Quick birthday prezzie.... and an ATC first.....

Hello beautiful crafters...... Hope you've had an awesome weekend so far?!?

Here in South Africa, Winter is definitely on it's way so it's a bit chilly here this morning in Johannesburg.

I had to make a birthday prezzie for someone and thought i would make a bon-bon box as it's quick and easy with little hassle and easy on the pocket.

Decided to make it in lime green and cerise pink with white accents and white tissue paper. The box is filled with Feror Rocher chocolates.

I must say, it definitely came out far better than i had thought it would.

Other than that i've been pottering with the idea of ATC's and have joined two swaps on a local forum called

My first attempt at an ATC was made with paper that i have crumpled up and then distressed with Tim Holtz "Old Paper" ink. Layered with a piece of torn light green paper. Then added a flower and butterfly and rhinestones and added glitter glue to some of the "cracks" of the "old paper".

Let me end off by saying that today i'm going to work some more on my B&W Paperbag mini album and maybe start another album i've been planning.

Until next time.  Keep warm and keep crafting.
