Small gift for the hostess

Since it's Valpurgis we're going to barbeque with some friends this evening. The weather is crappy but the company will be good so it won't matter =) The guys that will be there are devoted gamers so hopefully Amanda will be a happy bunny playing Wii with some of them and we won't have to go to a bonfire and be scared senseless by the firecrackers. Fingers crossed!

I altered this little After Eight box to bring as a gift to the hostess and thought I'd show it before I dash off. And I noticed that it fits the Polka Doodles challenge this week too, how convenient =)

Oh, how gorgeous. Never thought of altering an after eight box - a perfect Christmas present idea. Love the image, never thought of cropping her like that - it looks perfect.
By the way, thank you for telling me I had word verification on, recently changed my editor and I hadn't realised it was on. I hate it and I imagine so do loads of other people so thank you for telling me. Hev:)

I like what you've done with the box, so pretty. I see the chocolates are still in there or are they empty wrappers? :) Thanks for joining in at Polkadoodles this week.
