Good morning! Happy Friday! This weeks Stamp Something Challenge is hosted by Lisa. Her challenge to us is Chocolate Somethings. Great challenge! Who doesn't love chocolate? I didn't have any chocolate, since that's one of those things that just doesn't last very long around here . So I decided to make a box, and we'll just have to pretend it's full of chocolate . I did use a lot of Chocolate Chip on it though. So what do you think of the box? I was trying to come up with something for the challenge, and I decided I wanted to make a tall and skinny box. I don't recall seeing any tutorials for tall skinny boxes, so I thought I'd just come up with my own. Super easy! It ended up being 2 1/2 X 2 1/2 X 6. I'll try to get a tutorial up in the next few days. After I got the box done, I was completely stumped about how to decorate it. I think trying to figure out how to decorate it took longer than trying to design the box, lol. I pulled out my rectangle nesties, cut the largest one and then cut out a few of the scallops with my paper trimmer to make it more narrow. Oh, and I finally tried doodling! I've been meaning to for the longest time. I keep seeing a lot of doodling on cards, especially from Jo and Corie and it always looks awesome, but like everything else, by the time I sit down to stamp I forget. Mine came out pretty darn crooked, but I do think it added a lot. It was looking kinda blah before.
