Explosions Everywhere Blog Hop

Good morning all my fellow crafters! I hope you are having a great start to your 4th of July weekend! 

Welcome to the Explosions Everywhere Blog Hop hosted by Me {hehe} and the amazing Zeni! I am busting at the seams excited and can't wait for all you hoppers to check out the amazing creations! Ok so if you are starting here..yup you are in the right place! If you happen to get lost along the way here is our amazing Lineup, you don't want to miss a single creation!


Did I mention the AWESOME grand prize for one of you lucky hoppers!! Scrapbook Steals graciously sponsored us with this.......drum roll......!!
A crafty basket of goodies including:
Bo Bunny Pattern Papers (new release this spring)
American Crafts Adhesive
My Mind's Eye 6x6 pad, Stella and Rose
Prima Marketing Got Flowers bottles

Plus Kich N Bleus is also giving the winner a set of their awesome digis!!
In order to qualify for the grand prize, you must leave a comment on every blog. 3 random names will be chosen from each blog and then placed in a pull for the grand prize. Easy Peasy Right!!

Ok now on to my Explosion Box!! I decided to make a birthday box for my BFF Ashley her birthday is next week and I got her a gift card {she is hard to shop for lol} I didn't just want to hand her a gift card so this is what I came up with!
Happy Birthday form Forks, WA?? I live in San Antonio lol
Here is the box opened up....
AHH makes sense now lol! My friend is a die hard twilight fan a Twihard!
I knew she would just Flip over this! I used her favorite characters from the movie!
 Alice, Edward, Jacob, and her so called future Hubby Jasper! I made a little pop up gift card holder to go in the middle {I just noticed I put the card backwards lol its late!}
Here are close ups of all the characters
First is Edward
Jacob
Jasper {AKA Future Hubby}
and finally Alice
I also added on the second layer, each of the four books

How do you like my Twilight Explosion Box? I can't wait to give it to her! It was a lot of work but totally worth it! I am so happy with it! Those Greeting Farm stamps are too cute!

I have a little candy of my own to give one of you! Want a Greeting Farm stamp all of your own?! Well I am giving away 1 stamp of your choice from the greeting farm, just leave a comment,I would love for you to follow me if you would like but it is  not a requirement!

Ok My Bloggy Friends it is time for you to hop on over to the next blog, which is my fabulous co-host Zeni@ Scrappy Zeni and check out what awesomeness she has created! Thanks for stopping by and have an AWESOME weekend!!

Love the explosion box. The theme is really cool. I am sure your friend is going to LOVE it. It's funny, when I saw it opened with the characters each in their own space, I thought "office cubicles" and something similar would be great from a group of people in an office setting! So you sparked an idea for me.
