MAWTT Challenge 86 - Not a card, but for a little girl

Why do I make my life more difficult than it has to be sometimes? I set the challenge this week over at MAWTT and decided we would do something different to a card, but I lost total inspiration. We chose some digis from Robyn's Fetish who are sponsoring us this week and this is what I came up with.

Two projects, mainly because I have 2 small grandaughters and didn't feel I could make something for one and not the other. So here is a little notebook - come colouring book for the 2 1/2 year old and a little altered box for the 4 1/2 year old.



I think it's pretty easy to see supplies and techniques on these, but do email me if you have a question or leave one in the comments below.

Can you guess what's in the box?

There's a teaser picture for you, but I am sure you will make it out. It just fits perfectly with the image and the girls will enjoy eating them. Oooh another big clue there.

I hope your week is going well and have got some crafty things planned for the weekend. Ken and I are going to see friends and have some fun at their karaoke gathering on Saturday night. I also need my eyes tested and new glasses so that's on the agenda for Saturday too.

Take care.


luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

Well, I'm sure the girls will love these....even more if there is candy involved! I'll be seeing my grandkiddies soon...one for tonight and tomorrow night, and then the other three until the following Sunday. We are really looking forward to this....but I'm sure we'll be toast by the end of it all! They have a way of wrapping us around their little fingers. LOL
Have a great weekend!
