This is it! You are in for a treat! The entire Joy's Life Design Team is sharing their 3D summer themed projects with you, plus there's blog candy along the way.  Grab your favorite beverage, sit back and relax, and enjoy the hop.  Here's the entire lineup in case you get lost along the way.
Julie: (you are here)
Laura: (go here next)
Stacey H:

I found the inspiration for this project while on a motorcycle ride through NW WI a couple weekends ago.  The daisies were in full bloom.  We went past field after field of daisies.  They were so beautiful.  They were truly inspirational, and I wanted to make something to remember our great ride by, so I came up with this:
I found this box file in the Silhouette store here.  I thought it was perfect for what I had in mind.
Here's another view of my 3D box...
You can see the depth of the box a little better in this view.  The box is layered, first being made out of green, then there's the white layer on top.
I used the Joy's Life "Pun in the Sun" stamp set on this box.  It is a very versatile set. I find myself using it ALL the time!
I have blog candy to give away! I have a 6x6 paper pad, some ribbon, stickers, and bling.  To be eligible, please follow my blog and leave a comment on this post.  To increase your chances to win, you can comment on the posts from Thursday through today (there are quite a few!).  I will choose a winner early next week.
Now, for even more great inspiration, hop over to Laura's blog.  You'll LOVE what she has for you!

  25. This definitely says "summer" to me. I also get a lot of inspiration when I'm riding with my husband (being on a motorcycle must do that--maybe the open, fresh air??). I can just picture the field of daisies that inspired you to create this box. I may have to case it for a card. It's just too nice. Thanks for sharing it with us at Crafty Creations this week. Good luck.
