Oh how I love Teddy Bo digi stamps

Hi there, Welcome to my blog.  I finally get to share something with you today.  Its taken quite a bit of work but I'm pleased with the result.
My neice turns 21 in a weeks time and she has asked for baking goodies as her present.  I thought I would add a special little something.  I have altered a brownie mix box and turned it into a recipe box.  We used to bake alot with her when she was little so it's going to be filled with recipes from her childhood.
I would like to enter my altered recipe box to the following challenges :
Teddy Bo - alter something
Stamp Something - use a digi stamp
Craft us crazy - anything goes
Dream Valley - surprise - Teddy Bea and Jolly the g Jiraffe are hiding inside the lid of the box
Papertake - anything goes
Night shift stamping - anything goes
Sundays with Chrissy - KISS card

This is how the box started out.  Very yummy chocolate brownie mix I sometimes get from Costco.

Here is the front of the box with items from this mornings baking session.

Here you can see Teddy Bea and G Jariffe peeping at you when you open the lid. They are coloured with copic's.

The lettering and the fancy label are cut on my cricut.  Bea is coloured with copic's.

Here's a close-up of the sneaky pair hiding in the box.

Where it looks like I have used kraft cardstock I have actually used insides of the boxes coke comes in.
Both the "kraft" cardstock and the PP have got vintage photo distress ink around the edges.  I also drew stitches in brown metallic pen around each PP.
I hope you like my altered box and for those of you kind enough to leave me comments, I send you a big cyber hug,

Lovely box! I love getting inspiration from packaging and recycle too!

ps; you were right about the sentiment thing on my baby cards, but i add sentiments when i know when and to who i'll send that specific card.

I'd like your opinion on all my recent cards!
