Happy 3rd Birthday, PWCO!!!

Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday dear PWCO!
Happy Birthday to you!!

This will be the only time or only way you will ever hear me sing any song on pitch. I have been told many times not to sing, even by my choir teacher in the 6th grade (how embarrassing!) Well now, this post isn't about me and my traumatic experiences it's all about PWCO'S 3RD BIRTHDAY!! Here's the scoop
( I stole the text from Steph's blog)

-Watch the PWCO Blog, Facebook & Twitter for special deals throughout the month
- Check out the blogs of the designers and special guests as outlined on the PWCO Blog; make sure you look closely at the project they've shown, because then you've got work to do. Match up the sneak peek to the designer who made it There are lots of great prizes to be had - including three $33 PWCO gift cards!!!

Here's the info about my project:
I created this little container for my cuttlebug folders. I saw it (dare I say it??) at Gina K's store in McFarland, WI. I've had the project filed away in my head for sometime and even went out to buy the square kleenex boxes so I could make one. I thought the birthday bash was a great time to finally craft one. There's no secret in it. Just cut off the top of the box and cover it with papers and decorate to your heart's content.

Paper: Cosmo Cricket Cherry Pie and Ribbon Sandwich

Ink: memento tuxedo black

Copics: E 57, 11, 44, 09, 33, 37, 99, 43, 00,,41
Y00, 11
YR 09,21,07
R59, 24
Accessories: square tissue box, oval nestabilities, ribbon


Here's the sneak peek I am featuring:

Good luck!
