What a week!

Evening all! Boy has it been busy week, first week back at school and yet so many died lins to be meet. Stressed doesn't cover it. Anyway i tried to make something to post on here tuesday however din't have the time. Today i finally got the chance to do some crafting!
With Carol and Jane coming over towards the end of the month i wanted to give them a lttle something from myself to signify the friendship im sure will be made. Now i know Carol may be reading this so im not going to say what im giving, however i will show everyone how im giving it to them.
A had a how different idea to what i wanted to do in the first place however i didnt have enough Merina Mist after my Nans birthday cards. Instead i used Elegant Eggplant which is just as nice, don't you think? This is what i came up wit in the end:


Normally i find away of making projects like this really differicult, dont ask me how i just do. Today thought, i found it really simple. Now all i used was was a sheet of Elegant Eggplant, a bit of Baja Breeze and some vellum. Now i used a Sizzix die to do the box and it also cut out the shape in the lid. I used Razzle Dazzle to decorate the Baja Breeze and the sentiment is from Pocket Sillhouettes. I didnt plan on having ribbon on it however it wasnt staying shout  properly therefore i i used the ribbon to keep it closed.

Well thats that, hope you like it! Back soon!
