Welcoming in the New Year with a Goalkeeper

I'm just loving my newest little project. It sounds very 'soccer mom' to call it my 'Goalkeeper', but it seemed like the perfect name for this sweet little box.

I made this for a local scrapbook store, Express Yourself, in Bethel Connecticut using papers from the Autumn Leaves line "A Rhonna Christmas". My apologies for the photos - I used my son's 'not-so-good' digi camera for these. You've got to see these papers in person. Gorgeous!

This box holds a ring of tags on which I will write my goals for 2008. What I love most about this little box is the little surprise I put in the bottom of the box. It reminds me of those cool coffee mugs that have the little figurine in the bottom of the cup - the thing you see when you finish your coffee. I've got a 3-D plaque with the words 'goals' adhered to the bottom of this box - you see it when you remove your tag ring. I may change that plaque to the word 'focus' - just to keep myself in line and on task for 2008 - LOL!

Here are some pics of my little Goalkeeper:

Have a happy and healthy New Year!
