wishing you all a Happy Easter! And an unusual one it might be for you too. For my husband and I, it's rather an exciting one. Every Easter long weekend, our son goes interstate for his National Orienteering Events and our daughter for the last few years has gone away with her friend's family to their holiday house by the sea and gone crabbing. (I call them her 'other family'...lol).
So this weekend, we have our kids all to ourselves. And we are going to celebrate in style!
Saying that, I do miss having my parents up for the family celebration. Love you M & D. x
So, what are we planning for our Sunday dinner?
Miss 18 year old has a craving for Yorkshire Pudding...which I think is hilarious. So I said well we will need to have roast beef then. I have a fabulous recipe from Jamie Oliver HERE. It works every time and doesn't need very much flour....I know...sensitive topic.
Ok, enough of that, lets see what I have to show you today...
I have had a bit of time this week to make the beautiful box designed by Nicole Wilson who is a member of The Dimensionals Team. This box is called Easter Flower Peekaboo Box and it's big enough to hold a whole lot of chocolate goodies!
Nicole's tutorial shows you how to make this box from start to finish and includes all the products you will need.
I have never been successful with the paper rosettes, but this time they worked out perfectly! (thanks Nicole).
You will notice from Nicole's original design that I have changed the colour of the cardstock, added some ribbon trim around the box base and also used different 12x12" cardstock. I was out of Whisper White 12x12" sheets but had plenty of this retired paper. I sponged the paper with Rococo Rose Classic Stampin’ Pad before assembling it.
I used Rococo Rose Cardstock and a piece of the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper (my last piece of it!)....sniff.
The leaves were cut from Soft Sea Foam A4 Cardstock.
I loved making this box, and I couldn't believe how much I could fit into it!
This box has been gifted to a beautiful friend to help her celebrate Easter with her wonderful hubby and devoted fur baby. Enjoy my friend. x
Well, that's all for now...time to start planning the Easter egg hunt...( and to tie up the chocolate munching dog Charlie Girl!)
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and even though you may not have your loved ones all with you, I'm sure they are only a phone call or skype away? Just think of all the catch up dinners and celebrations we will have once this is all over!
Thank you for visiting me, have a special day, stay sound, sane & safe and have a wonderful Easter. x
