Hi Everyone!

Happy Friday! I am so happy it will be Bank Holiday Weekend soon! We are supposed to be getting some gorgeous Weather to! Lets hope so. I hope you have a great Weekend whatever you do :-)

I am really excited about today's project, i think its so cool! Basically, from the outside it just looks like an ordinary box, however when you open it up, its anything but ordinary! Its a mini album! How cool???

I did see a project like this on another site but i can not seem to find it now. I saw the idea but used my own measurements etc. I really love this project and i loved making it to. Please do not think for one minute that this project is hard! Believe me when i say its very simple, it really is. Its not the quickest thing to make but its worth it!



My box was made with Berry burst 12 x 12" card, Whisper white card and the share what you love DSP. I also used Dragonfly dreams thinlits and celebrate you thinlits which will be carrying over to the new annual catalogue!
