Baby Boy Memory Box

The second part of my Christening gift was to make a memory box so that mum could keep all the little bitz n pieces of her little bubbas first years all together. I have never attempted this kind of project before so it was a bit of a learning curve for me. I think it turned out ok though. I wanted a sort of shabby chic look to the paint. The first coat was an off white. I then went over it with Tim Holtz distress inks and then with the off white emulsion and then sanded it down to give a distress look.
From a plain box bought from Hobbycraft
to my finished project

inside the lid

I also made a tooth fairy box that will sit inside the memory box


I am entering this project into A Spoon Full Of Sugar challenge that is Flower Power
I have flowers on the lid of the Memory Box

Christening Card

I thought I would show you a Christening card I made for my God Daughters son.
It is a trifold card. I got out my punches and embossing folders for this one
there are no design papers at all! I bought the die cut cross from Ebay and
worked the card around it. I made the little flower from punched flowers and added pearls

I printed a verse from a card making cd I have and then cut it out with my Nesties Lables

The digi image is from Sliekjestamps it is so cute
I coloured it with my promarkers and added some pearl paint to the wings

I also made a matching box for the card
A long post? lol well the card took a long time to make also haha
I am going to enter this card into the following challenges

One Stop Craft Challenge - Texture  (embossing)
Cute Card Thursday - Embellish It (pearls flowers & ribbon)
Charisma Cardz Challenge - Something Thant Flies (the cute little angel)

The Paper Shelter Challenge 16 Glad For Dad

This weeks challenge @ The Paper Shelter
is Glad For Dad
I have used a coloured image from the Giraffes images from TPS

I went for the coloured and made a 3d decoupage sheet from them in my
PSP software. I also made the bunting in the same colours. The cloud backing is a free download sorry not sure where from as there are no T&C's in the folder downloaded. I made an insert to match also that says
Just Flying By To Say
Have A Happy 
Fathers Day
I forgot to take a pic of that! 

Hope you will join our challenge
