Wee One...

Good afternoon, lovely Bloggers!  Well, the weekend was spent packing yet more of our belongings and trying to shift some of the non essential items into storage in preparation for work commencing next week!  I will be so glad when this is all over and have to keep telling myself that it will all be worth it in the long run...I just dread to think of the mess and upheaval that this will all entail and just wish it could be done in a click of the fingers, but that's not to be!  I have now packed away all of my crafty things and will be unable to create for a number of weeks!  I have my DT cards made and posts scheduled just in case I can't use the computer and hope to be able to comment and visit you all on my tablet (as long as the router is switched on!)

Before I packed everything away, I couldn't resist buying one of the digistamps from the latest Wee Stamps release last week and create something to share.  I love altering things and whilst sorting out the pantry, I came across an old sugar box...

...I thought it would make a lovely gift box and decided to use my new Wee One digistamp (this stamp is just adorable!)...
...I covered the box with the blue baby paper from A Year in Cards and mounted the image onto a Martha Stewart punch around the page punched square...
...I coloured this little cutie with my Pro/Flexmarkers and embellished with a white, satin ribbon and bow, a couple of the stunning pins I got from Mandy and some paper and silk flowers...
...I finished by trimming the top of the box with some pretty gathered lace and thought that the finished article would be lovely filled with baby lotions, baby bath, talc, etc.
I must apologise in advance for my absence and hope that I can be back soon with some more crafty creations.  If I get chance, I will try to keep you posted via my tab as to how the work is going and when I will be back online!  Thanks for dropping by to see me and I hope you like my little project!  Crafty hugs,
Lisa x

What a gorgeous box Lisa that image is a cutie and your colouring is perfect. All this upheaval will be worth it but it must feel pretty ghastly at the moment. It's lovely to see you in blog land whenever you can. Keep calm and carry on ;-) hugs Jane xx
