The challenge this week on A Spoonful of Sugar is
Anything but a card!
Very good timing as I bought a bracelet for my daughter's birthday pressie but it came in a boring box. I covered the box with pretty paper (wouldn't do that again, much easier and quicker to make a new box from scratch) added a Bella, this one is so my daughter, and some pretty embellishments. Didn't go overboard as she is a teenager and hey, that just wouldn't be cool or she wouldn't care! I was told this morning she doesn't care if she has a cake today! She had a huge birthday party here on saturday night so I think she is suffering from an anti-climax, that and exhaustion as they had 5 hours sleep on saturday night, if they were lucky!
If you were wondering where I was all weekend, I had a houseful of teenagers from thursday night to sunday afternoon! I hardly got out of the kitchen! We did them burgers and pizzas at the party and when we put them on the table they all ran for them like they hadn't seen food in a week! Can you imagine 50 hungry teens running at you?
There is some fabulous blog candy on offer to one lucky participant kindly donated by Dottydocrafts. Pop on over to the see the prize and also the fabulous creations by the rest of the design team, I nearly didn't want to add mine they are so amazing!
