Whiff of Joy - Coffee & Cream

Think I've just managed by the skin of my teeth to get this challenge completed for the Whiff of Joy challenge - use the lovely colours of Coffee & Cream..

I joined a fab group on the internet called Paper Craft Planet and in their tutorial forum found a template for a Chapel Box. So instead of a card here is my creation using coffee cardstock, and Bo Bunny papers. I distressed all the edges with a pair of scissors and then inked with Rangers Distress Ink Vintage Photo. I punched out a loveheart shape from 2 sides and then popped a square of acetate behind each one. Each of the Bo Bunny papers was stamped along the edge with a swirl stamp from Inkadoo. I then stuck the punched out heart on each of the other sides after inking again with Vintage Photo. Musing Melinda was inked onto Bristol Board and coloured in with Polychromos pencils. I added 2 bags of Mini Eggs, there where 3 bags to start with but we won't go there :O), and then tied together with some ribbon and here it is....

Well onto my next project for Lets Get Shabby - Alice in Wonderland in the garden. Took photos of my eldest grandaughter Eli Mae pretending to talk to a large rabbit!!! What kids will do for an icecream ;O)

TTFN and thanks for looking XX

    So, glad you like it I wanted to email to ask you first but you don't have an email here? Something I should do on mine too.
    Yes, I would love to come to the UK. Maybe in the fall? My daughter might be going aboard in Sept. so, we'll see? ;o)
