Something New At OSAAT

It's time once again for another OSAAT challenge.  This week is use something new!  Speaking of something new, Stitchy and Sassy have started a new forum and you can find it here............ Go on over and join.  Our official opening is tomorrow, May 31st!  Now it is still under contruction, so please excuse the dust.  Also we are having a big party on June 11th, so come check it out.  
This week the prize for the challenge blog  will be 3 digi's of the winner's choice from  So this week I had the pleasure of using one of Stampin Dragon's designs.  
Before I show you my project, let me tell you a little about why I chose what I chose this week.  My mom makes jewelry.  (You can see her work if you click on Janice at the top of my page.) She has made my girls some nice jewelry.  Well the 9 yr old and 11 yr old still break things and are very irresponsible.  So they don't have jewelry boxes.  I decided to make them one.  So this week I bought the 9 yr old a paper mache jewelry box.  I decided I was going to decorate it as my DT project this week since it was something new.  I let Brooke (the 9 yr old) pick out her image she wanted on the box.  She picked Tommy Tortoise Stamp which can be purchased HERE along with other wonderful creators digi's and papers.  

Materials used were as followed...........
paper mache jewelry box (ebay)
green paper
polka dot paper
metal letter embellishment
glitter glue
color pencils

I am entering this into the following challenges............ -  circles (my polka dots) - make someone smile or cheer them up - sew sew (my paper has what looks like stitches on it) - use color combo provided - round & round (polka dots on my paper)

Well sweet friend, I'm blown away again by your talent and of course your devotion to your daughters. Brook is blessed to have such a stunning box, but more blessed to have such a loving and supportive mom. I can't wait to see what you have planned for the next challenge, you are so very talented.
