A Trinket Box for the Birthday Boy and FTR9

 Guess what time it is? Yup its time to.......

I am telling you this is the easiest Challenge in Blog-land.  Just pick one lil' 'ol part of the recipe and use it on your creation.  That's it!  I used several of Nana's ingredients for Catered Crop Follow the Recipe (FTR) #9.  I always start with a sketch, this time using Mojo Monday 185.
I am still stuck on FTR8's boxes theme, so I decided to make a gift box for a boy. 
 Boys have trinkets too, and never have much to put their stuff in, so voila, boy box!  If you want to see what's in the box, stop by tomorrow! ;)
I used the new release stamp set from TSG, Out of This World.  Here's the little boy up close..

I just love this stamp set that was designed by Melyssa Connolly for TSG.  I used Collage Pauge by Aleene's to cover all the DP.  I love this stuff!! (Way better for me than Mod Podge for some reason.)

And here's how I followed the recipe:

Here's the FTR9 recipe. Recipe items are in parenthesis,  the items I used are in blue.
  • Pattern Paper – (stripes, plaids and polka dots)Bo Bunny Blast Off!
