MAWTT 1st Birthday Challenge...

Its MAWTT 1st birthday celebrations on their blog this week, with the challenge being to make something for a birthday, but not a card!. There is also a blog hop with the DT, who are offering their own challenges as well. The prize on the MAWTT blog is some lovely Gorjuss Girls stamps.
So here goes... for my project I made an Explosion Box , as it happens to be my sisters birthday this week, and this has one of her pressies inside- should be safe to show, as she doesn't look at my blog anyway!!

Items Used:
Bazzill card & sugar coated brads; Quickutz heart die.; mirror card; Basic Grey paperpad; Prima flowers; peel-off stickers & ribbon from stash. The edges were lightly distressed with a brown inkpad.

I went through a phase of making these a while ago... might have to do some more for a SU class....!

Well, must go as the ironing beckons, as does the sunshine- shame I cannot do the ironing outside at the moment, with all the mess from the building going on. Must post some pictures to show how its coming along.

Hope you all enjoy the rest of this gorgeous weekend- make sure you put plenty of sunscreen on and thanks for spending the time looking at my blog.....
