Well, for the very first challenge over on the Around the World Stampin’ Up! Challenges blog, we could only choose Celebrate as our first theme couldn’t we?
For us, it is so momentous; the inaugural launch of what we hope will become a fabulous challenge twice a month, and we all so look forward to welcoming entries from everyone. Not just other demonstrators, but everyone who has a love of stamping, crafting and papercraft.
But in my case, I’m very much a ‘box’ girl. I think the challenge for my own personal journey will be coming up with sketches each month for cards, but I stayed true to myself this month, and how else could you celebrate? Well, with a bottle of Champagne of course!
I do have a video that goes with this, and will show you all my dimensions, and how I made the box, so I hope you’ll enjoy sitting back and spending a few minutes watching it. Perhaps with a glass of Champagne? Or maybe a coffee if it’s early morning…! (click here!)
I’ve used a mixture of Christmas and Birthday papers to decorate, because those are also great occasions to pop open a bottle of champagne or to hand one over as a gift.
As I always ask a question every day, so my question to you is…. When was the last time you had a cause for celebration?
