I'm Bananas for You! And Some Exciting News!

So Friday was Valentine's Day as you know; and true to my nature, I was making last minute gifts for my kids to give to them when they arrived home from school. I thought I would go ahead and share two of them with you (the ones for my boys) on this post and I will make a separate post for my daughter's gift.
But before I share my photos, first I must tell you my Exciting News!
I am now a Design Team member for My Scrap Chick!!!
I have been using files from this company for many years and now I am so glad to be on their team. I look forward to sharing many projects with you using their super cute files!
I will be showing you two super cute Belly Boxes today.
These boxes are so much fun and so easy to put together!

The files come in many different formats allowing you to cut them out on several different electronic cutting machines. They also come with a PDF for hand cutting.
I just used cardstock from my stash to complete both projects and, of course, I inked the edges for dimension. I used my very old SU chalk around the eyes and on the checks.
I really like the stamp set I used on these. It is the Valentine Treat set from Jaded Blossom.
I really like the pun on the monkey box!!!
And the sentiment on the Skunk box is so versatile for so many different projects.

Hope you will drop by the My Scrap Chick store to check out all the fun files there and the My Scrap Chick FB page to share all your creations with us.
Thanks for stopping by!
Before you leave though, I hope you will become my newest friend on my blog. Just hit the follower button on the top right. Be sure to leave me a comment letting me know that you did, and I will return the favor. I know I sure like to check out the inspiration on many different blogs to keep my mojo flowing.
