EBTKS Challenge #8

It's time for another Everything But the Kitchen Sink Around the House challenge! This month we're using box tops in our creations...AND, for the first time, we have a sponsor...Kelleigh Ratzlaff Designs!

The winner of this challenge will receive a $15 gift certificate to Kelleigh's store AND everyone who participates will receive a coupon code for 40% off a $15 purchase! Cool, huh?

The design team was lucky enough to receive one of Kelleigh's templates for free.
If you've never checked out Kelleigh's templates, you are missing out on some CUTE stuff! As soon as I saw the strawberry template, I was in LOVE!

Now, I consider myself "template impaired," but putting together a basket of these little cuties was SO easy!

I used a box top to punch out the "so sweet" tag.

AND...I think I deserve "extra credit" on this challenge since I also recycled this plastic container (it originally held grape tomatoes). What do you think?

Seriously, don't these sweet treats make you long for summer?

Pssst...there's a sweet candy surprise inside each one!

So, ready to play along? Link up your box top creation over on the EBTKS blog. You have until Mon., Feb. 8 to submit your project. I can't wait to see what you create!

Stamps: Everyday Button Bits (PTI)
Paper: SU dp

Ink: Real Red

Extra points as well for this being toooo adorable!! These look yummy!! Good for you for being able to put treats in a favour box and not tear them open to eat....my bad habit after a Stampin Up Stampers 10 meeting!! A fun challenge I hope to participate :)
