Off to Australia.....

My daughter flew to Australia for a business trip on Friday!! I know you are all feeling very sorry for her having to go to Australia on business, LOL. Anyway I wanted to send her off with a little piece of me since I couldn't go with her in person. I saw this wonderful altered box in one of my Paper Craft magazines that I though would be perfect.  I crafted her a necklace, to wear on her venture, to put inside.










Supplies used: box - recycled Coldwater Creek jewelry box; patterned papers from Tim Holtz Crowded Attic paper pad; plate from Tim Holtz Ornate Plates; ink - brown by ColorBox; fonts - CAC Champagne, Bickham Script Pro, AppleGothic; heart punches - Fiskars, Martha Stewart; rhinestone - Kaiser Craft; trim - my stash; sewing machine; chain - Bead Landing from Michaels; Memory Frame by Inkssentials for Ranger; jewelry findings- Michaels; crystals - my stash; dictionary page; heart rhinestone - Martha Stewart; Glossy Accents.
