Technique Lover's Box!

Hello after a few days' absence! I'm sorry I don't get to post as often as I'd like! I make plans to create and before I know it the day is gone and projects aren't done! This box is for TLC208 on SCS! Wow, was this fun! I printed the template that Lynn provided right onto my Baja breeze card stock. Then I stamped it with PTI's polka dots. Love that set!
After that I decided on some light and airy flowers from the SU set Simply Said. It was a breeze to color! Without masking (too lazy!) I sponged Barely Banana around my flowers. It needed something so I got my stencil brush and swirled on some Adirondack Cranberry ink (first swirled on scrap paper to lighten)
The medallion is on dimensionals. The MS lace edge is punched from yellow dp that was at the back of Basic Grey's 6x6 pad, Two Scoops. I also swirled a little Cranberry on that. I bought this moss yesterday at Joann's for this box-got a huge package for under $3.00! More Spring boxes to come!
I wanted 3 of these eggs in my box, but my cats have struck! I love birdhouses and have them around the house along with some nests. I bought a package of about 20 of these wonderful eggs last year (no idea where!). At one time many of them were in a pottery bowl (looking cute!). There was only one! My cats have had them out playing with them and they are GONE! I have been down on the floor looking everywhere!
Wanting to post I gave up, added more moss and this one robin's egg! I'm hoping Dave picked up the eggs and put them somewhere when we were cleaning for my Book club to meet at my house on Monday.
Thanks for checking out my box! I promise more this week!
Have a wonderful Wednesday!

What a cute box. It is such a simple template.I never made any kind of box but I tried this one with printer paper the other day. I already decided I will make it as little gifts for the granddaughter and co-workers. Thanks for showing us your beautiful sample. Can't wait for more.

What a lovely box! Perfect for that "one egg"! Funny story...darn those pets! But what would we do without them?

P.S. Your word verification had the word "cat" in it! Do you think they fixed it that way somehow? LOL!
