Hi all, I have been waiting for the weather to clear so I could take some photos of an OTP project I have been working on for "Lets Get Shabby" February challenge. It is still very gray outside but at least it has stopped raining for the moment.
Over at Lets Get Shabby, the challenge for February was to use your imagination and create something which must include a love letter or message. I chose to create a "Box of Love" that could hold all the precious cards, notes and letters that my girls and husband have given me over the years.
I have adhered a scanned copy of a message from two of my daughters to the inside flap of the box. I just couldn't bear to cut the original. (That was the year I got a Cuttlebug for Mother's Day). To help keep the flap shut, I used metal magnets. I concealed one half by using a clock face rub-on and turned it into a feature (image 9).
I had a lot of fun playing with all sorts of bits and pieces as well as some different techniques. Thanks to the girls from Lets Get Shabby, I now have a special box that I can keep all that love stored safely inside.
Thanks again girls for a fun challenge.
Hugs, Irene xx
