Blessed and Highly Favored

We have to conduct an in-service training for our summer students and they have a teambuilding activity using a deck of cards.  My boss got the deck of cards donated by Horseshoe casino which came in a box. It was the cutest shaped box perfect to hold something at a desk. I woke up Friday morning at 4:00am and couldn't sleep.  Usually when I can't sleep I go straight to my scraproom and 2 1/2 hours later I created my vision using my bosses favorite colors chocolate and teal.

Yes indeed....I filled it with candy
I think my best work is early in the morning. Forgive me for the blury photos.  I rushed to take photos before I took it to work.  Thank goodness I wasn't late.  She smiled and said, "What for?"  I said, "Just because".  Then I showed her the photo of the original box.  She said, "What? No way."  I left her smiling.  Sometimes blessings should be shared 'Just Because'.  Entering this project in Path of Positivity - Caring  and Word Art Wednesday Challenge #87 Anything Goes

  8. Hello again! As you can see I'm in the process of catching up with all the entries thus far in our current challenge. You are so right on a couple different levels here. First off, as you said, that box is just awesome. I loved how you have transformed it into a gift of beauty. Next, you are so right that sometimes it is important to give 'just because'. This is one of the best ways to show someone else we care.

    I hope you weren't too tired the rest of that day!

    Thanks once more for joining us on the Path of Positivity in our current challenge.
