Craft My Life.

I am pleased to announce that I have been asked to join the Design Team (B) for the Bi-monthly Craft challenge Craft My Life. The sponsors for the current challenge are:

The theme is anything goes..... but  no cards and the  challenge still has 1 month to run so there is plenty of time to enter and we would be delighted to see you over there. Come join in the fun.
The DT's were given some lovely images by Bugaboo to play with and I chose this delightful
Rose and Butterfly digi to make my project with. I have chosen to make a 4 drawer box
and decorated the top using the image and then made some tiny roses to match. There is also an acetate sheet on top to protect it and just the very time I wanted the photo to show a reflection I managed to take a completely flat image not once but twice!!! Isn't it always the way!!

As there are rather a lot of photos showing how I made it and this post is already quite long I will do a tutorial on the making of the box separately.
Entering  into the following challenges:
Artistic Inspirations #57: Buttons or anything goes.
Lexi's Creations #98: Anything but a card.
Make it Monday #156: Any paper crafts.
Paper Crafting Journey: Anything goes.
Hiding in my Craft Room #113: Free Style
Pixie's Crafty Workshop #88: Use up your snippets.
Challenges 4 Everybody #28: Anything goes.
Digi's Galore: Anything goes. Must use a digi no real stamps allowed.
