I put together this box from Neat and Tangled and some kids from Mama Elephant jumped in. All of the sudden W+9 stars and confetti sprang out, PTI banners dropped down, and we had a PARTY!
I cut a channel down the back of the box die to create a slider.

I wanted to join in on some challenges this week. Virginia's View has a challenge going on this month that is all about creating a focal point. With a little masking, I heat embossed the stars stamp from W+9 A Pocketful many times in a semicircle around where I knew the box was going to sit. That helped create a direction towards my focal point - the box. I then used the resist technique, which is the challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge: Totally Resistible, to emphasize the white embossing. I used the colors from Marker Pop's current color challenge for the papers, ink, and Copic colors. I really love the combination!
Thanks for coming over to visit. I hope you have a wonderful day filled with happy surprises.
