Easel Gift Box

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you had a great weekend, and I hope all the guys had a wonderful Father's Day! Yesterday morning, Chris golfed with our son Kyle and my dad. In the evening, we went to Chris's parents house for dinner to celebrate Father's Day with his family. It was a good day! :)

I got a lot of stamping done over the weekend, but nothing I can show you yet! I did come across a project I had posted over at SCS but not here, so I'll share it with you today! :) I made this little gift box with Jody Morrow's Chalkboard Easel Template. She designed it herself, and you can see some great examples of how she used it on her blog HERE. The best part is that it is available as a FREE download from My Favorite Things -- you can find it HERE!


I had created this easel box a few weeks ago for the first My Favorite Challenge, which was hosted by Jody. The challenge was to use her Chalkboard Easel Template -- you can find all of the challenge projects HERE. For mine, I used Owls and Bluebells on the front, and I colored with Copics. I really like the way it turned out -- I just love the colors!

That's all for now! I still have some samples to finish, and I'm hoping to get time for some "just because" stamping, too! Thanks so much for the visit today -- I really appreciate it! :)

Have a great day!
Christina
