Welcome back!

It's half way through November (and 5 1/2 weeks until Christmas EEEKKKK)
and time for another challenge at 

Challenge 20:

This is the box I created using one of Eileen's boxes.

All sides are covered with art, hearts and little inspirational phrases.
I even dug into my hoarded stash of Gelli Print scraps to finish it off.
I can rotate it on a whim, always changing what I am sharing.

Feel free to scroll as I have tried to share photos from almost all sides…
