DT Friday at CSDivas: Altered Taco Box

It's Friday and that means I am creating and posting for 
I am highlighting an altered item I finished to give to my daughter Ariana.  

A while back, you may recall, I had made a few "special boxes" for my kiddos.  If you would like to peek at those, click HERE to see Lance Jr.'s and HERE to see Gabriella's.  My intentions were to make one for each of the three smaller kids.  Well, as my mind wandered down new paths, and I got caught up in other crafts probably, I neglected to finish a box for sweet little Ariana. 
Mommy is so sorry honey!  I Love You!  
I would love it you would stop over, browse around
The Mansion (our blog) and become a follower if you like what you see.   

I am entering my project into the following challenges:
