It's about time !!

Hi all,

well I'm sure you were wondering where I was gone all this time. I would love to say I was away doing something nice but no I was at home with no Internet for almost a month :(:( I have finally got back online and just in time it seems as there are some fab blog hops on at the moment I have just finished the 1st Birthday Blog-Hop over at the dt makes were just fab!. I am now going to pop on ova to Kenny K's blog for the Blog Hop but before I go I have a little make to show you all this is my very 1st Box with easel card top of course it is not my own design I seen a lovely one over at and just tweaked the measurements and placement of drawers to fit my design. I used a kenny k digi stamp colored with promarkers,which I cut out with my nesties, the paper is from a forever friends paper pack and the card stock is from the papermill, the punched out flower border and butterfly are from martha stewart and the flower, little button brads on the drawers and butterfly charm are from my really old stash so don't know where they came from and finally the rhinestones are from the papermania range.

So here is my 1st easel treat box I'm going to put some yankee tealights in the drawers and give it to my bessie friend as a lil pressie :) 

 Challenges I'm entering :
