4th Anniversary Blog Hop

Hi, everyone!!  Jo's Scrap Shack blog is turning 4 and we have two fun-filled days of blog hopping to celebrate.  The challenge to us was to create anything but a card.  Since this is a birthday celebration, I created this beautiful gift box and card combo:

The box was created using the Compleat-ly template from My Time Made Easy by Lauren Meader.  It opens up to hold two 4.25x6 inch boxes. 
 Inside the bottom box, I created a little insert that holds a pendant and set of earrings that I made for my husband's step-grandmother.
The box size is perfect for holding an A2 sized card, so I will be placing the card I made and the cards my three girls made for her in the top box. 
The next stop on the hop is Georgiana, but before you go, here are the guidelines for the hop:


  • The blog hop will consist of (2) days, May 3rd & May 4th and will be going live at12AM Eastern Standard Time (NY, USA).
  • All hoppers must leave a comment and subscribe to each designer's blog to be eligible to win prizes
  • Hoppers will have until 11:59PM on May 6th to leave comments and winners will be announced on May 7th on the Jo's Scrap Shack blog.
