Last Chance to Sale-a- brate !

 Happy Saturday to you !

Bit dull and dreary here this morning, mind you we didn't get up very early as we went to a 40th birthday party last night- I'm not very good at late nights !

Todays projects were VERY, even for me lol ! Picture the scene, I had bought a bracelet for the birthday girl and decided to make a pillow box to package it

 No problem,  as this die is so quick to use, but I decided to use some of the Sale-a-bration paper which meant I had to rethink my card I had planned.

Anyway, this is what I came up with........................

I then decided it would be a good idea to cover a large plain box I had so that Tracey could use it to keep all her birthday cards and mementos from her special day.

Sounds like a lovely afternoon crafting doesn't it ? Only problem was, I didn't start any of this til 4pm and the party started at 7.30 !!!
As well as crafting, I had to feed the tribe, do my hair , get changed etc and also factor into the equation that I am hobbling about on crutches at the moment due to my knee problem and everything takes me twice as long !
This is how the box turned out ...................

Once I'd finished I had a slight panic when I realised I didn't have enough wrapping paper to wrap my new, larger gift- so quickly out came the ink again and I stamped some parcel paper.............

I don't recommend crafting under such tight timescales but I was pleased with the final result and Stampin Up makes it sooo easy to coordinate everything

Hope you like ?

The only thing I didn't get done was paint my nails - but I did go out with Calypso Coral on my fingers lol !
