Today we have a hop full of...you guessed it...explosion boxes. How exciting to see how we all put our individual spin onto this project. We also have an Amazing grand prize sponsored by Scrapbook Steals. They are offering one lucky person a basket full of goodies including products from: Bo Bunny, American Crafts, Prima and My Minds Eye. All awesome candy. Plus Kich and Blues is giving away a set of their digis.
Ok so lets get started. You should be hoping over from Sarah (Pink Cricut) if not you can start at the beginning with Erika.
Onto my project.... From the outside it looks pretty plain. Now it is missing a key hole and some other embellishments but I couldn't find a key hole nor my embellishments. lol.
But when you open it, Bam!! This is what you get. :)
I decided to go with a Pirates Theme for my project (which is why I'm talking about a missing key hole).
I really wanted to make it look like a treasure chest but I couldn't make it happen.
I used Bonnie, Lizzy, Marty and Captain Jack! Arrrgggghhhh, hehehe
They were colored using my trusty old Prismacolor pencils.
Now to add some extra cool factors :) to my box, I created mini gatefold cards for the 4 images. This way, I don't loose a picture/journaling space and I get to have the image. I added some velcro tabs to keep them closed. Sure it adds a tiny bulk but with this project, it's ok.
This is a shot of my base or Layer 3, however you may see it.
Another feature I added to my box was to create an accordion fold card.
That will allow me to have more picture/journal spots.
I'm still deciding on how to decorate that portion but I will add something to it (at least some mats)
Layer 2 (with another accordion card as one of the pockets)
I hope you like it BECAUSE my personal blog candy winner will win a kit created by me. I would love it if you become a follower. I will announce my winner on or after Tuesday.
Now don't forget, in order to qualify for the grand prize (pictured on the left) you must hop around to all the blogs and leave some bloggy love.
Thanks for hopping with us this Holiday weekend. Have a safe Saturday and I will see you back here tomorrow.
