Elisabeth Bell World Challenge Blog

Hello everyone......

Today I have my

March project

to share with you.............

Lynda has picked for us to

Alter it/ Easter Decoration or centerpiece

This little project was so much fun!!

I loved making this little centerpiece with an oldie but goodie Elisabeth Bell stamp that is now retired from Sugar Nellie. I have used my copic markers to color this little gem!

Let's see her name is..........Chick-a-dee

Now, just how did I make this cute little box???

Well it is made from a sheet of 12x12 paper.

I was blog hopping to relax and I ran in to this very talented 13 year olds blog. Her name is Heidi-Mari. She has some beautiful artwork and I found that she had created this little box and made a tutorial to share.

You can find Heidi-Mari's blog with the tutorial HERE.

I love this little image for Easter Time!! Here is a side view. As you can see I have not put alot of embellies on it at all. I felt that it just didn't need it. I haven't decided just what I am going to put in just yet. But for now I have paper Easter grass and some glitter eggs. Papers used: Creative Imaginations, Prove Craft, My Little Shoe Box, Melissa Frances and Bazzill cardstock. oh yea.I have added a handle to the cute little basket that is NOT in Heidi-Mari's tutorial.


Challenges to enter:

Southern Girls: add an animal

PILE IT ON: Cutie Patootie

Digi Doodles: Challenge 52 Ribbons and Bows

DUTCH DARE: Celebrations

Guylous Inimitability: I see dots...

SCRAPBOOK SISTERS: anything goes


In the next few photos I have taken the Easter papers and eaggs out of it so that you can see the different little holder spots and the folds that it has.

The top center I have used white tulle and some sheer ribbon roses and a few paper flowers.

The tulle has to be there to keep the little basket together. See the 4 different slots to put whatever you want?? Really a cool little special gift box. THANK YOU FOR STOPPING BY TODAY!!! I would love to hear what you think of this special gift box. If you have a minute to leave me a comment.

REMEMBER you have until April 22 to get your project into the Elisabeth Bell World challenge blog. PLEASE COME AND JOIN US WITH THE FUN!!!

Janiel, this is gorgeous girl! I just added you to the linky tool for PIO. Blogger has been acting out all weekend and apparently removed our linky tool, and I didn't noticed it.

Thanks for playing with us!
