Live & Love Crafts challenge #1

Hi, I'm back again with a premiere this time. The lovely Sandra has just opened her own online crafting store Live & Love Craft with all the wonderful vintage and shabby chic crafting supply you can imagine! I was so happy when she asked me to join the DT! The store also has a challenge and inspiration blog. Every 1st of the month there will be a new challenge for you to join. The talented ladies of the design team will have lots of inspiration for you to get you started. The very first challenge in honor of the season is
I had lots of fun with the gorgeous design papers and made a gift box for my daughters kindergarten, she had her last day this Friday. We filled it with homemade bookmarks for each of the wonderful women there. It was a big success! And we all had tears in our eyes when we said goodbye for the last time. Now shes starting school in the fall. I can't believe she's such a big girl now! 

Well enough allready, here's my project:

I used papers from the Lovely Maja Designs Life by the sea collection.

I made a box from cardstock to get the size I wanted. 
I put some ribbon on the sides, and attached dolphin and sea-star charms. 

Here's my  Tilda Unanchor. The background stamp is the Pier background also from Magnolia. I masked the two together.
I've been practicing with distres ink for a while now, and finally feel like I'm getting the hang of it!
I use Rangers Tim Holtz distress ink pads.
The resin peaces (corners) are Melissa Frances Garnihs Applique, the lace around the image is Camel lace from Riddersholm.

 I loved this compass charm the minute I saw it! I used some rope-like ribbon, cheesecloth and pearl string

 I used Mulberry flowers, and the big one is a Gardenia flower, the others are roses. I painted some Tim Holtz Cracle Paint on the flowers, distressed it with vintage photo and finally put some liquid pearls on the leaf edges.
I decorated the inside with Maja Design's Life by the Sea papers.  I used a Martha Stewart punch for the edges, and I wrote a little note. 

A little present for each of the lovely ladies. The tag is Magnolia doohicke's Romantic Tag.

Hope you like it!

Hi Elizabeth,
Small girls will be great and there also belongs saying goodbye to. My granddaughter, who is living in my house with her father, will be 5 years in september. I also made for her teachers two gift hearts to say thanks for the nice schoolyear.
Your nauticbox is great again, like always. I'm going to definitely get involved with the challenge, because nautic is my favourite subject.Dear greeting from me, and have a nice sunday.
