DeNami's Featured Product...

Happy Hump Day! I always feel like I'm over the hump when Wednesday rolls around. Although lately the weeks have been flying by. We have been busy over on the DeNami blog this week. DeNami is highlighting another one of their adorable stamps today. The name of the stamp is Safari Animals and is it ever cute.

Whenever I see these cute little critters I think of Barnum's Animal Crackers. You know, the crackers that come in the cute red box with the white shoestring tie. I absolutely LOVE them..... yum. I decided to use one of DeNami's 2 ¾ x 2 ¾ white boxes for my project. I cut a circle out of the top of the box with my circle cutter and then used transparency paper to create a window effect. This was really fun to create and I think it would work well as a safari theme party favor. It was a good thing that I bought two boxes of Barnum's because I polished off one box while creating my project. Mmmmmm......

EBTKS is hosting a sketch challenge this week and I thought this little box would fit the bill perfectly. There are so many great ideas over on their blog so don't forget to hop on over and check it out.

Thanks for making me part of your day!

Hugs and Smiles,

Laurie :)
