Valentine's Bella Blog Hop

Welcome to the Love Me Do Blog Hop. If you stumbled upon my blog and want to see where it all started click on Emily's blog. Though a very tough act to follow if you came from Sparkle's blog you are on the right track. If you get lost or a broken link you can click on this list.

I've had this poor little guy for sometime and he's never been inked, I also had some take out boxes lying around and didn't know what to do with them either. Now boy cards are not usually my thing as they are very difficult for me, so I put the two unused items together and came up with some sweet treat boxes for my nephews.

Wrapping the paper around the box is not the easiest task in the world. I ended up taking the boxes apart and doing it that way and I think they turned out ok. The Lindt Chocolate store was having a fantastic sale so I filled the boxes with truffles and the kids loved them.

stamps: Stamping Bella, Sentiment: Stamping Bella
Paper: SU
Nesties, Copics, SU taffeta ribbon


Now how about a prize? In addition to the fabulous eye candy, we have decided to hide a prize somewhere along the hop! One pre-selected blogger will draw a random winner from the
comments on her post, and the winner will receive a $25 Gift Voucher to Stamping Bella. The fun part is....we're not telling you who it is! So as you hop, make sure you leave comments on every post so you have a chance to win. We will announce the winner on Friday in the Splitcoast forum. MWAH!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope everyone has a very special Valentine's Day with those they love and now it's time to hop over the very talented Laura.
