Just Because

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Hello Everyone! 
Wow, what a crazy summer it's been! I am so sorry I just haven't had a lot of time to blog and/or craft lately, life has just been super busy right now. I am sure there are some of you guys out there that can relate, right?
 I am hoping to have a little time over the wknd to visit your blogs and maybe even sneak in my craft room
 a bit...fingers crossed! 

A few days back Jaded Blossom and SVG Cutting Files had their 2nd Annual Hello Kitty Blog Hop. They were giving away over 20 Hello Kitty SVG cutting files away free for completing the hop. Jaded Blossoms even has coordinating stamps to go with the files! Wow, how fun is that? I am hoping to make all these file eventually~they are all so stinken cute! 
Here is the Hello Kitty Fry Box:
I cut the fry box at the size the file came in as with papers from Recollections. I adhered it together with some amazing Tombow Extreme Adhesive tape that I won from The Cutting Cafe blog. Wow, this stuff sticks like crazy...perfect for boxes.
I wanted to add a sparkly look to the letters so I used my Wink of Stella glitter that little touch of sparkle :)
I re-sized the Hello Kitty just a little to 1.949 along with the layers. I added some fun pink midnight Trendy Twine that I picked up a while ago and tucked a double bow under the center piece for a fun look. I added rosy cheeks and a few freckles to this cutie.

The box was filled with some yummy red sour balls. Ofta, are they ever sour BUT perfect for little kiddo's, right? I tied on Princess Party Pink ribbon from Lovebug Creations and poked in a cute little banner.
I used Jaded Blossoms Treat Flag Die and stamped the sentiment with Jaded Blossoms Simple Sayings stamp set. 
A fun little summer treat for Arya's friend :)
These would be cute as a party favor for a child's birthday, a classroom party or even a summer picnic your attending for all those little girls...:)
