Love Letter Blog Hop

Welcome to My Stop on the "Love Letter Blog Hop" today. If you just happened to stop in then you should start the hop at Michelles Place and drop by all the gals blogs to see what they have to share. If you are comeing here from Gini's blog you are in the right spot. I hope you enjoy.
So this is the wonderful image that we have to use for the hop today. Isn't she sweet? If you would like one for yourself you can purchase it at Michelles Etsy Shop along with a lot of other great images.I used Copics to color this and the paper is Bo Bunny. So this is one of those cute mailboxes that you can buy at most craft stores.

This is the other side of the mailbox.



And this is the lid of the box.



I kind of like the way this looks in this light. I ran out of natural light because I didnt' get home sooner today. So this is my letter to my oldest grand daughter Claudette. She is 11 this year and I am amazed at what a wonderful young lady she is becoming.





Okay so I had to make a box for KayLynn also. I still have to write her letter and then decide what gift to put inside both the girls mailbox. Same image and concept just different color and papers.





These are so sweet, I hope they really like them.




I hope you enjoyed what I did today and now you should be off to Anjou's Blog.

Have a wonderful day today and if anyone is a football fan Good luck, Have Fun and I hope your Team Wins.
