I used Core'dinations orange, brown and green cardstock and the stripe is from my Basic Grey Mellow 6 x 6 paper pad.
I also coordinated this with Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper today: Terry. You can go here to play along. This is the card that I cased of hers: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/690008?cat=500&ppuser=17031&sorttime=all&sortby=v&way=desc

I used Core'dinations brown, Bazzil blue and Basic Grey's Archaic (polka dots) for the box. I made the box exactly how Jen describes on her blog (click on her name above to find the instructions). I used SU!'s scallop circle punch (sponged with Chocolate Chip ink) and Storage Units, Ink & More's "Leaf It To Me" stamp set. Tied it shut with SU!'s retired brown ribbon (sure wish they would bring this back as this was my LAST piece).

I stamped the image in black on white cardstock and colored with Gamsol & colored pencils. I added Yellow, Orange Peel and Crystal Ice Stickles to the corn candy sections as well as orange to her socks and crystal effects to her shoes to make them shiny. Stamped image is layered on Core'dinations dark brown cardstock. I stapled two scraps of ribbon to top left of panel and on the bottom right only inked up first line of sentiment and stamped in black.
For card background, I cut orange, yellow and white Core'dinations cardstock and butted together, then used "x's" rub ons by Making Memories along edges where colored cardstock met.

To add color to the panel edges without layering, I rubbed SU!'s Chocolate Chip ink along the edges. Tab is made with SU!'s rounded tab punch.
Images are from Storage Units Ink & More's "Out of this World" set and colroed with Gamsol & colored pencils. Other used: mini paper bag.

Yesterday was Benjamin's first x-country meet. Last year he came in 22nd (there are twenty medals given as there are alot of class A schools there). This year he rec'd a medal for 19th place! Very exciting!! My goal this year is to develop pictures after every meet and get them scrapbooked. I am hoping to do that this weekend.
He also has improved his time a great deal. Usually, the improved time is 30 seconds (give or take a few). Last year his best time was about 19.22 or somehwere arount there. I need to ck for sure. Yesterday, he said his time was 18.04!! That is an awesome improved PB (personal best) in a year. I look forward to seeing what he does next Saturday as it is a home invite.

I pierced the holes to hand stitch the "x's". I cut slits above and below his fingers to "hold" the flower. Brown circle was cut with Cricut as I don't have a 1.5" circle punch. "For you with love" is mounted with mounting tape.
other stamps: SU! (for you)
paper: Basic Grey's 6 x 6 Archaic pad
ink: SU! Basic Black
other: brads-unknown, Gamsol and colored pencils, embroidery floss, SU! piercing kit
