Just Us Girls - Template Challenge and Sponsor

This week is template week with JUST US GIRLS and we have a fabulous sponsor - Kelleigh Ratzlaff Designs! This week there is a $10 gift certificate up for grabs for one lucky participate. The challenge is make a project using a template and Kelleigh Ratzlaff Designs offers up one for FREE! SO BE SURE TO CHECK IT OUT HERE and play along!

I almost didn't think I was going to get something together this week. It was a rough week. Tuesday was my birthday and I went out with the kids a bit during the day. But when we got home they got sick, stomach bug sick! Not fun for any of us. Then yesterday I started to feel a bit under the weather. I didn't get anything real bad like they did but I did go to bed early. So finally today I printed the template and got to work and unfortunately had to take my picture at night! I have to say the kids loved this little template also I had to make a few of these boxes for them!

I worked with the matchbox template. I really love this little box and think I would use it again.

Here it is open, I put a box of buttons inside. My images on the outside are by Unity Stamp Co.

Sorry about the poor photos! If anyone can make some good suggestions for taking pictures late at night I want to hear it! LOL! I have a decent camera but I might need some lessons.

Anyhow, be sure to swing on by the blogs of the JUGS DT and leave them some love! I know they will have some fabulous stuff to share with you!
