Autumn Time Altered Box

The other day I was sitting watching my daughter play soccer and saw this...

Not very common around these parts....made me a little home sick for MA...miss those gorgeous fall colors and the crisp fall feeling in the air....Then I got a prize pack in the mail from Bo Bunny from a Blog Hop with their beautiful "Autumn Song" collection.  This is what I created:

I just HAD to use that paper with the leaf I loved it so much.  So I created an altered box with the leaf as the main feature....

Here is the inside of the box where I added more paper and some embellishments.
  I really wanted to give this to my mom as a gift so I added a picture of her and my stepfather to make it more personal.  Thanks for visiting!

I would like to enter this into the Frosted Designs challenge, where the theme is "giving a gift."
I am also entering it into the Dreamweaver challenge whose theme is "celebrations," and I am celebrating autumn with this gift. Lastly is the Scrapping 4 fun challenge which is "anything goes."

FYI: Scrapping4funchallenges is a blog I have recently discovered and they are having a design team call for scrappers with the term being Jan-April 2014. I am going to apply because I think they seem like a really fun place to be a part of, with oodles of talented DT members and great challenges. I  would be thrilled with an opportunity to make some creations for them. Maybe you would like to apply as well?  They are accepting applications until November 29th.
