Boxx newsletter time.....

17 January 2010

I always love seeing the Boxx newsletter finally hit my inbox..... and even though I already know what I'm contributing.....its still a buzz to see what else is filling the newsletter this month.

This month again......Janelle and I had fun choosing the B.O.Y (Book of You) kit.... and I think we did a fab job (am I allowed to say that....hehe.... )
I just loved the Christmassy feel of the papers and bits...even though not all of them were traditional.

(15 months) -
"A note to Bella.... this year you will be 15 months old at Christmas ....we can already tell how much you love the festive season...... you try to eat the baubles.....bob your head to the music......point and watch the Christmas lights.....and toddle around dragging this chain of beads everywhere.....they are your new favourite toy......I'm sure you will be the highlight of our Christmas you Bell.....Nan"
(Good enough to eat) -"you just cant resist those baubles "

Then because I just loved this kit....and couldn't stop....I scrapped some more....
( b ) - "without a doubt this is my favourite shot form the family Christmas shoot we had this year"
...and a couple of cards......

And last newsletter contribution was this easy peasy drink coaster gift idea ....
They are so simple to make.... Just some store bought coasters from a cheap shop..... a light sand... some pattern paper and a cute photo.....and finally a few coats of a clear sealer....
Have a great Sunday..... whatever you are doing.....
I think we are heading to the River....should be fun...
