To the One I Love - Explosion Box

Hi everyone! This is my contribution for the blog hop The Cuttlebug Spot is a part of. : ) Jannie's (member of the TCS DT) project,  inspired me to make an explosion box for the hop. Thanks for the idea Jannie!!! I have always wanted to make an explosion box but I didn't know what to put in it. I was digging through some boxes in my closet today and found these pictures of me and John. They are just pictures from some of our trips.  I just did one layer for this project and did some journaling behind the pictures.

I am not a lover of the purples or the lavenders, but I bought the DCWV Latte Collection for its patterns! I love stripes and florals. The whole collection is nothing but that!!! I used a Basic Grey stamp set for the sentiment on top of the box and I used Inkadinkado's Chelsea Alphabet to emboss I LOVE YOU inside.

The flower is handmade. I made a huge batch of these flowers in the summer while my craft room was being worked on to keep me from getting too stressed out. I went to Archiver's one day and bought all kinds of glimmer mists and slaved myself into working on these flowers.

The blog hop is now going on, and we have been told that The Cuttlebug Spot will be giving away a prize. : ) So head on over there and join in the fun!
