Merry Christmas everyone....as our Xmas day draws to a close many of you are only starting or about to wake up to the festivities of the day!! I am at my mum's house and was lucky enough to to spend Xmas Eve and Day with all my brothers and sisters and their kids and partners. There were what seemed hundreds of presents that took hours to wrap and sort and only 90 mins to unwrap and enjoy!!! So now as we wind down (or nearly fall asleep) I thought I better catch up on some blog posts (cos I ran out of time).
Yesterday saw a new challenge start at CYP and Seems a Little Sketchy. At Seems a little Sketchy we are sponsored by Whimsy stamps and at Craft Your Passion we are sponsored by the Robin's Nest and the challenge is to alter something so we don't want to see any cards this time round!! So I had a box that has been sitting on my desk for ages, so I decided to decorate it with some papers that I had just been given for free. Turned out absolutely perfect!!
This is the top of the box and I followed the Seems a Little Sketchy sketch. The image is  from a Graphic 45 pad I had, so no stamping at all this time!! I used my new let it snowflake die from MFT and put kindyglitz on them all for a bit of sparkle!!
And because the paper was so busy I decided just to add a thin ribbon around the outside.
Well that is it from me.. Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!! I'll be back in  few hours with another post!!
