Hi Nikki,
I loved each in his own version.
and seeing the pink lollipops thought to place instead of a pen to give as detailed at a party.
Hugs, Isabel

chelsea499 said...

Each idea is cuter than the next. Thanks for the inspiration!

alienanessa said...

OMGosh, can't believe you made four of these beauties!! I am having a very difficult time choosing my favorite because the third one down and the fourth one are absolutely delicious, with the fourth one I guess having colors that I'm just adoring! Great job on these, Adela's templates are above and beyond. I haven't stopped making In A Pinch boxes since I ordered it I think over a year ago!! Maybe even two!

Janell said...

Fabulous creations! Thanks for sharing!

Jennifer McGee said...

Wonderful Smashing Boxes all FOUR of them! They look so cute - perfect for party favors, teachers gifts, etc. Looks like you're all set.

Lolis said...

It is hard to pick a favorite box, all are beautiful, But if I have to pick one is the one with the buttons. floresrg4@aol.com

Renee's ramblings said...

Awww, do I hafta choose? Your talent has made each one great, in its own way. Can't say exactly why, but the second one seems to have caught my eye. Maybe it's the buttons?

Sally said...

Hi Nikki,
Glad to have you back. I have missed you! Love the first box because it's yellow, and it has a flower and I love both color and flowers.

Sue from Oregon said...

Oh these are all wonderful...looks like they could become addictive LOL!

cal8007 said...

Nikki,

My favorite box is the one with the buttons, but of course, that's because I'm into the "sewing" elements that are so popular now a days.
