Off On A Tangent....

I don't know about you, but I often go into my craft room to create something specific and come out with something entirely different.  My intention last night when I made this was to go down and create a sympathy card for a friends who recently lost their father.  Sometimes I feel like my brain tries to escape sadness, and it was like it just went in the complete opposite direction.  I don't even know anyone who has recently had a baby that I could give this too.  The box is the perfect size to fit two or three little onsies.  I was struggling with what to do with the shaped pieces from the Nursery Suite DSP and this one was perfect for the lid... now I'll have to try to use the Regal Rose Circle one next!
 After waking up to see the Mojo Sketch today... I was sooooo excited!  Now I can enter it!!! See, there was a reason my brain went off on a tangent... I just didn't know what it was last night:)
