I am still alive, honest!

Hello bloggers! Yes, I know i've been not blogging for over a month... shame on me! But there were other things taking priority and I didn't even have much time to craft at all :-(
As you might have seen before, I am a huge fan of Papertreyink and as I also like doing other papercrafts than cards, I love their box designs/templates. Now, call me a cheapskate, but I really don't like forking out for a template I can make up myself easily! So when I saw the latest release sneak previews (due out this saturday) I sat down and did some designing myself...
Have made similar boxes before so all I did really was create a printable template for them and away I was.
Here is one I created yesterday. I have a few more in the pipeline, but not ready to show just yet ;-)
Have a great day, whatever you are up to!

Hey there Alex. I can't see a way to e-mail you so I am forced to leave a comment on your blog! You don't seem to be posting anymore and that makes me sad! Your creations are divine and I miss them! Anyway - I wondered if you would like to set a date to come and play at my house with Julie. It's my turn. If you would like to then please leave a comment on my blog and please post your designs on yours too!
