So ...

to my own little project ...
... here only by the skin of it's crafty teeth due to an unexpected trip to Sussex over the Christmas period. 

 I have made for my (about to be decorated) kitchen a handy little box to collect those pesky receipts I always lose and and "important" bits of paper !! I will make little folders to go inside in due course and time !!

I cut the recipe box from Tags Bags Boxes and More 2 at its largest possible size in 2 pieces on a 12x24  mat and stuck the pieces together with Cosmic Shimmer Glue. 
OMG !! 
How WOW is that glue ??
My papers came free with the Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine a couple of months ago inside a 2013 Calendar by Pinkpaislee using the gorgeous London Market, which I will be using throughout the year . I also used some Papermania Capsule Collection. 
The ribbons, lace, bobbles, pearls and butterfly all came from my craft stash and as I purchased some Silver Leaf Paint on my way home yesterday  I just had to have a little play !!
 I confess my flowers are Spellbinder dies (My second crafty love lol)
Last ...
...  but by no means least ...
 I have a little give away for someone  who leaves me a comment on my blog during the crawl. 
If you are not already a follower, please join, I'd love you to help me get to my first 100 
woo woo !! 
Happy to post to where ever in the world you may be !! 
 Please leave a way of contacting you (blog etc) so I can send them out looking all wrapped up and pretty lol and guess what ??
The packet covers are all made with the Artiste Cart, I love them so much lol !!

I will announce my winner the same day as I post the Cricut Crawl's winner over at FCCB  on Wednesday 9th January, using
