Happy Monday with a treat box!

Happy Monday everyone! I had a great great weekend visiting with family. I flew to my sister's on Friday to surprise my mom for her birthday. I think she was surprised! Then met all my siblings Friday night for dinner to celebrate mom's birthday and my 2 brother's birthdays. Lots of birthdays in March for us. Then my mom, sister and I hit the Scrapbooking Expo on Saturday. I think we boosted the economy for the day!! I then had lunch on Sunday with my very oldest dear friend Beth and that was wonderful. I didn't want to catch my plane, just wanted to sit and talk all day with her!! I have photos and will share them as soon as I get them off my camera.

I did want to share the card and treat box I made for my oldest brother for his birthday. It was the big 4-0!!! It was a challenge to make something somewhat masculine and not foof it up with bling and flowers and ribbon. I used my stamps from Papertrey Ink, I love these birthday stamps!!

I love that little treat box, it's a template from PTI. They have lots of fun templates available and all sorts of great examples of how to use them. I put a iTunes gift card in this one. I used the Offbeat line from Basic Grey and love it. Great, great colors in that paper.

That's about all I have today! Hope you all had a great weekend. I'm going to be a busy crafter this week, I have lots of assignments and lots of things I want to create. I'll see how much I get done! Thanks for stopping by!!
