Hugs & Kisses Mailbox

Well I've been working on the this mailbox for my youngest daughter Jaidyn for quite some time now.  I knew that I wanted the hugs and kisses concept but things just weren't jellin' for me.  Finally after weeks of looking at this thing, it is now finished!!! 

I used these items to create my mailbox:
  • Design Studio
  • Mailbox from Target $1.00 deals
  • Red, white and pink cardstock
  • Sweethearts Cricut cartridge - for the "Hugs & Kisses" and the "X O <3"
  • Indie Art Cricut cartride - for the lips 
  • Martha Stewart edge punch
  • Heart punch - from $1.00 bin at Michael's bought years ago
  • Hugs & Kisses ribbon - bought last year on clearance at Michael's and NEVER used
  • Pink ribbon - from my stash
  • Christmas Red and Cotton Candy Stickles - on the "Hugs & Kisses",the "X O <3", the small hearts and the lips
  • Glossy Accents and Stickles - on the lips

I am entering my mailbox in the following challenges:

I'm not sure why I had a creative block on this one but I'm glad it's over and I did end up with a nice keepsake for my daughter.  I know she will love it and especially the candy inside!

Thanks for visiting and checking out my Hugs & Kissed Mailbox.
