Laundry time!!!

Well, I had to do some clothes washing to use up the tabs to get the box to alter!!! My daughter - One of the Dragonlettes needed somewhere to store a RAK she received from Paula at Pollys Card Heaven, recently - thank you hun. She supplied a bit of creative direction and I did all the sticking and cutting!!!
The papers are from Scrapbooking mad click on the picture below to find loads of gorgeous stuff and better

still a lot of the kits are on sale - some have more than 80% off.
I have decoupaged some of the flowers and birds and added some gems for bling.
I made the name plate using my Spellbinders labels 4 on pale green glitter card. This had already been put through my Swiss Dots cuttlebug folder - can anyone spot the deliberate mistake!!
The letters are from a Crafters Companion Cute Companions CD Rom and then stuck on with foam pads. Then I put the name plate on the front so that the box can still open - VOILA!!!!!!

Now for all the lovely challenges I will enter -

Creative Inspirations and Tuesday Morning Sketchers both want Anything but a card,

Daring Cardmakers - Tweetie Pie (birds),

Paper Makeup Stamps - No layers and loads of embellishments,

Charisma Cardz - Something for the kids,

Hope you all have a relaxing Sunday evening and see you all next week. I look forward to your thoughts.

Bet Alex loves it - it's fab. Love the lettering. I can't see a mistake on it unless you mean the deliberate act of putting the plaque into the cuttlebug upside down - that's not a mistake it's a happy accident. I think you could start a whole new trend!!!

How fantastic! I just love it and how perfect to store an rak in there! Those papers are yummy and how cute are the flowers! You have more patience than me cutting out and layering!
