Let's Get Shabby - Easter Challenge

I wasn't sure if I would make the deadline for this challenge. What with moving into a bigger craft room and setting up my new computer things were looking rather tight around here. But I have managed to finish my entry for Let's get Shabby and managed to take some photos before the light faded.

I have to say that I had so much fun with this project. We were asked to create a layout etc which was inspired by Easter. I had a balsa wood box just asking for a make over so I turned it into a gift box. My plan is to create a mini album each year at Easter and this little box will hold all of those precious memories.

Since it is realted to Easter, I made a little basket using pp and asertate (from product packaging). I edged the asertate with texture paste and fine glitter and a rub-on (which reads "Hoppy Easter"). To finish off the project, I made a little mini album. There is a tutorial that I used but for the life of me, I can't find it. You use one 12x12 cardstock and make 3 cuts then fold. If anyone has seen this tutorial, please let me know so I can give credit where credit is due.

Thanks for stopping by,
Hugs, Irene xx
