What a week it's been. It's been long and short, all at the same time. On April 8, 2013, we had to say goodbye to our sweet babygirl Bama. She wasn't just our family pet, but personally my best friend. With a husband in the military and teenage boys too 'cool' to hang with their moms, and now with both of them off to the Army, it was always just me and her. I feel like a piece of my heart is missing, even still a week later. I will never forget my sweet Bamagirl and all the love she gave me! Goodbye my sweet girl, thank you for picking us out to love for so many years!
The Cutting Cafe
So now lets get to happy thoughts!! One thing that brings a smile to my face, is files from The Cutting Cafe!! This week we were asked to work with the Tall Box Template - Cutting File. What better way to dress up a gift for someone, or in my case, some sweets! 
I also chose to work with the Candy Sentiment Sets - Printable Stamps for the polka dotted paper. I cut my box using my Silhouette Cameo and printed my paper from my printer. Very easy and quick project to put together!! So much fun to work with!
I finished it off with a bit of lace around the lid and added some bling around the window I made with a piece of acrylic from old packaging I held on to. The window portion of the box is included with this set, as well as the little tags. 

Ok ok I won't keep ya any longer. Head on over to The Cutting Cafe and check out this cute files and all the others in the store!!!!

Love the lace around the top of the box and the way your bling echoes your dotty paper. Are those homemade treats in the box? They look yummy.

I know how you feel with the loss of your Bama, you have my condolences. It's so hard to loose fuzzy children and friends.
