Valentine's box

Morning Folks!
Good grief, where has this week gone? it's Thursday already!
Time to share my DT creation for CRAFT this week which is surprise, surprise


We are kindly sponsored again by The Crafty Pad,

who also gave the DT this fab
Teddy digi stamp to use:

I had a bit of time to play so I decided to alter a box which originally had Brie in it!
I think now it would look better with choccys in!!

I had great fun with this, lots of glueing and inking and all finished off with a coat of glittery
Mod Podge to toughen the whole thing up!!
I ended up with very sticky paws, with a slight sparkle to them too!

Now, I think there might be a few challenges out there that this might fit into, so here goes!!
