  3. Hi Pat,
    What a darling box!!! Those snowmen are too cute! Thanks so much for stopping by my blogs. I'm so glad you found a background that you could use here, it looks quite nice in your new home I think!

  4. EGADS! That's one awesome box!! It's easy to tell that a lot of thought, creativity and time went into making it and it came out beautifully! Thanks for playing with us this week at TMITA and hope to see you at the blog hop next week (and for the regular challenge on Monday!)

  5. Thanks for all the nice comments and feedback on my project from everyone. It was a lot of fun and took some time to do but in my head it made sense to create a storage solution for the photos I plan to get scrapped. Next step is to make card dividers that fit the width of the box and label them, making it easy to store my photos by trip, event, etc. The next shoe box is waiting for the perfect digital stamp. Am planning to make 4 in total, one for each season! That should add some colorful storage to my craft room. :-)

  6. Fun to see you have a blog! Enjoy it! I'll try to check in every once in a while....
