Good afternoon everyone - hope you are having a good weekend - bit wet for August here though!!  Anyway - this fortnight over at International Art and Soul our theme is 'Boxes and Bags', so I decided to make a hexagonal gift box.

I asked the maestro to take a few pics showing different 'views' for you to check it out.


A3 Centura Pearl card - Crafters Companion
Hexagon Box die - Tattered Lace Dies
Hexagon Nesting Layers die - Tattered Lace Dies
Honeycomb Lattice die - Tattered Lace Dies
Flowers, leaf, tag dies - Unbranded
Penny Black Clear Stamps - 'Happy Snippets' sentiment stamp
Stamen punch -
Pearls - stash

Perhaps I should leave this lying around to see if the maestro can fill it with a nice little gift - sorry that was a daydream I was having!  LOL.  Bless him, he's always treating me so I'm not complaining at all.

We really would love to see your crafty bags or boxes so why not have a go and enter our challenge (here).  While you're at it, we'd love you to become a follower - that would be amazing.

Nip over to the blog to check out my teamies' creations - they are so talented and inspirational.

Big hugs to you all.

Love Suexxx
