Coffee, Cream & Cookies Gift Box




I've found a new challenge to join in today called
Kaboodle Doodles
My good friend Angie is on the DT & its her turn to do the challenge this week. She has picked anything but a card.
I have also combined this challenge with the one over at
Die Cut Dreams
which is a theme of "Coffee & Cream" I don't have any papers in coffee & cream colours these were the closest I could find in my stash. I would have loved to have bought some (good excuse to shop) but hubby has the car :-(
Oh well I am really pleased with how this turned out. I think it will make a great gift with some coffee & biscuits inside ...what do you think?

Its a gorgeous gift box Helen and if you wrapped the cookies in tissue paper you could then use the box for craft goodies when all eaten lol.

About me...

......I thought its probably time I should update my About me info! So here goes.... I am currently 36 years old (as of June 2017) I live in Selby with my husband and son who is (at present) 4 and a half years old.... my son not husband πŸ˜†
I suffer with CFS/ME, Fybromyalgia, anxiety and depression. They take up a large amount of my energy and time along with my family so I need an out, something for me and that is Ellephantastic. It's my creative life. Being creative, being inspired by other peoples creativity and inspiring others with my creativity are what keep me going. As well as the love I have for my family, but that goes without saying because who couldn't love this dude?

I love all kinds of crafting and creativity, knitting, art, baking, photography, paper crafting....anything really!
I have spent a lot of time the past 2 to 3 years working on myself and trying different avenues. E.g businesses, counselling, medication, diet.....all sorts! Every time though I have end…

Ellephantastic Cakes

Froggy I thought I would share with you today some cakes I have made over the last year and a bit. Who doesn't love cake? Right! Froggy was a chocolate cake decorate to match my niece's frog themed birthday.
Baby Giraffe Baby giraffe was a treacle sponge cake made for my niece who loves Giraffes Really pleased with how it turned out.


Rose Garden
These are cupcakes and I made a box for them by decorating a large cake box and making my own insert. I made them for my mum as a surprise  They are treacle cupcakes ....yum!




Chocolate Cakes All the cakes I have made have been for my family 
Hope I haven't made you hungry!!
