morning all
wow i can believe how fast the time is flying,
its new challenge day over on 
 i got this  atc box from That Craft place its actualy an atc box, but as i dont really collect them
 i saw the box and instantly thought it perfect to sit on my desk and put all my little bits and bobs in that im using for the whichever project im working on.

i have to say its the perfect size and i love it!
i put it together glueing it with the cosmic shimmer glue, once dry, i painted the inside with 
some shimmery red paint, also painted the letter, (which danny kindly cut an extra k and y for me)
then i used some prima papers to cover the box.

once the letters had dried i stuck them on with the cosmic shimmer glue 

and finished 
it off with a couple of cut out leaves and some of the red and black Petal Lu 
blooms from the Halloween collection ,  

which luck would have it are on a special at the moment
just look at those lush colours!
 so go grab some for your Halloween makes.

The winner will receive
 30% discount from the Petal Lu store,
