Little Santa Challenge # 96 at 613 Avenue Create Challenge

The last day of the weekend and it's been a full one for us. We had a wedding to go to yesterday. It was held on the balcony of the Sea Rescue Squadron venue down at West Beach at 5p.m. It was pretty chilly and we were looking towards the sea with the sun in our eyes. It was a fairly quick ceremony as it was done with a marriage celebrant and after watching them sign the registry we all dashed inside for the reception. I had only about 4 hours sleep the night before so I was bushed by 9:30 so we said our goodbyes and headed home. The younger ones had got into the loud music and dancing so you couldn't hear any conversation anyway. This afternoon we had hubby's brother, sister-in-law and one of his nieces over. They came down to see our latest granddaughter. So they all came for lunch which was very late!!! Then they wanted to see our other granddaughter as well, so we rang them up and they popped over as well. It's now 6:45 and the last ones have just left. So this is the first bit of free time I've had all day to pop in and write up my post.
A new challenge has started today at 613 Avenue Create and as usual it is Anything Goes, but......we always like to give you an optional twist and we love it when you take up the challenge. The twist is Holiday Thanks....Create a Thankyou card or Host?Hostess Gift. I chose to make a box to put some goodies in and I love the cute little image from Aurora Wings.............Check it out.
Our sponsors are Aurora Wings and Delicious Doodles.
Here is my make for the challenge....... A friend sent me a picture of a box similar to this and asked if I knew how to make it - I said No but I think it wouldn't be too hard to figure out and voila.... here it is.
