Altered Book Box-DT "Ooh La La Vintage Treasures".

We had our fun "Girl's Night" crop over on my Ustream Channel last Saturday! I was given this box from one of my design team leaders "Doreen". I had no clue how I was going to alter this box. I just started white washing some butter cream paint onto the front and then the creative juices started flowing and this is what I ended up with at the end of the night!

I used many laces from "Ooh La La Vintage Treasures" $5.00 grab bag on the front cover of this box!

This very pretty applique is also available in their store as well!

The papers I used to cover the front of this book are from Graphic45 - "Once Upon A Springtime" In this photo you can see I also used a Tim Holtz button on the side for a knob.

The large flowers at the bottom of the box are handmade by me! You can find these and many more roses I create in my store at the top of this blog!

I would like to thank all the ladies who came over to my Ustream show on Saturday and hung out with me while I created this lovely box! We also have so much fun and we are always meeting new friends too!

I will be altering the inside of this box this coming Saturday @ 9pm EST so hope to see you there!

I hope everyone is having a creative week!
