Hello Family, Friends, and Fellow Crafters!!!

This month I am celebrating a few firsts.  I am setting out to try a few techniques or projects that I've never done before.  Some have been on my list for awhile now, so let's get to the first one.

My 1st project this month is an Explosion Box.  I've been wanting to do this for over a year now.  After the first one, I was hooked.  I am going to use some of these as cards this year, instead of a traditional card.  The first one below is a thank you card.  This also doubles as an entry to this week's challenge over at Celebrate the Occasion this week. 

I want to thank so many individuals who have supported and encouraged me in this crazy craft world that I love so much.  My hubby and kids, my dad, my sister and bff, my friends, my crafty sisters, & LJ (who introduced me to scrapbooking as an art).

I also made one for a birthday.  The recipient will be able to add pictures from her birthday celebration as well as a little journaling.
