Something a bit different...

Hiya! Sorry I've been a bit quiet for a while but I've been on my hols :-) But I'm back now and I've been spending a silly amount of time crafting since I got back... Partly cos I've missed it while I've been away, and partly because of this little box! I started it a good while ago but it's taken me aaaaages! I've spent HOURS on it since I got back. Covered the whole thing, inside and out (lid too!) and then cutting and fixing those little letters so they fitted just perfectly... Anyway, I'm really pleased with the outcome. I wanted to make something a bit special for my pal who's getting married this week and I thought this would be lovely for her to keep little wedding memories in.
It is a bare basics box covered in Dovecraft wedding papers. I've used my scalloped circle nesties and the Bang! Zoom! sizzlets to cut out the letters. The ribbons, gems and flowers are from my stash.
I'm entering it into the following challenges:
Pollycraft Monday Challenge - Love and Marriage
Sarah Hurley Challenges - Anything goes
Sir Stampalot Challenge - Bring on the Bling
The Crafty Pad - Ribbons and Flowers

Hope you like it!
Love 'n' hugs,
Mel xx
