My first explosion box

Hi everyone!  Wow, Fridays come so quickly these days, which is a good thing in my opinion :)

Today I'm sharing my first explosion box!  I know, I'm a little late in the game.  Everyone started making these a while ago, but I had never made one until last night :)  It was great to really do some cutting and gluing instead of spending time coloring.  If I hadn't mentioned, I like the "putting the card together" part much more than the "get the image colored" part.

Anywho, all the papers (except for the stripped paper on the outside of the box) were from the Echo Park Season's Greetings 6x6 paper pad.  All the little titles (is that what they're called?) are from the MME Lost and Found Christmas 12x12 Accessory Sheet.  With the papers, the accessory sheet, and some Spellbinders dies (which SPS has for great prices), the box was pretty easy to put together!  The rest is just frills (flowers and ribbon)

I actually liked how it turned out, but boy was it difficult to photograph especially during nighttime when I had to try to work with my little white board.  It definitely won't be the last time I make one of these :)  Hope you like it!
