Box Of doom

Hi Everyone & welcome to Theme Day Thursday!
For Today's project I had to make something  from
The Box Of Doom!!!
What is the box of doom you ask?
Well it is when Erica sends you some paper
that is not something that most people would buy.
If we are late posting something or we miss a post
we are punished!! 
Don't worry it's NOT that bad!
We are given these papers and we have to
sign up and make something with them.
This  is  really not  my style of paper at all
but I think I made it work.
And I really don't see it as a punishment I  see
it as working outside your safe zone.
Or trying something new!

So here is my paper that I got.

I know it's really not the bad, but not  something that I would
have bought.
Once I made up my mind what I wanted to do. 
I love the way it turned out.
First I found what I think it the perfect picture for this paper.
Then I got to work on the layout.
I cut 2 of this wagon out from Paper Doll Dress up
Then I cut the barrel out also from Dress up.

I inked them up, and used some foam squares.
Then I added the picture of me, my mom, & my daughter.
This was taken At Pigeon Forge TN it was really fun.
I also taught that the picture needed a little more.
So I cut this flourish thing from Divine Wedding. 

And here is the finished layout.

And here is a close up of the picture.

Thanks for stopping by.  Now please check out some more projects like mine at
