A Present For Santa - Meljen Challenge and Release

Hi ya Everyone!
  I'm so excited about this special release at Meljen's Design this week!  The images are so very cute and because I love all of them I couldn't pick just one of them - so, I chose all of them (ok, not the Santa's Sleigh, but I tried it was just a bit big for this project - but don't worry I'll use him on another!).  I can't wait for you te see what the DT did too - their projects are fantastic!  Ok, here's the release:


Now, I've been tossing the idea around of making an explosion box since seeing this tutorial:  "Explosion Box Class"  This release gave me the perfect opportunity. 

The best part is my girls loved it and we decided to turn it into a box for Santa's cookies. 

I colored all the images with my Copics, cut each one out and pasted it to a page in the box. 

I added stickles to a number of the pages too.  I love this and hopefully Santa will too.  Now, head over to Whimsy Stamps and pick up some of the new images and join in the challenge this week - Red, Green and Gold.  My gold is a bit hard to see in my pics but it's there!!  Then stop by Meljen's Design and submit your project for the red, green, gold challenge!! 

Enjoy!
