Purple Wedding Box xxx

Evening lovely bloggers, hope your all well and not having this dreadful weather? Whats it like??? Its pouring, rivers running down the road and thunder and lighting!! Where's the summer went?

Well sorry I haven't been around for a few days, so busy getting my stuff ready for the fayre next Saturday! I had a bit of a disaster, 15 yes 15 of my poor boxes got totally squashed and are beyond repair! I stupidly stuck another box on top of my box then stuck a pile of scrapbooks on top, how stupid can one lil person be! I saved some of the bits off them but a totally waste of card! So I'm making as many as I can!
Anyhows, the Lovely Dawn asked me to make this wee box for her friend that got married this week!


Ingredients:
12x12 Ivory card - Papermill
Purple texture card - Hobbycraft
mirror card - Papermania
image - woodware
flowers - Wild Orchid craft
loads of glitter

everything else form stash





So what you think? I think they are all getting very similar are is it just the colour? I've been making purple invites for 3 Weddings this year and maybe that's why it feels same same?? Hmm not sure?

Cant wait to hear your thoughts, thanks for popping by!

Oh my gosh Melly... I am floored! This is gorgeous! Who knew that these dort of things could be made with paper? :) I love it. Great work! Sorry to hear about your boxes... turn the coffee on and scrap throught the night!

This is gorgeous Melly. I love colours like purple, lilac etc.

What a disaster with your boxes. You must have been pretty upset after all your hard work. Hope you get as many re-made as you can in time for the fayre.

I made my first DT card for CCM after work today but I'm waiting to take a photo tomorrow in the hope that it's brighter than today. Doesn't look like it though at the moment. I'm a bit nervous even though I've been on two design teams for a while now. Hope it's ok.
