Exploding box......

If you read my last post about my living room looking like a warzone,oh my giddy aunt if you could only see my living room now it is no longer a warzone but a nuclear bomb site!!!!!I kid you not.I did manage to tidy it all up yesterday but found out at work that a member of staff was turning""50"today!!!!I really wanted to do a little something for them so to now match my living room i made this little exploding box{LOL,thought it was rather apt!!} last night at 11pm,took a while and had to be up for 5am this morning to head back into work,thankfully you can`t see me at the moment...baggy eyes,dark circles and pasty faced....LOL....but hopefully Maureen will like it.
I used the We R Memory Keepers Vintage Brass papers and ribbon,brads,seed beads and a little glitz,thanks for looking hope you like.
Well the mess awaits me again,on a mission to clear up the explosion in my living room then might try and have 40 winks before heading back out to work later.
Hugs n stuff
Ohhh just noticed that over on The Arty Girlz challenge blog that the theme is "Smile"and as i used the word "smile"on the lid {as hoping it will bring a smile to Maureens face}thought i would enter it and hopefully fits the criteria.

Thanks for leaving such a lovely comment on my blog. The papers are gorgeous, what a great gift, I'm sure she'll love it!!
I'm working on another make and my beads are everywhere at the moment - every so often I'll hear one roll onto our wooden floor! I've lost count how many times I've been on my hands and knees searching for them!
