Hello Everyone
I just wanted to show you the prototype for my daughters hen party invitations. I have made the box using a cream egg box as the template cut a hole in the top to allow the garland out. The flip flop is funky foam and card. I then added a flower garland as it is a tropical hen party and finished with a stamped tag. The invitations instructions are on the base of the box.  
I hope she likes it!
I am going to enter it into these challenges;

Catch the waves

Hello everyone
Today I have made a card for the Gingerloft under the sea challenge with their lovely Dolphin silhouette digital stamp. This card is for my son to celebrate him getting into the British team for Octopush to play in the world championships in Holland.
I have used some recycled garden string, a wave’s image and a catch the waves embellishment to finish.
I will be entering it into these challenges;

A gift for mum


 I made the box using four matchboxes from the template from http://blog.swap-bot.com/rachels-matchbox-template/

The top box is from
http://www.scor-pal.com/dec2_magazine/index_files/Page530.htm (without the handle decorations or window).

Hello everyone
I wanted to make something for my very special mum. She has been a leading light, a bright shining star in my life and a very special person who has shaped my thinking and my carer. So for all of the help she has given me, I wanted to give her something that I wish to help her with, de-cluttering! My mum has always been a little messy so I have made her a tidy box for all of the little bits on her dresser. I hope she likes it!
To make the box I placed four matchboxes onto a thick sheet and then attached a decorated top sheet. Then I glued on the top box and decorated it. I used some lovely vintage papers that I embossed and added a beautiful teen Magnolia Tilda and background stamp which I coloured with copic’s. 

I will be entering it into these challenges:
