Well, I've been playing with digital templates again and I found some gorgeous box templates at The Digichick. This is one I got my hands on the other day:
It is sooo easy to use and I combined it with some rose flowers that I have used before:
I used papers and journal tags from this digital kit:
And this is what I ended up with:
The large flower on the box was made using the Blossom Punch from Stampin' Up. Full details of how I made these will be posted on the Hybrid Chick blog shortly so why not go take a look and let me know what you think?
It really was too nice to be working a week or so ago! I just think we get so few really lovely days here in the UK, we need to make the most of them and sitting here doing a cash flow forecast is really not in my top ten list of favourite things to do on a sunny day!
I'd spent the morning at a client's premises taking photographs as he'd asked me to take some photos of his new camping and caravanning site so he can put them on his website. This probably counts as my first real photographic assignment (and I got paid too!!!!)! I take photos for pleasure, and occasionally manage to come out with a couple of good pictures, and having seen one I took of the bridge at Ironbridge, my client seemed to think I knew what I was doing.....do you think it would be wrong of me to have kept quiet about the fact that I don't know how to work all the buttons on my camera yet?
Here's the caravan and camping site - looks so peaceful, doesn't it? All you can hear are the birds singing and ok, yes, the traffic from the nearby main road, but the peace and the views more than make up for the noise of the traffic.

And there are these tucked away in a hedge:
Just pour me a Pimm's and leave me here:
Anyhow, it was really lovely that morning, being out in the sunshine and listening to the birds sing. Shame I had to come back indoors to do my real job, eh?
But, despite all the work, I have had chance to get crafty, and was able to get my hands on this new release from Girl Boy Girl Designs:
