So Very Proud!

Hi Everyone! 

Today our house is full of super exciting news!!  My husband is currently a 4th year medical student and, since he joined the Army, he'll be doing an Army residency.  Which brings me to the exciting news-- today is military match day, which means he finds out where he'll be doing residency, and, more importantly for me, where we'll be moving!  Needless to say, he matched into a general surgery residency and we couldn't be happier! 

In order to celebrate the occasion, I made him this little box:

I started by making a cute 3x3x1 box out of some pretty turquoise paper.  I then decorated the top of the box with Dewey Decimal paper by Lawn Fawn.  I thought this was so perfect for a school related gift!  At my local craft store, I found these cute doctor-themed embellishments, so I added the stethoscope and some Metzenbaum scissors to the top.  So cute, right? 

I used Smitty's ABCs for both the front and the inside sentiment: 

I also added some little pill bottles that were in the embellishments package-- so fun!  The sides of the box are decorated with the interlocking backdrops stamped in some pool ink.  Inside the box is a surgeon's cap, so he can wear his alma mater with pride!  Hooray! 

Thanks for visiting today!!
