Hi Happy 1st of December I am very proud today as I was asked by Sandra from 
Live and Love Crafts
to be a guest designer for the month of December how wonderful is that
for this challenge the theme is

Anything but a Card

I made a memory box I love how it turned out 
I used and old glossy box (i have loads of them lol)
I painted the box with white Acrylic gesso then added tea dye TH ink on the edges of the box and lid, I then added TH crackle paint which also spread the ink about once I had dried it I added some sealer to made the finish stronger.
I used a gorg image from Marianne D Designs cuttables
I distressed the papers, added some box fold satin ribbon around the image and then some string beads I put the picture on top of a vintage cotton doily.
Down the left side of the box lid I have added some vintage lace and then some trim with a organza bow with a rhinestone spacer and cream bead from the Ribbon girl.
I then add a key which I shabbied up with some white acrylic paint and a little rub of inka gold.
The plaster key plate was also painted and rubbed with a smidg of inka gold.
the flowers are a mixture of wild orchid crafts and petaloo flowers.
the dragon fly I made myself I also made the pin as well.
to finish off I added a pearl flower from live and love crafts
and metals leaves and lacy metal flower

I added some lace and gold trim with some flat back pearls to the lid of the box

and for the bottom I added more gold trim and metal corners with some wild orchid crafts flowers then a small metal key hole
I also decorated the inside of the box and used lace trim to finish off and then some gold trim to the top edge of the box and just for a bit of vintage finish I added a brass key on a cream tassel 
so there we go I hope you like my creation.
