Simon Says.....anything BUT a card!

The challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog is to make ANYTHING BUT A CARD!!! I have been on an altered item/3D kick lately, making all sorts of things so this is perfect!!!!

Well, this challenge couldn't have come at a more perfect time!! Friends of ours just had a baby and I needed something for little Caleb. I decided to use the Simon Says Stamp exclusive set called "Zoo Animal Vacation" with my acetate box. I coloured all the animals with Copics and layered them on cardstock so they stood out a bit better. Inside the box are 8 baby face cloths. I am SURE every new mother can use those (right????) What do I know?? I've only had furry children & they DON'T need face cloths!!! LOL We are also giving them a gift certificate to Toys R Us so they can pick something out that they need for Caleb!

So, we'd love to see your creations - I hope you will join us!!!! Head over there and check out what the other Design Team members have created for you - it will be worth the trip, trust me!!! There are some FABBY projects there!!! Go....check it out!!!!!!
Also, don't forget......every week at the Simon Says Challenge Blog, we are giving away a $25 shopping spree to one random, LUCKY winner who participates in the challenge!!! It could be YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And, somewhere on one of the Design Team blogs is HIDDEN BLOG CANDY!!! Make sure you head to all of them to find it!!!!! It will be worth the trips!!!!! AND you will see many many gorgeous creations along the way!!!! THAT in itself is worth the trips!!!!
Countdown to my birthday ..... 2 days!!!! There is some GREAT blog candy PLUS the FREEBIE FRIDAY giveaway from Simon Says Stamp!!!!! Remember to add your name to the comment section of the top post to be eligible to win one of THREE Birthday gifts!!!

This is really nice, just too cute and a little too perfect... Yep, new moms can never have too many towels, diapers or burp clothes!! Love this acetate container. I too have been on an altered item binge lately and this has got me thinking I need some acetate ASAP!!!
