Olivia’s Special Box

I wanted to make something special for my niece Olivia’s upcoming baptism.  I wanted something girly, but not necessarily pink and frilly.  So can you believe that I made this box using Halloween paper?  You bet!  I used paper from the new “Moonlight” paper pack along with the “It’s Your Day” stamps.  And I love how it turned out.  

Top view, with butterflies and more!

Front view -- maybe Olivia will save a few giggles inside when she's older.

Stamped some love right on the ends.

The inside is special too!

The stamp originally said "This is our story" -- I modified it slightly to make it right for Olivia.

That’s one thing I really love about the new CTMH seasonal paper packs – they are beautifully designed to reflect the holiday, but they are versatile enough to be used for just about anything, at any time of year!
