High Hopes January Project of the Month

I have decorated this little box for Danni to use when she starts losing her baby teeth. I just need to get her a little bag to put inside for her to leave out for the tooth fairy.

A view of inside the box


These stamps are so versatile and you can also surprise someone you care about with a sweet card featuring the Tooth Fairy! Everyone loves a little fairy dust in their lives, don't they?

For the month of January this special set is priced at 25% off. You can find more details here on the High Hopes website.

Blog Candy Alert!

My 8 year old daughter Zoe has some blog candy (see below pic) to celebrate 5000 hits and also having an article printed in her school newspaper "Crowlands Crunchers" today. If you get a chance please pop to her blog and enter.



I'll leave you with the picture used in this project of my little princess Danni. Hubbie has just sniggered at my post and called her a little monster! ha ha!

Hugs,

Hi Dear,

Danni looks so adorable in her little princess dress.
I love the little tooth box idea.
Gorgeous stamp and so beautifully decorated on the inside.

Have to think about making onevfor Ruby, the dentist had to put out two of her teeth because the were wabbling for almost 6 months.
We keep telling her she has a nice parkingspace for a bike in her mouth and she really gets angry when someone else tells her the same thing.

Hugs,
xoxo Karin

How can SHE be a little monster?! I know, looks can be deceiving...my 4 year old son actually has a shirt that says "Mommy's Little Monster" on it...his teachers like this shirt!!
I love this box! Ansley (6 years) has not lost any teeth yet...and non are loose either. So I still have time to make something like this. I really like your idea. Thanks for sharing.
