I have been missing in action for the last few days - and this is the reason !
I have been getting down and dirty with the Modge Podge LOL.
I wanted a cute purse to take to my gatherings which will hold my pens, calculators etc & this is what I
came up with. I LOVE the Perfect Day Level 2 paper pack and used it to decorate the outside of a wooden box and tag, which I bought from Michaels the craft store.
I added the matching stickease and then went to town with the Sparkles and ribbon and a WHOLE HEAP of ink distressing. The lid has a dimensional element bookplate and bigger brads to hold it in place and also eatures a chocolate colored rub-on border.
This photo shows Me, Mandy and Victoria with a Roman guard! We were off to spend the day touring Rome - 1st stop - the Colosseum.I love this stamp set with the tickets on it - so cute. I added the brads for some texture.
At this end of the box I added a circular stamped image and the sentiment from the stamp set
which matches this gorgeous paper. Yes and more sparkles :O)
A positive bevy of beauties :O)
Claire - my older sister is on the left,Victoria is sitting next to here - then me - and last but certainly not least - my younger sister Rachel (affectinately knows as Dora Turkey LOL). The word Memories is a rub on.
I found these architectural elements in a scrapbook store which has since closed down.
This is the other 'end' of the box with a photo of Me, Kristine, Victoria and Holly in Pompeii. It was a fabulous day full of giggles. Again the stickease and sparkles add a great element. The Tag shows a photo of Mandy Victoria and I in one of the many photos we had taken by the ships photographers.
Here is the other side of the tag - a photo of the harbor as we approached Capri - again stickease and a sparkle add a fun touch.
