Hi guys,
From many days I was thinking what to make for the 'Itsy Bitsy - Precious Baby Challenge'.Then on saturday I decided to make these BUILDING BLOCKS as I could not think of anything else.I really love how it has come out.

Firstly I made 6 boxes using the box template which I found on the net.then I covered the boxes in pink/purple paper.I added the border using my EK success punch and cut out the alphabets from A-Z and numbers from 0-9 and added them on the box.
