Mr & Mrs

Evening all, had a good week ?

We have survived the first week back at school even though it wasn't a full one, so hopefully the morning routine will be smoother next week !

I have now finished the wedding project I mentioned previously. It was for a friend at work who is getting married abroad and although it took a while I am pleased with the finished results.

I started with one boring , brown box.............

and lots of painting, inking and stamping later I created this memory box for her to keep her special mementos in..................

The papers are from SU but they are from the sadly retired Bella Bleu range. Thought if I was going to buy some new papers I'd better use some of the ones that retired a year ago lol !

Hubby couldn't understand why I spent ages painting the box white only to 'dirty' it again ! His words not mine lol !

The sides are decorated with hearts from I {heart} Hearts with pretty pearls.

The plaque on the top is cut from chipboard as I wanted it to be chunky, but it shows how easily the Big Shot cuts through thicker material- even the perforations are perfect !

More stamping, inking and embossing and the Fun Flower is finished off with some Tiny Tags.

Hope you like ? Come back next time and I'll show you the card and what I made to put inside.

Have a good weekend x
