I am honored to be a Guest Designer this week over at One Stitch At A Time!! I love playing Stitchy's images as well as many of the other artists that you'll find at Stitchy Bear Stamps! This weeks challenge is to "USE SOMETHING NEW"!!
For my challenge project, I chose to use an image from Stampin' Dragon Designs!

My son graduated on May 27th from high school, so I wanted to make him something special that I could give him his graduation present in. When I seen this cute image of chocolate from Stampin' Dragon Designs I knew what I wanted to do. I love the movie Forrest Gump and one of my favorite quotes from the movie is..."Life is like a box of chocolates...You never know what you're gonna get!" And isn't that the truth!! Especially for a new graduate and young adult going off into the world. So I made the box below to hold his new mp3 that we got him as a Congratulations and to let him know that we were proud of his accomplishment! Hope you like it as well!!!

Be sure to join One Stitch At A Time this week and let's see something NEW!!
Thank you Stitchy and Sam for being so kind and helpful to me this week (and always) and for inviting me to be a Guest Designer for your challenge blog! I've had a lot of fun!!

Love your box. I too would have thought there would be chocolates inside, but I'm sure your son was happy for the tease.
