A Box And A Spoon

8 months is SUCH a cute age. Everything is interesting, Mommy and Daddy are still very funny and a box and a spoon can be the best toys ever! I had such fun watching him play. Crawling in and out, throwing the spoon (a part of his Montessori mystery box) and laughing all the time. He ended up sitting in the box and chewing on the spoon. 

Brown and green are not colors I usually work with but in this case, it matched DS's shirt perfectly. 

The idea with the zipper came from Lisa Gregory. THANKS for the inspiration, Lisa!!!!

I used 3 different letter series for the title. The Box is covered with stickles (too bad it does not glitter on the photo), the & is from et cetera (Bo Bunny) and the Spoon is covered with crackle paint and then toned down a bit with walnut stain to match the colors a bit better.

 This time, I hid the journaling in a paper roll. I just did not have space on the layout and it added dimension to the page. 

I loved mixing the different Bo Bunny paper series. Here I used weekend market and et cetera. They work great together. 

Here it is all opened up.  

Since this post was all about my boy, here is a cute picture of my sweet girl (got to keep the balance!!!)

Thanks for stopping by!
All the best, 


  1. Hallo Elisabeth,
    dein LO ist toll geworden und mit dem Reißverschluß ein richtiger Hingucker.
    Michi ist so süß wie er mit dem Löffel spielt.
    Ich beobachte auch die kl.Lia immer beim Spielen, sie findet auch alles interessanter als ihr Spielzeug. Vielen Dank für deinen lieben Kommentar.
