Controlled Mayhem

What is it about boxes that kids go crazy over them?  When I got these boxes out, the kids were in heaven.  They must have played in them for an hour!  They took turns completely closing the top and then "opening the package".  It was sooo cute.




The paper and tags are from G45's Le Cirque, flowers were from Prima, Ribbon is from Webster's and the painted corners were from Pink Paislee.  I just love the bright colors in Le Cirque.  I think I need to plan a day to the circus just so I can use it some more ;)

Hope everyone's day is fabulous,

Denise

Love that layout, the corners are my fave :)

Funny, kids do love boxes! We bought Andraia a toy drum when she was 2, and all she wanted to do was put the box it came in on her head...she ran around exclaiming, "I am the box monster!" LOL Thanks for reminding me of this great memory :)

Great lay-out! Adorable photos! Can you believe what a box can do! My daughter made a "car" out of a box and it seemed like hours that she played in it!

Beautiful layout! All of you have a great deal of imagination ... them with a box, you with craft supplies!

Makes you wonder why we bother spending money on what's inside the boxes! So great that you captured this on a layout - very lovely!
