Little boxes.............

I've been updating samples of my products for my show stand and decided to use papers from the Portrait of a Lady collection on some of the boxes from our range. I've gone for a green theme (my all time favourite colour) and coordinated a mix of papers together for different looks on each of the boxes. It's such a pretty collection with so many options for co ordinating colour and designs, I have to admit it took me a while to decide on which papers to put with which and I love how they all work so well together. 
A while ago Sophie (the new girlie in the family) asked if I would make beautiful things for her once she had a house to put them in.  Now that's happening I decided to alter the large box (above) into a Memory Box for her.  She loves it and was really touched that I'd added the date of her first date with Oli.  Here's a few more pictures of it taken from various angles:

The number stickers were perfect for the date on the front of the box.  I've got a bit of a stash of vintage G45 large letter stickers that were perfect for the wording in the lid. I'll have to create another sample for the stand once this one heads off to it's new home.  See below for the supply list. 

The medium sized box is our This N that Box with it's sliding trinket tray and the teeny weeny one is my original ATC Box filled with the most amazing ATC's made for me by the lovely ladies in Milford Haven.  

 I had to share them all with you - what a fabulous range of techniques and media used on them all.  Each one has a special message on the reverse too, and I got to come home with some welsh dragons to add to my little collection too.   Thank you ladies - I love them all.
