treat basket


I finally got around to playing with this box that Cambria showed on her blog and did for SCS this past week. I also played around with using markers on watercolor paper and then take off color and blend with aquapainter. It is fun technique, but need to play with it more to perfect it.
I am making these and some 6 x 6 pages next week for a girls (11 y.o) crafting club. I did have some peppermint patties, but chose to use some jelly beans to fill it.
Both boys home today, one with stomach flu and high temp! I am done with this sickness-flu season!!! I just went through this less than a month ago with them. Plus the hubby is traveling this week. Enough venting, back to sick kids :}
