With Love

Hi everyone, hope your weekends are going to plan. I've been busy doing some housework and laundry but the rest of the day is mine :) I spent some time in the craft room last night and in my endeavours to use up some stash  I made an exploding box from a Joanna Sheen kit which I've had forever.




The kit came with the box, inner layer, lid, heart pictures and flower dies. I've added a red mirri card layer to each side panel on the bottom layer and inner lid, a purple die cut, red heart nestie, some lace, pearls, ribbon roses and a tag to jazz things up. The little purple hearts are punch waste.

Challenges entered:
Karens Doodles - valentines/love
CRAFT - celebration
Pixie Dust Studio - put your heart into it
Just Tracy - love is in the air
Little Claires - anything but a card
Sweet Stamps - hearts
Joanna Sheen - celebrations
