Hello everyone how are you all? I'm running late I'm afraid as we've had no internet for 2 days & only just got it back on...........luckily I have been busy so havn't noticed it too much tbh although I am behind in a few things because of it :-(
Ok so we have a brand new challenge over at Deep Ocean Challenges this fortnight & what's more its our 100th Challenge wooooooo hoooooooo........so pop on over as there are fabulous prizes up this fortnight ;-)
Ok so the theme is a super duper easy one..................
...............told ya, easy peasy ;-) Now mine is actually Easter, well its for an Easter Present but I then want it to sit looking pretty all year round so didnt want it looking Easter-y, yes I'm sure it's a word ;-) Ok lots of pics peeps........
I've gone shabby chic with this as its for my beautiful daughter Natalie...........after Easter it will sit in her bedroom..............well once her room is finished with the building work etc lol....... The image I coloured last week but had no idea what else I was gonna do tbh..........except that it would be for Natalie lol.
Its actually a gift box to house 4 new Walt Disney dvd's, (her fave). As Natalie has never had eggs as she cant eat them...........I know poor girl but she cant eat anything at all :-( This is in place of choccy easter eggs...........she also gets another present but I will show you the packaging for that another time ;-)
The lace around the outisde is from my stash.
The butterfly here is made with a Spellbinders die that I've had for sooooooo long but neglect.......must stop that as this really is gorgeous IRL, love the embossed effect. The centre is a Tim Holtz Pen Nib.........
Both the laces on top, the flowers, the clay heart, the angel & the gorgeous blingy buttons on the lace are all from Live & Love Crafts. The Tulle is the glitter one is OMG so darn pretty IRL. I also added dashings of Gesso everywhere, also from LLC.
The stamp is Magnolia's 'Divine Tilda' which I coloured entirely with distress re-inkers............this is a first for me, sadly my brushes have got a bit naffy so hubster got me some new ones from Amazon at the weekend...... They have just been launched in the UK so got a massive saving. Used them last night for the first time on a couple of different images & they are fabulous..........love love LOVE THEM!!
As you can see inside is decorated as well. After Easter the box is going to be used to store Natalie's Hair Clips............she has LOTS of hair products, bobbles, scrunchie's, hair clips & I'm running out of room so this box will be bigger for her clips. Just need get the other storage boxes sorted lol.
Ok so the utterly gorgeous paper is a new one which I brought for another project which I cannot tell you about yet ;-) I got it in 12x12 & 8x8, however I just used some of the 8x8 for this as luckily the box is 8inches wide. Ok so the paper is First Edition 'The Promise', it really is soooooooo pretty & the colours are so soft. The doilies at either end are La La Land Crafts dies.......of course I need hearts as its for my darling daughter. The other butterfly, swirl & the leaves are Magnolia dies & the butterfly edge is a Tim Holtz die.........one of my faves but neglected I'm ashamed to say.
Ok I now have a screaming daughter so I had better go now & quickly press publish.
Thanks soooooooo much for stopping bby it means the world.
Lotsa hugs form me to you mmwah
Edited to add if madam Natalie takes too long to settle tonight then I will catch up with emails & messages etc tomorrow. I havnt even checked my emails yet or been on Facebook & it probably wont be tonight now as its 11pm nearly & I need try pursuade my daughter that she should go to sleep........... Mmm good luck Vicky lol.........good job she is so darn gorgeous ;-)
