Altered Box Vintage Style!

Morning folks, hasn't been any time for blogging or crafting this past week. Was itching to settle down and finish my altered box for Simply Create. My DT box of goodies landed on my doorstep over a week ago and the beginning of last week was the first opportunity I had to get my hands on it. Started to play around with my altered box and has lain and teased me until, finally got some me time last night to add the finishing touches.
MME papers roughed up a tad and distressed with TH Mahogany and Vintage Photo. Emobssed MME Holly Folly images with Ranger gold embossing powder, added buttons  (all available from the shop, online coming soon). Fixed lid with recycled elastic (don't worry, not from my undies!). My tealightsd I glittered with gold glitter spray.

Gorgeous Carol. Great gift if you could bear to give it away.

You going to Glasgow? Bus load of us going on Sunday. Going to meet Debbi at last and of course visit Kath and Lorraine.
