Thinking of You ...

. . . and candy too!
Hello my friends!
I had two things on my agenda today ...
Play the 'Things with Wings' challenge at Fussy and Fancy (before time runs out)
make one of the adorable treat boxes I spotted over on the No Time To Stamp Blog.

How adorable is this little nugget box!
And what a fabulous gift idea for ANY occasion!

I have so many beautiful design papers (can you say hoarder?) that I didn't know where I wanted to begin ... but I knew it had to have butterflies on it since that was going to be my 'Thing With Wings' element for the challenge.    Of course I had not one but TWO packs of the beautiful DCWV 'the Mariposa matstack' that has butterflies all over it.  But, then I spotted the Paper Studio 'Kirby Teesdale Studio' beautiful vintage paper pack and my decision was made.

You can bet your booties I'll be making more of these in the future!
