Decorated Tissue Box!

Hullo, Hullo,
Well here I am as promised with the gift I made the lovely Elaine- an altered tissue box and I don't quite understand why I felt the need to paint it first as it was already Kraft in colour!!!
What a dingbat I am, I absolutely love Kraft, well I guess you have gathered that by now!
Anyhow as you can see I painted it first and then proceeded to mat and layer in Kraft!!
I have used Cuttlebug corner dies on the top

The papers are SU and the tag is Magnolia with Martha Stewart butterflies and grass punch
Can you guess where the sentiment is from ...............
One of my fave images, so so cute - any ideas where from?
Same as before but different message, from?
Oooh! another gorgeous image and yes you've guessed it from ELZYBELLS!!!
After I made this I did think ooh I quite fancy one of these myself so I think I will have to invest and make another.
It does sparkle too with lots of added Stickles and I was so pleased Elaine loved it as much as me!
I will be entering my tissue box, sorry Elaines tissue box into
Lothian Crafts - pastel colours
CES Challenges - cute and cuddly
sir Stampalot - all creatures great and small
Bye for now, thanks for visiting all your comments make my day special!!
