Boxes - Stampotique Challenge SDC 151

Hello all, thanks for coming by. I've been super busy with summer and my daughter out of school that I've neglected my Blog. I hope to get back to posting more often soon. 

This week over at the Stampotique Designer's Blog the new challenge was chosen by our wonderfully talented Arwen McCullen and she has chosen the theme "Boxes"

I love this challenge and what better way to make a box than by using Eileen Hull's Artist Trading Block Dies

I used the smallest size for my project, it's the 1 1/2" x 1 1/2"
This one was the perfect size for the Stampotique Stamp I used

This is also my Wednesday to post over at Stampotique Designer's Blog so make sure to check that out, I always love comments too :)

For this project I used the Stampotique Stamps

Scooter Girl - Roc Nicholas
Cross Hatch Swirl - Maryse Carrier
Blocks - Maryse Carrier
Tall Word Collage - Amy Wilson-Wellenstein
Great Moon - Jo Capper-Sandon (only used the star from this stamp)
Carol's Flower Small - Janet Klein
Daniel's Hearts - Daniel Torrente

Whew... that's a lot of stamps that I got to use on this one small project but it was so fun to put together, I love how it turned out. It looks like the scooter girl is pulling the little Artist Trading Block Cart!!
The little purple bead with dots was used as the "pulley" was sent to me by my friend Terri Richardson, she sends me things now and again that I can use in my creations. I love her, she's so supportive!!

Thanks for coming by once again, enjoy your week!!
