FOR MY BIRTHDAY!!!!!! (it's early) my DH gave me not only the most wonderful gift EVAH, he helped me build it!!! The Original Scrapbox! This is really big because if you knew my DH you'd know that he has very little patience but as he gets older is getting more. This project probably called for, not 2 (yes, only 2!!!) blowups but about 40 in the 3 day project. He amazed me this weekend!!! I MEAN AMAZED ME!! I'm still walking around in the state of shock and would love to know who replaced my DH. Nevermind, I'll take this one! LROL!! So a HUGE thanks to my room painter and scrapbox builder, my DH Mike.

Thanks for persisting when I wanted to give up and thanks for finishing this project with me BEFORE the weekend was over. :)

Before pic: I personally loved the blue and red together....NOT!
Please note the lovely green and brown trim. LOVE IT!

I LOVE it! You have a sweetie hubby. Hang on to him. Apparently if you feed him turkey, he responds by building you nice things :) Did everything fit into it? I bet you can't wait to play
