"Just For You"

Good Morning Everyone! Today is Tuesday and that means a NEW challenge over at Beyond The Burtonesque Dolls and since it is the second challenge of the month... we need to alter something! Yay... As I have told all of you before, I am new to the "Altering World", so I am very excited about this challenge! Hmmm... Guess I should tell you what we are altering, huh? The theme of the challenge is "Pandora's Box"! Yep... you guessed it, we need to alter a box or create a box from scratch! Well I actually altered a cool box that Michael brought home for me! We have a graduation party to go to this summer and I know you are wondering "What in the world was she thinking... altering the box to look like this?" Well the graduate is totally into the Dark Gothic Style, so I thought this would be perfect for her! Her favorite colors are green and orange, so that is the reasoning behind the color combo! Sssshhhh... but we are planning to fill it full of scrapbooking goodies for her, as she LOVES to scrapbook! I think it should make an awesome gift all the way around! You MUST hop on over to the BTBD Challenge Blog and check out all of the other DT creations! You will have until April 29, 2012 to get your creation linked up! Okay, I will stop jabbering and let you take a peek at all of the sides!

Your Pandora's Box is really neat. I love the colors you've used and all of the elements. The stamped and colorized "vixens" on the cover look awesome. I really like your use of the flourishes, too. The orange really pops against the green and black. Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
