Late Mother's Day Exploding Box

Good Afternoon everyone, 

Well this is my latest make. 
This was a commission for my friend Sarah for her mum for Mother's day but tragically her uncle died and they had to fly to Jamaica for the funeral a couple of days before Mother's day.
So this has only just been handed over.

Sarah asked for a pink exploding box and this is what i created for her.

This is a 4"x4" base box.
 I have used artwork from the Birthstone Fairies Cd from Jem's Designs.
Everything else came out of my stash.

I have just received some news from Stamping with the Dragon.

so we are now looking for some new talented ladies or gents to join our small group.

Pop on over HERE to find out more.

Blog Hop for Scrapper's Delight


I received some exciting news by email the other week but couldn't tell you all, but now i can.

I have been accepted as part of the design team for Scrapper's Delights. 
Thanks Janice for welcoming me as one of your newest members.

So we have decided to do a blog hop so you can all meet the newest members of the team, we are showcasing our first DT projects.

So let me introduce myself a wee bit.
I'm Jo and I'm a married to my lovely husband Gary who is my rock. I'm a stay st home mummy of my gorgeous wee boy Hayden ( 20 months ) who keeps me on my toes. I have recently became self employed by turning my hobby into a small business.

-What do you consider your style is? - I don't really have a style, i love to try new things and i suppose every piece i create is different because i base the project on who it is for.
-What is your favourite tool or technique to use? - My favourite tool at the moment has to be my Cameo as I have only recently got it and still learning all the different things I can do on it.
-What is your favourite embellishment?- Flowers and gems have to be my favourite embellishments at the moment, can't seem to have enough in my stash.

So here are my project's, the first is the project i used for my application to join.

I was sent Summer Breeze Digi.
I used my promarkers to colour the digi stamp.
 I used papers out of my stash to cover a hinged box.
 I then added flowers, butterflies and buttons from my stash.

My second project i used CU easter egg bunny 1

I used Spectrum Noirs to colour the stamp, didn't take a note of the colours sorry.
 I used paper out of Kate Knight's aquamarine-floral prints and added a sentiment topper and butterflies out of my stash.

While you jump from blog to blog remember to pick up the coupon codes from each of us, they look like this 

Also we have some prizes to give away!
Make sure you leave a comment on each blog stop along the way,
because if your comment is chosen you have
the chance to win a Scrapper's Delights Image!
The hop will continue through Saturday the 9th
and some time on Sunday we will announce the winners!
