Butterfly Box - CD Sunday

Afternoon my lovely friends.  I am not sure if I have shared this bit of information with you all, but when I had a poorly laptop, I made a decision to stand down from some off my DT's...One reason, was to make more time for my ever growing family, and also, as most of my DT's were Digi based, I wanted to free up time to try some new kinds of crafting.

To this end, I finally took the wrapper off of one of my Debbie Moore - Shabby Chic (butterflies and flowers), which I am thoroughly ashamed to say, has never seen the light of day, since the day I bought it at the NEC, last November.

Side View of Box - with my favourite - Gingham Ribbon

I made this to enter CD Sunday - Butterfly Challenge, and hope that you like it, cannot believe how easy this was to put together, with a bit of time to trawl through the CD and printing...

I would also like to enter this project into:-

Challenges 4 Everybody - CH#31 - Anything Goes
Crafting When We Can - CH#55 - Make it Sparkle
Brown Sugar - CH#63 - Anything Goes
Creative Corner Challenge - Anything BUT a Card
Crafty Ribbons - CH#65 - Butterflies (2nd entry)

Have a lovely day, and I will be back with Delicious Doodles - Day 15 of 31 days of Halloween, bright and early and hugs and thanks for the

This is fabulous Avril. I used to be an avid CD crafter but don't use them anymore. It is good to have a change to keep the creative juices flowing.

Hello, Avril - This is wonderful. I've never made a box LOL - but I'm sure I have a pattern somewhere so this is going on my list of things to do.

So happy you are getting a chance to do some fun things. I am the same way - that's why I only want to be on one DT - I don't mind the DT work but I love doing other stuff too. Keeps things fresh.

Have a good day, my friend.
