Welcome Baby with a Precious Memories Keepsake Box

Morning everyone, I'm home after some fun shows at Create and Craft and have been enjoying our April sunshine and planting a few plants in the garden. 
I'm really excited to be sharing today's project over on the graphic 45 blog along with a fabulously talented Romy Veul who's also sharing a delightful baby card.  Here's the link if you'd like to head over and take a look. 

I went for a crisp blue theme for my This N' That Baby Box (kits are now back in stock) but it would look just as gorgeous altered in pink. The box was painted with Sky chalk acrylic paint by Paperartsy and then altered using Puppy Dog Tails, Precious Memories and Pat a Cake 12 x 12 papers.  I love the creamy colours of the patterns and solids and used pale blue 6 x 6 paper to alter the trinket tray and to make the flowers and cover the oval on the lid.  The paper weight is perfect for flowers. There's a few more pictures below and a full supply list too if you fancy making one yourself.

    I really enjoyed watching your shows on C&C, I'm looking forward to receiving my Once Upon a Springtime bundle, I have just received my Precious Memories pads, they are truly beautiful.
    I have been gardening and planting this afternoon and my back is now complaining hahaha. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  5. Loved your C&C shows but doesn't one of the presenters go on? You can almost lose the will to live at times. Ha Ha. The baby box is gorgeous, just wish that I had somebody to make it for. So glad that I got the ABC Primer collection and can't wait to get started making an album for my niece's 7 year old. Just got back from the garden center with 3 bags of compost so I'm ready for some 'potting' on later this afternoon, but it's freezing up here so once again my window sills are looking like a jungle. Roll on the sunshine. Hugs xx Pauline A
