few bits of red Stickles on the holly in her hair and the ornaments on the little tree. Some Glossy Accents on the ornament she is reaching for gives it a little shine too and matches the shiny ornaments on my dp from Imaginisce I used for the box top!

    I also wanted to apologize for not stopping by sooner, I've just been so swamped and haven't had the time for leaving comments. I've just checked out all of your recent projects and they are all always!! Sorry I can't comment on them all. But I did want to thank you for always stopping by my blog and leaving me some love. It means a lot to me and I've felt bad that I've not been able to return the favor. I plan to start fresh from here and do better about visiting you more often!!
