Tim Holtz Box

By the time you read this I'll be on my way to hospital, but I wanted to share you this project that I did for my friends daughter birthday, which i today , Its a Tim Holtz configuration box which is today (15th), I did one for her Mum has a thank you a few months ago (sorry forgot to take photos) and she loved it so much that I decided to make one for her.

Now I was being completely lazy when I start this and just couldn't be bothered cutting out all the papers to fit the small boxes or even cover the outside of the box, So I stamped the outside of the box, and misted the inside, which I think has worked really well.

I added the '10' domino to represent her age, and the 'owl' is from a necklace from Primark.

I found this cat fridge magnet in a Charity shop, I added some distress ink around the edges, has it looked 'too much' in the normal state.

The Maya Road Bingo tiles '15' and '6' for her birthday.

Her initials, small bottle filled with tiny stones, TH stamps 'limited edition'

Found this little bottle of 'fairy dust' on holiday next to the checkout - its amazing what you can find when you queueing up, which was just the right size, the pink flower was again from a bracelet from Primark,

I hope she likes it, when I showed her Mom, she hugged me and said that she felt like crying ... which I took as a compliment ... well I hope it was LOL.

Thanks for stopping by, come back tomorrow to see my lovely stash from Studio Calico that arrived this week and waiting for me to get better to cut into it.

Thanks for stopping by ...
