I've altered another chocolate box, by the way, I get these boxes
from my friend Jan, really LOL
I used a page from my wall paper album Got it from a paint place
for free, its all embossed pages gorgeous.
A picture from my Lady Cottington pressed fairy calender 2004.
I used sticker letters in enchantment.
circles from my ink stained time cards and card stock and wrote out
Trying to take the dress, that's what happens
I made the 2 flower on the top,
on the bottom the big one is a silk one, with a little one I made inside,
I made the big bow with some gorgeous ribbon my friend Sheila
gave me, I did a running stitch down one side the pulled it together,

finally got to use one of the stick pins I made..

That little sneaky fairy tried to see the ball dress inside, she didn't
know there was a powerful little fairy guarding it, sadly she was
punished for stealing. They are tough in that mystical land..
There is a ball gown inside the box but will have to show that
tomorrow. I have to get to my desk, it;s calling to me. heheheh..
The winners are further down on the post.


Hello my lovely Ladies, we have our three winners,shesh I sound like
royalty always talking in the third person LOL, I  talk like this
to my lovely and talented, Ladies in my group, I would spend the whole
 day on the comp. looking up site to visit arrange and some time host lots of swaps,post all our
artwork in 4 folders full. There were textile artist, paper artist, mixed media
artist, I have a gorgeous book made of textile pages we did in a swap,
that was my favourite, I'll have to post some pics of it:). I would have questions to answer on
Fridays to get all the Ladies around the world sharing, I did lots of chatting
telling funny stories, answered all their questions, and most importantly encouraged
all of my ladies. I told them all when creating with love in your heart it always
comes out beautifully...
It was one of the best times in my life being in a community of all those
 wonderful talented people was very humbling and and Honor
