Maggie You're The Best

Do you ever get pushed out of your comfort zone, only to find that you learned something new and wonderful? Of course we all have, that is one of the greatest joys {and frustrations} *giggle* of paper crafting. This week at cuttlebug challenge blog we have the privilege of working with these fantastic digital images from mlamarre designs by Maggie Our fearless leader at CCB. I have very limited experience with digital stamps..so I had no idea that I could re size the image!
Ok, Ok, stop laughing at my blondness any time now :)
I'm looking forward to playing with more digital stamps, and you could too! just join us for this weeks challenge for a chance to win Maggie's incredible digital stamps! This fun tiny metal lunchbox container was purchased from Joann's, and dressed up with coredinations textured paper, I embossed a portion of the flourish frame folder into the paper and sanded the raised image. I used the pinking circles nestabilities to make a "ribbon" so this container is truly a prize"

I used close to cocoa ink to distress all the edges, and the raised embossed area.this gives a little depth to the fun blue color scheme. What does one fill a tiny lunchbox with?? Well the forbidden fruit of schools everywhere of course! ***Gumballs*** how super cute are these?!! My teacher friend will love the irony of my gift I'm sure. Let me know what you think I love to hear from you, and as always don't forget to visit CCB to see what the rest of the DT put together!
