Pixie Dust Paperie April Challenge



HAPPY EASTER!!



I hope you are having a wonderful weekend ... 

The new challenge at Pixie Dust Paperie has begun ... and this month Kirsty has picked a fabulous  challenge -   
Create a project related to a city  (e.g. London, Rome, Paris,  New york ... Any city in the world!)
The challenge title is "Fly Away With Me!!"


Everyday this week you will be able to see the projects from our design team ...

For me I chose London ... the place I spent a lot of my childhood ... a place full of happy memories for me ..... and what do you think of when you think of travel? A suitcase or a trunk maybe? 
Here's my 'well travelled' and 'shabby' little trunk...


I used papers from PaperMania's  Portobello Road and some travel stamps from Crafty Individuals and Elin's Huis


I started by making to boxes exactly the same size from card stock - covered them inside and out with paper and added an extra piece at the back to hinge them together (using brads) ...


... used a little more CS with a key hole for the front and some velcro to fasten ... The corners are made from circles cut in  pewter mirri board (score the circle into 4 and remove 1/4 of the circle to get the fold) ... All it needed then was a handle made again from card stock
Take a peek inside


Some English Afternoon Tea and a shabby heart


I scanned into my computer some of the Portobello Road paper and printed it on to fabric to make the heart


Just a few embellishments ... red white and blue and a little crown too ... As our Queen celebrates her Diamond Jubilee this year


... and there we have it ... my little London gift set!

Well I'm off to find some chocolate ... seeing as how it's Easter (like I need an excuse..Lol!)
I do hope you will be inspired to play along at Pixie  this month ... and I MUST mention that there are some FANTASTIC offers on at the moment ... hop over to the blog to see all the details ... I'd really hate for you to miss out!

Have a wonderful day ... Thanks for stopping by
