With Joyful Gratitude -Tiddly Inks Thank You Challenge!

Good Tuesday morning all! 
It's a happy, happy, happy Tuesday morning here in our house today! My kiddos are going back to school! My littlest is now in first grade, so he gets to go all day with the big kids. He is super excited and I am too! I could say, I don't know what I'm going to do with myself and all this free time I'll have now during the day....but who am I kidding, it means more crafty time! LOL


I have a new Tiddly creation for you today! Our new challenge for the next 2 weeks is all about being thankful! Be sure to stop by the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog for some amazing inspiration from the whole team to get you started!

I created a box for another one of my aunts who did a really sweet thing for us recently. I wanted to send her a little something with a huge thank you in a sweet way.

My aunt loves the jewelry and beaded items I make and has been asking me for lots of "bling, bling". So I made this big 6x6 box for her and I'm planning on filling it with lots of bling! lol

The image I used on my box today is super sweet Emma from the "Celebrate Joyfully" set. She was so fun to color up!
