Gift Box Make-over .....

Hi everyone,

So sorry for posting so little, but battling with Bronchitis at the mo, on top of my son still not fixed-up, lol, the cist has been drained and some of the swelling has gone down, but not enough and his jaw still locked too tight to open wide enough for them to cut out the two, yes it's two now cause the one has actually damaged the tooth next door , so he also has to go..............:(( As soon as that is fixed, he will actually be able to eat properly again...............:))

Have done something completely different than my normal, yikes what is normal, lol, but there is such a fun challenge over at Recycle, Re-purpose and Re-Invent , the challenge blog of CS Designs .
It is a Ánything Goes'challenge and you have to use one re-cycled item on your project.

Now mine is a total re-cycle, lol, i took a gift box that looks like a milk carton, recieved some choccies in it over Xmas, painted a few layers of Gesso over the whole box to cover the original printing. then took a black ink pad and dabbed spots all over and before it was dry, took a piece of cottonwool and whiped over that in soft stoke movements. On the one side i added my image , slightly colored with some added gems and then another re-cycled item added, i punched some flowers from the lid of a coffee tin and added a gem as centre piece, lovely flower, don't ya think .....:))the other sides were decorated with some scraps, gems and some more punched tin lids, lol , please excuse any spelling mistakes, this head of mine is really fuzzy, lol

We have to anser a Q : What is the weirdest item you are hoarding and what will you do with it?????
Well, i have a piece of the bask of a tree that has been sitting there waiting for me to use, still need to finish an abstract piece that has been an UFO for so long, but i will get to it...........hehehehe, not sure which year, but yeah.......

Oh yes, one other thing, i punched a hole at the top and added some ribbon for that extra color..............:))
Thanks for visiting, hope you like, see ya soon!!

My son has such pain, his molar tooth is growing sideways instead of upright and is now aggainst his jaw, which in turn causes his muscles to go into knots , so much so that he cannot even open his jaw and can only have something like drinking yoghurt, and on top of that, lol no end is there, it has caused infection and a cist!! So today we had to spend time at the hospital to try and get it fixed, only now the swelling and it is huge, shame poor baby, has to go down 1st before they can cut out the tooth/teeth, we're not sure yet. Please keep him in your prayers, he is in such a lot of pain!!

Now onto something fun, lol, i made a card for this weeks challenge over at Squigglefly and used an image by Gemma Mortlock called Mothers Day Girls and you can find it in the SHOP together with lots and lots of other super fun images , lol, jumping ahead here , am i.......

So good to see ya again, lol, mojo is totally hiding from me, so this weekend ( we have a long weekend with Friday and Monday being a public holiday, yayyyyyyy) i am going to try and get hold of him, any tips will be appreciated,lol

In my post HERE , you can read how to fix it by changing your comments settings to pop-up, it really worked for me and know it will do the same for you..............:))

CASEing is such Fun!!!

Hi everyone,

How are you on this lovely day, ok, maybe morning or night, right, now nearly 8.45pm here, people ate, dogs fed, yikes it feels like i just ran the marathon, lol

The new challenge is up over at Squiggleffly and what a fun theme for this week!! You are asked to CASE a card of one of Squigglefly' DT ladies , which is the ultimate compliment to someone, of coarse you change things around a bit, just so that it is not a replica, lol, then i won't be your own, right...............:))

Now i had so much fun looking again at all their creations, can really say i was so much inspired, boy was it difficult to choose one!! And suddenly this card pops up , not a Squigglefly DT card, sorry , but i just love the simplicity of the design, and it was done by Rhonda which you can see HERE , have a look, gorjuss!!

My lay-out is basically the same, but i used an image from Fawn Palmer called Chiharmony and those that visit me often, knows that i use one of these often, just love the versatility and there quite a few of these, just visit the STORE and see the variety and much more...........:))

Changed my ribbon to be tied on the other side, adding a pin and a cameo. A flower and some of my fav's, pearls complete the card, must say, i quite like the end result, hope you do too...........:))

So, what are you waiting for, lol, jump on over and join in the fun!!! Later alligator.......................:))
