Papertrey Ink's 9th Anniversary!

Today I am finally back to my blog and, really, I have Papertrey Ink's 9th Anniversary to thank for that.  The challenges came at a perfect time and each one has spoken to me.  And thankfully, we have until the 15th to get 'em done.  The first challenge is a color challenge and while looking at the choices I just could not decide. Hopping over to the JUGS challenge for the week - Valentines reminded me I hadn't been getting much in the mailboxes for the family this year.

We each have a decorated Dollar Spot mailbox for the Valentine season to send love notes and such, but we've had so much going on they were feeling a little neglected.  However, the Valentine challenge was just what I needed to get myself going.  And with all those fabulous color combinations I decided to get to work on some little boxes.  With four to make I chose four different colors combinations:





And then I pulled out my All Through the House Set from Papertrey to finally utilize that adorable box!  Here there are:

Once they were done I filled them up with dark chocolate valentine M&Ms.  

I look forward to getting back here more often.  Thanks for looking and let me know what you think!
