ABC (anything but a card) challenge- Baby Milestones

Arghhhh....take 3...i just realized that the image below, was missing it's bow when i took the picture, i think i FINALLY, have it right in this picture...This is what happens when you do things away from home...things fall off and i do things in a hurry and misspell words...I think this is it...sorry.
I've corrected my first box i made, below i misspelled the word "milestones" and my friend, Sara was kind enough to point that out. I guess it's what happens when you aren't fully charged. :) I also, had misspelled the title for this post and have corrected that as well.

I found this metal recipe box and added some patterned paper, buttons, ribbons and cute teddy bear image. I thought it would be a great place to store milestone notes, as they happen for our new grandson that will be born in August. I can then take the "notes" and use them as reference for his scrapbook or use the actual cards in his scrapbook.

Cupcake wrappers Easter gifts

Just another idea for a child's bucket. Fill it with Easter goodies and add a Critter to the front of the bucket.

I used Cindy Loo and Create a Critter cartridge for this project. The cupcake wrappers fit around baskets, buckets and flower pots. They would also make nice Mother's day gifts w/flowers. There could be many variations. Add a few extra butterflies and make it 3-d.
Check out this neat blog with many ideas..
