August is Here.....

Well Lil Pinkette August that is...hehe!

I have been working on this box for a little while and have finally finished it. It was all done with the exception of the image colored in, so when I saw that this weeks challenge over at Tickled Pink was 'Anything Goes', I decided that now was the time to finish it.

 My daughter got an Ipod Touch for her birthday and I decided to make this box for her to keep it in. She usually just leaves things around her room where her little brother can grab them and wreck them. Like last year when she got an Ipod Nano and 2 weeks after getting it her little brother had dunked it into the toliet like it ws a biscuit he was dunking in his coffee. Needless to say he stuffed it and we had to buy her a new one.....Ggrrhhhh!

SO I decided that this new Ipod Touch needed a better home.......

So she has been keeping her Ipod Touch in it SO far, well it has only been a day...hehe! 

We have had a pretty busy weekend with Karate and Footy here. On Friday night we had the Karate Victoria Dinner where they announced the Victorian State Team and I am SOOOOO excited to tell you that my 10yr old Daughter Miss Ella was selected....YAY! So it is on to the Nationals competition for her in August, which lucky for her and her Dad, is in Caloundra, QLD. We are so proud of Ella, she has been working really hard to get selected and all her hard work has paid off!

Ok so not to forget my Son Brody who kicked a Goal at footy yesterday, we were very excited. Way to go Brody! Plus they won as well, which always makes the day better...hehe!

Anyway I am off to take kids to the Dr's as I have 2 kids that are pretty sick and have been all weekend. I just hope they don't pass it on to anyone else, don't like my chances...hehe!


  1. This is beautiful Emma. Every girl should have a box like this.

  2. Emma this is a gorgeous keepsake box. Sorry to hear about her previous ipod :( its always painful when a beautiful apple product takes a swim in the toilet. (Clears throat) because I wouldnt know anything about that. :)
    Hope your kiddies are feeling better.
