Such a SLACKER!!!!

Well Hello There!

My goodness.....I am such a slacker! I can't believe how long it has been since the last time I actually did a "post" on my blog! And ya know.....it's NOT like I haven't been stampin' and creating.....I guess I just have been occupied with other things (such a lame-o excuse! :-)
Here I have posted one of my VERY favorite things to do when giving a baby gift - which is to decorate a simple "cigar box" (bought at my lovely local Michael's) with yummy DP, ribbon and the baby's name. Then I ususally tuck in a little something special for the baby - it's kind of like a double gift for not only is the box a gift in it's self but then there are little treasures to find inside. As you can see from the top pic I put inside this box some sweet mini shoes (because that's what little babies wear) and a precious onesie - you just want to squeeze the gift (and the baby too) it's just soooooooooo cute!
For the box this is what I used to decorate it......
*Paper - Rose Red and Very Vanilla CS, Raspberry Tart DP
*Ink - Rose Red Ink
*Accessories - Paper Piercer,Sponges, Twill Tape, Sticky Strip, Dimensionals, 1 3/8", 1 1/4" Circle Punches, Scallop Circle Punch
So much fun to make and give away!
Thanks for stoppin' by,
