Hey Everyone,

One thing I really enjoy doing is up-cycling , its so much fun making something old look new again!

With inspiration from The Shabby Tea Room's challenge this week I covered this Heart Box in gorgeous "Pion Design" Papers. If you visit "Scappy-Go-Lucky" you will find these papers along with the vintage image papers.

Here is the colour inspiration

The theme is "Soft and Sweet"

And here's the close up of the pretty flowers covered in 'Diamond Dust'........I just love that extra sparkle:)

I made the flowers using 'Mothers Day Bouquet' cartridge.

The book plate is from 'Fabulous Finds' cartridge.

I thought you might like to see what I started with!

These boxes were a stack of 3, this one is the smallest - if you would like to see the medium size one I covered a few months ago go HERE.  I only have the large one left to cover.

Visit "Scrappy-Go-Lucky" if you would like more details for the flowers.......size of cuts etc.

Thankyou for taking a peek at what I've been creating.
