Oke so here we go with my take on the Challenge for this week....the theme this week is.....
"SPRUCE IT UP" our host is REBECCA and what you can do is......just check out your workdesk and see what is on there.....and let me tell  you sometimes it is a lot lol....check out the Challenge Blog for more detaills oke....were very curious what you come up with, so come on over to the Challenge Blog and get your crafty hat on ......

This is what I made

I think the people who know me well, know that I just LOVEEEE butterflies and especially the ones from the Wendy Vecchi, I think they are the most beautifull butterflies ever. And you can give them just every color that you want. So this time I chose for the pinkish colors cause they fit so well with the background that I made. The background was made by the Stampset from Wendy.....and because I think Tim Holtz and Wendy Vecchi go so well together.....I chose for a corner from the Tim.

Oke here we have another amazing butterfly from The Wendy and I worked on her with the Distress Inks and Crackle...just like on the Huge Metal Heart that played with lots of Crackle......and underneith some lace...don't you just love that lace......such sweet roses....

So what ya think about this one eh? I spruced up a wooden box, that was standing on my desk.....I wanted to use it for putting in pens and stuff like that......but then it came to mind to use it for the Challenge at the Frilly and Funkie Challenge ....so I did.....

And here is the inside of the box, I worked with the Tissue Tape from Tim Holtz, really love that stuff....and around the corners I played with lace and lots of it.....

Oke this is some beautifull rose that I first embossed and after that I played with the Glossy Accents and Crackle Accents....and I think the result is really good .....

So the rose.....is on the inside of the wooden box....so when you lift of the top you can see the Rose and the Swirl on the inside.....

And this is the back of the Wooden Spruced up Box, I worked with the Background Stamp of Tim Holtz Papillon Stampset and I worked with a Paint Dabber for the dots......I really like it ....what am I saying....I love it.....

So here is my project all finished....just the front of it though.....underneith the heart I placed the sentiment from Tim saying ALTERED.....so there ya have it guys......I am really happy about my project....I hope you will like it too..and if you want to have fun too and want to SPRUCE something up...then you should come over to the Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog and do join into the fun and while your there check out my amazing teamies amazing creations they made for your inspiration isn't that just GREAT.....but above all.....Dooooo have FUN......
