Boxed In.......

Hello Again!!

Well Mr Mojo has most definately left the building & me staring at a lot of crafting goodies needing to be 'played' with!! You know how horrible it is when you get all your inks etc out & nothing happens.......Hello!!  I've been that way for a few months now, but still have a weekly class to plan for, which I can do but just can't seem to play & enjoy crafting for me.  On Tuesday this week I went to Edinburgh for the day to visit my lovely friend Astrid, and just exploring all of Astrids gorgeous craft room & goodies got me playing again!!!
We had a fab day and I made the beginnings of a little box, which I finished when I got home!! 

The papers I used were 7 Gypsies Treasured Moments (from Astrid's stash) and some distress inks around the edges to tone down the paper a wee bit.

Inside of the box, equally distressed!!!  And the little tag on top was cut from the new spellbinders Framed Tags One set, cut, embossed & inked with victorian velvet distress inks.

Thanks Astrid, Anni & Yvonne for a fabulous day out & a big dose of inspiration, giving Mr Mojo a nudge back to life.....ha ha.   Thanks for stopping by & as always I appreciate any comments, good or bad (well within reason!)
Happy Crafting

Ann xx
