Nearly forgot....

Haven't felt much like crafting this weekend, just thinking about my friend in her distress.....

but I had made this , and am posting it for The Butterfly Effect's link this week The Perils of Prompts (if you need a bit of mischief in your life right now, check it out ;) ) {that smiley face looks like it has a double chin, just like me!}

This is a gorgeous (but not very expensive) sparkly, I got for the boys to give their Gran for her 80th this month, but the box was a bit boring so.....

I decided to make a new one :D
I had this cardboard one I'd been practising crackle effects on....but it too was way to boring so....

I covered it with PINK tissue paper......

Now it was TOO PINK!!!...... So I covered that with some pretty Floral tissue paper....

and now it looks really cool!! Except the top looked boring so.......
I added flowers :D
and scrunchy pink tissue inside.....

Overall a much more suitable box for such a pretty sparkly :D XXX

This project is for ;
Corrosive Challenge#127 Manly (it's made for my boys ,my men like flowers!)
