One more challenge creation :)

….Just for good measure …of course :)

I managed to get a few hours without the little Chloe monster today :) So i took the opportunity to join in with the Stampavie Challenge  The challenge is easter. Well i don’t ‘do’ easter cards etc but i did have to alter a paper mache box for easter to put some choccies inside to give as a gift…rather than an egg! I find that this is a great way of giving inexpensive gifts to someone.If you have a ‘cheap’ gift,then decorate up a box to give the gift in.That way it makes it more special ,plus the person receiving it not only gets the gift inside, but also a pretty keepsake box. I do this all the time with choccies. I always buy chocs that you can take out of the packaging (ones that are individually wrapped')

…So anyways…heres me ‘easter’ box :)

This gave me an ‘excuse’ to play with one of me gorgeous Sarah Kay images. How i lubs these images as i remember them from childhood *Which no seems like oh so long ago* lol For some reason when i think of easter and create anything for it i always think of the colours blue,yellow,orange and green!! Why ??? Are these easter colours ? *Or am i just weird for thinking that they are?….lol* Either way those are the colours that i used.

I obviously had to do the ‘distressing’ thing with the Mr Holtzy stuff didn’t i , and just a tad of paper pricking…lol I just have to have detail. I think that just by adding tiny details to something it can make it look sodifferent..even if it’s something quite plain. I’ve had this roll of green gingham for like…forever…I know i would use some of it eventually…haha

The pics aren’t so great as it’s dark, so leccy lighting and me flash *Not a great combination* I had to photograph it this evening as in the morning it will have left here….forever

  Those chocs are sooooo delish *I just tried 2* haha How could i not..they just screamed Eat me! Eat me! So i obviously obliged ;)

Shaz, I love the way you decorated your paper mache' box. Usually, I cover mine fully but putting panels as you've done seem to enhance it a bit better. Your coloring of your image is incredibly gorgeous. I'm like you - one must taste the goodies one is giving away. :)
