Boxing clever...

Today an altered box.

This was the original one I liberated from my mum. Apparently she had a regular supply that has, alas, now dried up. The demise of the independent corner newsagent. She has a few more sitting on her shelf, they might not be there long.



Once again kickstarted by a Craft Stamper Project and a challenge at the Crafty Emblies Challenge Blog ( Toy, Toy Box or Toy). This challenge blog is only for altered art, no cards and atcs allowed.

It's amazing what you can do with a bit of paint and and embossing powder. The box base took no time at all, the bits to decorate a little longer although that big flower was made some time ago. I won't really be keeping any secrets in it, that's just a bit of whimsy, I don't have any secrets to keep (those that know better should keep that information to themselves).

Back soon.

Wow, it's stunning Cindy!What secrets will you keep in it, I wonder? :-)

BTW Pam Carriker stamps are by Stampington - the only place I've found them in UK is Art from the Heart.

What a beautiful box to work on Cindy and you have made it very special.

I completely forgot to finish my box for the challenge and haven't time to get it done now as there is only 2 hour before it finishes. Hope it fits in with another of their challenges sometime.


Love Chrissie xx
