Altered Box ..... I am back blogging

 Hi Everyone

I am now back blogging and face booking again, we had a fantastic time away with family and friends and my nieces wedding was superb, so loved it and took lots of pics more of those later.

Christmas was lovely, except for the cold weather so I just had to buy more clothes and of course craft shopping as if I don't have enough stash but a girls got to do what a girls got to do lol. Needless to say I was overweight again on the luggage side and had to purchase another suitcase and allowance, by this time Brian was having a hissy fit but it only lasted a minute as life to short to worry about luggage.

 I came from the UK with a very nasty cold agggg and then sinus that gave me stinkers of all headaches that lasted 2 weeks, Brian was unwell at the same time so I was feeling a bit down and sorry for myself but I am up and running now but sorry to say Brian is not hundred percent but we are working on that.

I have not been crafting much at all but did manage to create this, took longer than I thought as I had to keep
having a sleep as I was very tired with the cold meds.

I made it for my niece who got married and I am now working on a book to go with it.

 The box is painted with white crackle paint, ceramic corners, painted tiles, Tim Hotlz hearts inked with Victorian Velvet., papers are My Memories, pearls,dimanties and lace from the souk, flowers, silver corner, and butterfly from Wild Orchid, .vintage buttons from my stash.

                                 Bottom Layer

                       My lovely niece.

 I also add some silver leafs mother of pearl and swarovski crystle from my jewel drawer and made a dangly to go in the middle near the picture.

I have had some spam robots on my blog this week 50 spam messages a day so now I have put comment moderator on and you have to have a google account to leave a message, that is the only way I have found that they cannot get through, I am still trying to find another way to stop them without changing my blog account, when I do I will let you all know.
