BOOtiful Box

Hello! Happy Monday!

Just had to share this funny story with you. Last night when I was talking to my daughter Lauren (6) before bed, I was telling her about why she had off today:
Me: You usually have school on Mondays but tomorrow you have off.
Lauren: Why?
Me: Because it is Columbus Day.
Lauren: What is that?
Me: A holiday to remember Christopher Columbus--he discovered America.
Lauren: Wow. Is he going to do that tomorrow?

hee! LOVE her!

Speaking of LOVE. I broke down and got a Silhouette over the weekend....and I am so glad I did. This machine is magical :)
I was playing around with it and downloaded this free Cobweb window box from Lori Whitlock. You can find it here. The amazing Lori Whitlock and uber talented Tamara ( Happy Life Crafty Wife Blog) are hosting a decorating contest. Just use either box design, decorate it and enter to win!

Here is my project:



I also used the "Bootiful" sentiment by Lori (available in the Silhouette store). Patterned paper is by Echo Park Paper.

Thanks for stopping by!

I was just talking to someone about the Silhouette last week and saying how wonderful they looked. Alas, I'll have to keep dreaming for now. Love that cute box. Congrats on your purchase.
