Sweet 16................

Hello..............Its my daughter birthday today , Sweet 16 
I'd like to show you the cake shape box I made for her.

I had started making this box when I saw this weeks challenge at 'The Shabby Tea Room'

Look at this gorgeous photo to be  inspired by.......add ribbon or lace and flowers.
I can imagine my slice of cake being part of this pretty garden party setting:)

I used Sweet Tooth cartridge to cut the box.

Can you see the little Tea pot, next to the deeper  pink flower? This was an earing.

I cut some cute strawberries from the 'Spring Cottage' cartridge to put in the box with her gift.
I used 'Flower Shoppe' for the flower and 'Picturesque' for the leaves. 

And here's her card with a big glittery 16.

I'm not sure if you can read it or not........above the 16 is another earing , that says Sweet. 

I'd also like to enter my Cake box in "Exploring Cricut"........Its a Box challenge. I have just found this blog, head over there and check out the really cool creations the DT have made.

Its getting late, I must go to bed...........the rest of my week is very busy. 
Tori is 16 today and my son turns 18 on Sunday.
We have family visiting.........I still need to make an 18 birthday card and I've got lots of baking to do. I'm tied just thinking about it! 
Should be FUN

Enjoy you week........thank you so much for stopping by
