Boxing clever!

Back again, late today...I'm starting a trend!
In my defence I've been fighting my way around the supermarket trying to stock up on food and lots of  chocolate eggs!
I like to get lots of smaller eggs for my kids as the Easter bunny usually pops by and sets up a treasure hunt for them, looking at the weather for this Sunday I think the bunny will be coming indoors. 
As the man reading the weather on TV said last night,
"It's just the weather to sit in and eat lots of chocolate". 
Like I need an excuse! 

On to today's show and tell and I have been playing with the NEW Spellbinder box dies....this next one would be great for Wedding favours...


It is the Spellbinder grand die Square bracket edged box and it also comes with 6 little flower dies too.  I have also used Shapeabilities Parisian motifs, the new Ribbon buckles and of course not forgetting the NEW M-bossabilities Hearts.  I have added a few pearls and a ribbon bow to finish.

 And the view from above....


I've also seen this die used to create an Advent Calender for Christmas using lovely Christmas double sided card.  I do think you would get plenty of use with this one....dinner parties, little treats, Weddings, Anniversary's, birthday boxes...you get my drift!

Tomorrow I am away again to Aberdeen to join "Girls just want to have fun!" 
Another girlie crafty day out, yippee! 

Finally today I thought I'd leave you with this....
my Dad sent it to me this morning....I guess we are all looking for Inner Peace....
here's the secret.....
I thought I'd share with you all....

Inner  Peace: This is so true
         
             
If you can start the day without caffeine,
If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining and
 boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food every
 day and be grateful for it,
If you can understand when your loved
 ones are too busy to give you any time,
If you can take criticism and
 blame without resentment,
If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without alcohol,

If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,      
           
         
...Then  You Are  Probably  .........

                    







         


The family dog!

It all makes sense now. 
I'd just like to end by sending my Dad big hugs.  He isn't great just now and I want to just let him know we're all thinking of him and wishing him a speedy full recovery. xxx.

Christel mentioned this box today so I had to come for a nosey! It's gorgeous. But do you need a big machine to use that die?

Lovely to see you at GJWTHF today and thanks for the tips about these Spellbinders flowers.

Love "Inner Peace" but somehow it doesn't fit my dogs.....yet!
