Fun box :)

Hi everyone! :) 

Happy happy happy July 1st!! Today is the kick off of our July kit for the Paper Made Bakery!! :) I am IN LOVE with this month's kit ... Classy Lady!!!

 




I was sooooooo inspired by TWO of my fellow DT members that I lifted them both for my creation today!! :) 

Piali made a fun box for her kids with the June kit and Shannon made a travel one!! And I loved them both so much, I decided to make a travel one too :) 

The family and I are heading to Las Vegas this month (I will be attending CHA while the family is swimming away at our condo there! LOL!!) --- soooo yes!! That is a HUGE hint to anyone that is attending CHA and has always wanted to meet BROOKIE ... she will be in Las Vegas with me :) 

Anyhoo... back to my lifting project :)  We will be driving to Las Vegas (it's a 4 hour drive for us) and I have to keep the kids occupied :)  So I made a travel box for the kids :) 

This is the box I started out with :) 




And here is what I made with it using this month's kit :) 





I made them a little Tic-Tac-Toe game :) 

 







And I have added other little goodies to keep Brookie occupied (Adam's 16 ... so the tic-tac-toe will keep him a little occupied! LOL!) :) 








Here is our blog hop order today ---
 
 






Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
