Birthday Treat Box

I am so on the ball here, and am so proud of myself! As soon as Jenna saw this Sophie stamp from Hanna Stamps she started planning her next birthday party. In August! Both girls love all the Riley and Sophie stamps and when they make cards those are the first stamps they reach for. The challenge on the Hanna Stamps forum today is to make anything but a card. Since she has been wanting to get started with these, I decided it would be the perfect time to make some plans. Jenna wants to use this stamp for the invitations and on her treat boxes. She decided to go with the manicure/pedicure theme here and plans to give her friends nail polish and manicure supplies. The template for this box came from a technique challenge on SCS a few weeks ago. I cute out the box with bright pink card stock and then coved parts of it with this orange and pink paper. The image is colored with Copics and Prisma markers. I used micro glass beads on the water to look like soapy bubbles.

I had an insane day to finish off my crazy week so I am going to grab my heating pad and crash in front of the TV for the rest of the night. I hope you have a great weekend.

I also want to say thanks to everyone that leaves comments for the girls when I let them post their creations. It means so much to them, so thank you for encouraging their blossoming artistic talents.
