Toby Easel Box:






Today's Ramblings:
Good Monday morning. We had such a great weekend, I am sad it's over :( The good news?? In another two weeks and we have another long weekend! Yay for Labour Day weekend!!!!

Today's DT Challenge: The new theme at StampFairy Challenge is Fancy Folds.

I just recently started with fancy folds. I now find them truly addicting. This time around I tried something new. I doubt I will ever make another easel box as it took me 6 hours to complete. A lot of trial and error went into this project!

I used Toby Snow {found here}:

I tried to think outside the box when it came to non-traditional Christmas colors.

Perfect for a little Christmas treat!
