Captivating Box Frame

Hello friends

Thank you for all the comments yesterday, really interesting to read your 
favourite dies.  Still time to enter the giveaway....

Today sharing with you a project that has just appeared on the 
Spellbinders Idea Gallery.
I've used the Square Petal Top Box to create the base of the box frame,
I then cut off the flaps and overlaid on the top Captivating Squares and Classic Squares LG.
Inside is further Captivating Squares die cuts and the lovely Bitty Blossoms
(that die cropped up as a definite favourite yesterday).
For further details on this project please visit the Spellbinders website -
all the details are here.

Still having a lovely time at the seaside...
we visited Paignton - love the pastel coloured houses.
 And the blue sea and sky!
Today we are venturing to a rare breeds farm - if we arrive by 10am we get to 
cuddle piglets!  Not so sure they are rare but should prove interesting....
Take care friends and back tomorrow...
oh yes I couldn't miss FDD!

Good morning Christine, Elliott and Mitchell,
I am so glad you are having a lovely time, Paignton is an adorable little town, as is Brixham, you can go across by ferry ( can be a bit choppy though) if you do go look out for Sammy the Seal that 'hangs out' in the harbour and has become very friendly!
Today's crafty gift is just fabulous, you really do " think outside of the box"
Looking forward to FDD,
hugs and enjoy the rest of your break!

Morning Christine,
Pleased to hear the weather is good, we have lovely sunshine as well.
I love Paignton, we used to visit when our girls were small, not been for years, seeing the pictures brings back happy memories.
Love you box frame, very stylish.

Lacelady said...

Morning Christine, I hope you are still enjoying yourself, and not slaving away making cards for us to see. I'm hoping that you made this card in advance - love that you used bitty blossoms, how on earth will Elliott sort us out?

Cuddling piglets sounds right up my street, I once had a caravan holiday on a pig farm and it was great seeing the new families each day.

Layerlass67 said...

Morning Christine, Elliott and Mitchell. So glad you are enjoying your break in Devon. We had many happy holidays in the West Country when the boys were young. A beautiful area. Hope the weather keeps fine for you and you enjoy your visit to the farm today. Hugs. GemmaC xx

Cornish Emma said...

Morning Christine, gorgeous box frame, love the colours and of course the bitty blossom just finishes it. Enjoy your day out to the farm. Hugs Emma x

Alma said...

Hi Christine, Loving the box frame and glad to see your having a fabulous time in Devon - looks gorgeous! Please put me in for a chance to win the lovely leaf dies (i have flower dies but no leaves, so would be fantastic to win), hope i haven't left it too late. Enjoy the rest of your holiday xxx

Maggie said...

Hello. What a pretty frame and the bitty blossoms work so beautifully inside. Have fun on the farm, no bringing home a piglet - Bella wouldn't like it! xxMargaretxx

ElizabethS said...

Hi Christine, thanks for posting all your pics they are wonderful. My Uncle lived in Paington and I remember visiting as a child.
What a lovely frame, so delicate, I love the colours.
Hope you got chance to cuddle the piglets...

Stunning box and photos glad the weather is being kind xx hazel

SusanP, Kent said...

Love this project. Such a clever use for the dies - reminds me that I should do more thinking 'out of the box' so to speak! Lovely pics and I agree that the pastel houses look very attractive. BBC weather man was presenting from Gravesend this morning and explaining why Gravesend sometimes achieves record temperatures. Interesting!

Jacquie said...

Hi Christine,

This is beautiful.

Devon is a lovely place and I love the different coloured houses too, my Daughter live up the road in Cornwall which is equally stunning.

Love & Hugs

Lovely box Christine.
Guess the weather was arranged for you too this week. So pleased you are all enjoying your holiday. Brings back happy memories all the places your visiting. Just love it down there.
Hope you got to cuddle the piglets, we use to have pigs on the farm, I adored the littleones, they are very cuddly (when not wrigling about!!)
Love to all Carolyn.
