Be sure to leave a comment on all the DT's blogs by midday Monday as we all have two stamps to give away, and the winners will be posted on Monday evening.
Now that's the formalites out of the way, here's the exploding box I made for my Daughter's birthday on Monday, thought this little Sassy image was ideal. I've come to the conclusion though that exploding boxes should be a summer project, trying to photograph this has been nightmare, it's too dark and orangey inside and outside it's either raining or trying to blow away in the wind, plus they are not the easiest to photograph and really don't do the project justice but here we go:-
This is the box closed, the colours are chocolate brown and teal, the colour of my Daughter's bedroom, well when you can see it amongst the piles of clothes and mess, lol.
A view looking down on it so you can see all the panels.
Here she is open, isn't she just a darling!
This is how the box is currently sitting in our lounge, standing proud and make up in hand, just like my daughter.
A close up of two of the panels so you can see the lace, swirls, beads, ribbon and little pockets. One contains a tag which I have written on, the other contains the sentiment.
And finally the little beauty on her own. She's ready for the town!
