Theresa @ Scrappers Anonymous 



So, first you need to know WHY I chose this as my project...... My son Austin, 6, is always leaving me "mail" in my pocketbook. Fills out the envelop "his way" and everything. Then he tells me, "Mom, it looks like there is something sticking out of your pocketbook. You better check it out."  They are always little notes thanking me for making him lunch, or doing something or just notes to say I love you.
So, with Austin in mind, I decided to make us some mail boxes!! This file by My Scrap Chick also comes with little postage stamp cards, which I made 3 of to have on hand to "mail" back to him!




He got SO excited when he saw these..... and the mail started right away!!! lol He put his card from me in his scrapping box because he wants to keep it forever! How sweet is he!?!?!? 

Now, you all want a chance at some candy?? Of course you do!!
I have a 4 piece set of some beach bears, from the "Beach Bears 1" file from  My Scrap Chick.

Happy Scrappin'
