Simple Doodles Challenge 23 - Out Of The Box

It's time for another Simple Doodles challenge This fortnight the challenge is:

Out Of The Box

And I have taken it literally (to be honest I didn't consider anything else!) I've made these three cute exploding boxes. Not sure if they are proper exploding boxes but they are using my own template and sizing and worked fine for me!

I've used Funky Hand - Funky Daze papers and three different collections but the same patterns for each - Funky Hand papers have different collections of papers with different colours but the same patterns so if you like the pattern but wanted it in blues - no problem!

The top of the boxes show off 4 flowers on each corner made with my Cuttlebug flower die plus matching Card Candy from Craftwork Cards.

The boxes are quite dinky and they each have an inner layer which shows off yet more scary photos of Jacob! These three have been made for his three main people at nursery as a thank you for when he leaves at the start of September prior to starting school. I've got one more to make for Karen the cook but that one will be from both boys as she's been the cook from the nursery being built and her creations are always well received by the boys!

This one is for Rachel who was Jacob's key worker for the last 2 years and she's recently been promoted to full time Manager to cover maternity leave. Various photos of Jacob and some of him with Samuel from being less than 24 hours old (far right) to mid June (pic in middle with Rachel). The devil photo was taken at nursery when he was 2 and he had his face painted and it lasted all day - he didn't smudge it at all, and it was all glittery too! Mind you, it stayed for a few days after too! The very bottom photo is from a Farmer Ted's trip 2 years ago with nursery when all our kids wore wellies and no-one else did.....!!

Anyway, a bit of corner rounding and some doodling and they are complete - really quick to make once I got going!
