Come and Get it Farewell Christmas Challenge

Today is a bittersweet day. I have had the honour of running my own challenge blog Come and Get It Challenges with a dear friend of mine Julie Temple for the past 6 plus years, but due to reasons out of our control the time has come for us to say goodbye. We have had so many great designers over the years, and I am proud to say that most of them have become very good friends. I have enjoyed the journey I have been on with this blog, but as they say all good things come to an end.

For our Final challenge we have a Christmas challenge for you, it will run for the month of December and the winners will be announced on the 8th of January.

For my project I have used a Besties image and made it into a candy box. I have colored the image with copics.  have added her to a box, and then put on a piece of chipboard that I covered the bottom with snow tex and then added the banner and trees. thanks for looking and hop you will join us for our last hurrah.
