Party Time!

So excited for another challenge at

613 Avenue Create!

It's our Blogaversary and we are Celebrating!!!

This weeks challenge: Anything Goes with a Party Time twist!

In life there are so many things to celebrate - 
birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, the birth of a precious baby ...

Next month we have a day to celebrate the ones we love. I hope you don't wait for Valentine's Day to show others in your life how much they mean to you. But it never hurts to use this day to give a little something special!!! My files this week are sponsored by
I hope all of you will stop by there and see all of the great cut files and digital files that Regina offers.

Now for my project:

So glad that I was recently invited to join the DT at 613 Avenue Create. I have driven in and unpacked. It already feels like home! This great gift box comes from the Funny Car Gift Box and Shaped Card kit. For my car, I used some kraft cardstock to form the gift box. The cardstock used to decorate it is Amercican Crafts and a couple of scraps from my stash. The design paper is My Mind's Eye. It is the Lost & Found Record It - Heirloom 6x6 paper pad. It is a fabulous set of papers, full of great colors and designs. Definitely perfect for all your Valentine papercrafting needs! (Another great way to use this box would be if you are giving your child a car for their Sweet 16. You could decorate it and stick the keys in the box. I also found a digi stamp the other day that would be perfect for this box. It read - I wheely like you.)

But cars are not the only thing one might find in a neighborhood. I personally cannot imagine a neighborhood without a wagon! Can you?! This wagon is from the Little Red Wagon Gift Set. Again the cardstock used is American Crafts and some others from my scrap bin. The kraft cardstock used to make the wood pieces on the side were run through my Cuttlebug with a wood grain folder made by Darice (bought at my local Pat Catan's). I used Memento and Color Box inks for all the inking. I really like how the inking on the wood grain made it pop. Well wagons are used for pulling around lots of good things. Little boys pull their dogs, little girls pull around their dolls, dads pull around their children ...

But what does a crafter pull around? Well crafting supplies of course!

And might you be wondering what my special little package is holding?!

 Oh, I just think these little boxes that came with the Little Red Wagon Gift Set are adorable. The Trendy Twine used to wrap my packages is called Valentine Cherry Cupcake and it is truly delicious. The love stamp is a Cuttlebug embossing/die set called Celebration Stamps. I have had it forever and so glad I have finally used it for the first time. There are four stamps in the set.

Well my little box is carrying a sweet crafty treat for one of you! That's right. I'm giving a little blog candy away as we celebrate this week! And this is all you have to do to win - become a follower here on my blog and leave me a comment on this post and you will be entered to win. I will draw a name from all the entries next Saturday night and will announce the winner Sunday in my next DT post for 613 Avenue Create.
(The winner will have two weeks to claim their prize.)

I also have a FB page that I would like for you to check out and follow me there. Just click the Like button at M. Miranda Creations

I know, I know, I still haven't told you what the crafty treat is!

I thought I would share a My Mind's Eye paper pack like the one I used in my project as well as a bit of the Trendy Twine. Hope you will enter to win.

The best thing about getting some new followers will be that if I reach 100, I have another blog candy giveaway posted at the top of my blog in the right side column. This is a surprise blog candy. I will draw a name from all the followers when I reach 100 and make a post for my winner. 
(Again the winner will have two weeks to claim the prize.)

I will be entering my project into the following challenges:
Creative Fingers: #19 Anything Goes
4 Crafty Chicks: #176 Bows
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog: #159 Anything Goes
The Crafter's Cafe: #45 Anything Goes

Love your project...so cute! I too have that Cuttlebug embossing and die cut. I think it came with the machine when I bought it but I haven't used it either. You've inspired me to drag it out and put it to good use. Thanks for offering the blog candy!
