Happy Birthday Wishes and a new project

Candy Box Crafts Punch & Judy Box - Graphic 45 By the Sea
Happy Thursday to you.  Its nearly the end of the week again…….. where do they go!.  Roy and Steve have been busy designing some new products for us girlies on the DT to alter and share with you.  The above is a Punch and Judy Box, and as I'm sure you've guessed I've altered it with the By the Sea papers by G45.  I've just confirmed some more Create and Craft shows for the end of the month so thought I'd better get making a few more samples.  I've used bits from everything in this collection, both sized papers, pockets, stickers and some carefully hidden magnets to hold the cute little craft ATC tag album inside the cabinet at the bottom.  I didn't have Punch and Judy puppets to add ingot he Theatre at the top of the box so thought I'd make a sea themed scene.  The waves are cut out using an EK Success punch I bought about three years ago.  It's just perfect for making a wave effect.  Here's a few more pics of the detail. 

If you fancy making one yourself the MDF blank Punch & Judy Box is available to order in our blogshop

Before I head off to glam up for a Birthday meal I'd like to wish Amie (left) and Siany a very happy 21st Birthday today. (The Crafty Elfs twinset as I call them). Loads of love girls xx.  They caught me unaware this morning calling by before I was up, on their way to shop for new dresses to wear on Saturday night.  See you shortly xx
