exploding box fun.

…mary, lydia and karen. beautiful papers. wine, cheese, vegetables and dip. and these directions (many thanks to glitter adventure!). equals one very terrific project and lots of fun! the directions were easy to follow. start to finish not nearly as much time as we planned (so more time for food, wine and laughing!) The hardest part was picking the papers and the inks to color the edges. There was also a tense minute when we had to decide about rounding the corners or leaving them square. Then I measured, cut and scored, while Lydia cut out corners and sponged edges and Karen was a whiz with the corner rounder. Group projects are usually more fun and this was no exception – especially when the results are so beautiful!

p.s. thank you Jill for taking our picture and p.p.s. to p&r – note the update to the “upcoming” sidebar – johnny, we’re there!

    Getting real good at the styling part of photography. Loving the new sock book- you’ll have to peruse it sometime. Great fun doing the box, now that the YH has done her Atlanta post, I can tag you both (probably tomorrow!) Yard Sale was fun, made enough to buy half of the shrug!

    You’ve had a busy crafty week. The box is something–looks really nice.

    We’re excited about the Johnny Mathis concert–this is his 51st year of performing. Guess he & Tony Bennett are timeless. Polly

    Great box . . . I love stuff like that. I had a friend that used to do a crop/stamping event once a month. We had a blast. She stopped doing them regularly about two years ago, and totally stopped about 12 months ago. We spent quite a bit of time visiting as we did stamping and cropping.
