There Is No Place Like The Cuttlebug Challenge Spot

I had so much fun participating in The Cuttlebug Challenge Spot last week, I decided to play along again. I'm also so excited that I won last week's challenge! Whoo Hoo!! I wanted to make something that really wasn't too scary. I love the Wizard Of Oz, but when Dorothy is locked in the tower and she sees the Witch's head in the crystal ball, that is really scary!

I made a ginormous explosion box and added a some paper weaving to the sides to make it look like a basket. When you pull off the top of the basket, you get a surprise! The ruby mary janes were made from a template I got off the EK Success site a few years ago. I used the red glitter Core-dinations cardstock to make the shoes and then added some red Stickles to give it a little more dazzle. Toto is made out of a dog Quickutz Double Die. I made the yellow brick road with the Bubbles Cuttlebug Embossing folder which I cut into little pieces and then glued onto some glitter cardstock. I chose the creamy milk chocolate Dove candies because they were wrapped in blue foil to represent Dorothy's blue socks. A few prima flowers were added to my yellow brick road.

I had a lot of fun making this, I don't know who I should give it to!

Paper: DCWV, Core-dinations, Recollections, The Paper Company
