I'm Lovin' It and Weekend Giveaway Winner Announced!

It's Monday y'all!

Two more weeks of school for us before Spring Break.
The kids are getting anxious for a few days off.
And with Spring Break comes vacations. Do you remember your favorite vacation as a kid? I do!!! I was 6 and my aunt and uncle decided to take me to Disney World. I lived in Iowa and they lived in Texas so my parents meet them part way and off I went on an adventure. My aunt was and still is a big fan of Elvis so we stopped in Nashville, then headed to Florida and spent a few days playing on the white sandy beaches, and then Disney World. So much fun! And it was somewhere along the drive that we stopped at a McDonalds where I was able to meet Ronald himself.
So when I saw this file of Ronald in the Treasure Box Designs store, and knew where I could pick up a box in the Silhouette store that looked like a Happy Meal Box, my mind went straight to this project. How awesome is this!!!
But here is my confession - I haven't eaten at a McDonalds in years. My husband and I gave up fast food several years ago and decided that we didn't want to raise our children up on it either. But this project does bring back so many good memories of sharing fries with my brothers and of eating chicken nuggets that were more likely back then to be made out of real chicken. LOL!
So here are some details. The box itself stands about 5 inches tall, 3 inches long and is 2 1/2 inches wide. My Ronald is about 2 1/2 inches tall. I made the title myself in my Silhouette Software. I found some letters I liked and then worked with them until I got the offset to look the way I wanted it to. The edges of my pieces are inked with Memento and Color Box inks. Ronald's cheeks are lightly colored with chalk and then I used my white gel pen to add some detail.
Here is where you can get the files to make one of these as well:
Treasure Box Designs: I'm Lovin' It
Silhouette Store: 3d Meal Box Id #26956
(To get the second layer of the box handles, I did some editing of the file in my software. It takes a bit of patience to get it done, but the effect is worth it.)

This is very very cute...Love the die-cuts. I am grateful that you joined us in our Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you an inspirational verse as spoken by Jesus to them that believe from John 14:21 and it says, "Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them." A blessed week to you always.
