Hello Friends...

How are you on this sweet Tuesday morning..
Don't you just love this time of year.
I just love to be able to wake up throw on some sweats
and grab a cup of coffee and sit out on the patio.



I got this shot while I was in California.  The trees here in
Las Vegas still have all there leaves..


I would just love to live where the leave changed all these
 beautiful colors..




Like I said it is a sweet Tuesday morning which means it's
time for City Crafters Challenge..
Our host this week is Kirsty and she has brought a fun
and different challenge..

I know you might think this is just an ordinary box.. But it's not!
It's a Magical Box.

Once you take the lid off it pops open and the side fold out.. 
How cool is that.

I had so much fun playing with this one.



You should play along with us this week.  You can hop on over to
CCCB to get all the detail of this challenge
Or you might want to pop over and see what all the other
gals came up with.


I gotta run..  I have Myles here with me and I think he is ready
for some breakfast..

Thanks so much for you sweet comments my friend..
Till next time!

Hugs, Linda

Oh wow that little craft box is beautiful. A handcrafted piece of love. Gorgeous. Although my art is photography I envy those that make beautiful gifts such as these.

Oh btw that first shot of the sunset and the silhouetted trees is simply superb !

I, too, would love to live where there is fall color. Sadly, Texas has one shade of brown right now. *sigh* But, it might change a little in November and we might see some color.

That box is so cool! What a creative idea, well executed. Beautifully presented here on your blog.

I do love to see the colors but not so much raking. ;-( A magical box yours was with the exploding pages revealing a new layer to see! Gorgeous!

oh, I love your blog. and this little made box, is SO inspiring. Thanks for sharing the idea, and I think I wanna try one. I just want to see in detail for how does the side edge look like. the measurement must be very perfectly accurate, right?
I just LOVE your pictures taken so much just like a story-telling kinda walk thru.
and thanks so much for hopping by with your unforgettable words. I am happy with your visit!
