Back to Crafting but out of practice


It's been a good couple of weeks since I sat in my craft room and had a play around with my paper stash.

Tonight I sat there for a while and wondered what to work on and I decided that I wanted to have another go at making a shadow box. My first attempt here was designed for a little girl, this time I wanted to make something a little more grown up and that I could put some co-ordinating cards in (haven't made them yet).

I'm sorry the photo is of such poor quality.

I added a sliding drawer in to which I want to place a set of co-ordinating cards. But that is a project for another night.

This months challenge over at Paper Cubed (P3) is to create a shadow box. It can be any sort of shadow box. Hop on over and see some of the other Design Team members amazing creations and also the terrific entries that have already been submitted. You still have until the end of the month to submit an entry and be in the running for the prize.
