I think I can!

My son has to go in for a medical test. While the test is in no way invasive or painful, it is long - we're talking at least three hours. He's a boy. He doesn't sit for three hours! So to help keep him contained in the office I thought a surprise might be in order. I took the FREE Cutesy Cover from My Time Made Easy and dolled it up just a bit for the boy.

I went with his favorite theme - trains. I used the, now retired, circus train from Stampin Up to wrap it's way around the box going up the "mountain."

And then I added the famous line from one of his favorite books, The Little Engine that Could.

I finished it off with a couple of buttons since the child loves my buttons. And adjusted the top so it would close by just tucking in the lid like a deck of cards. Then I filled it up with a new matchbox (boys are so easy!), some treats, and some of the new school papers from My Time Made Easy so he could practice his letters. A perfect, simple little surprise to help the time pass.

Stampin' for the Weekend: Your Favorite book (in this case, my son's)

Thanks for looking.
