Altered box, Award and a layout.

From a friend of mine, Jacqueline, I got the idea to alter a wooden box and put all my vintage goodies in there. So, I went to the Dollarama, bought a box, and started having fun.
The outside is painted kind of "old green" and I decorated it with an old line of scrapbooking paper I found. Used some stamps and flowers, and made my own thickers using foam and the sidekick!

The inside of the lid is decorated with paper too, and I glued some old fashioned looking ribbon along the sides and finished the corners off with buttons.

On the outside are some paper strips, stamped with a border stamp. (I used Tea Dye distress ink for all the stamping.)

And this is what's inside......all the vintage goodies I got from friends in the Netherlands! I'm so happy with it, and now I have to clean up my desk again to give it a nice spot!


It's award time again, I love those, and I especially love this one!!! Elly gave it to me, just because she thought I deserved it..... thanks so much girl, I really appreciate it!

Now I'm supposed to pass it on to 6 other people..... which is getting harder and harder, because I love each and every one I visit and who visits me. All your blogs are so inspriring and you all deserve an award like this, so..... consider yourself awarded by me and take it!

Some posts ago, after Christmas I showed a collage of all the Christmas pictures I made last year! I had it printed, and used it for a layout, cause I had so much, that it's almost impossible to use them all, besides in a mini-album and I didn't want that:-)
The layout is a lift from one I saw on the internet, but I have no clue who made it.

I used some rub-ons I got a long time ago, they are in silver, so kind of hard to see. Grungeboard stars, painted silver, and a piece of lace.

And this is the layout.. kind of "busy" with all the pictures in one, but..... I still like it very much! The papers used are Basic Grey Wassail, and "made-myself-thickers" again.

The vintage looking picture I found on the internet and printed it, looks kind of nice I think!
Thanks for stopping by again!

Happy New Year!
I'm back but probably only one page a week for my DT. I stil have a great deal going on at work & the weekends are spent sleeping. I am almost out of ink for my printer & have no spare money for more so am limit to the amount I can product. My Xmas album will have to take a back seat the bills have to come first. I have to find the best part of £300 UK £'s in the next 4 weeks to cover my annual water bills & eat!!! I hate being skint, so this year its a Recylce & use up year. Clear some of the old papers & only play with the new when I have used old!
