WOYWW Secret Sister Box

My lovely friend Laurel ran a secret sister box recently and I decided to join in. Their were set parameters for the box size and a guideline of what to fill the box with. My sister should have received her box so I think I am safe to share it here. My box is filled with techniques from the fabulous Andy Skinner workshop I am on. First picture is the the base and the rest are finished. The last 2 pictures are a tag I made, again with Andy Skinner techniques and a tag the lovely Dyan Reaveley made for my secret sister.

Hi Claire. You have been busy. Your tags are great. Love the colours of the second one especially. If you can do all this you can definitely scrapbook. Why not start with a page Art Journal style? Thanks for popping in at my desk. See you again next WOYWW Helen ♯35

I'm still making my way 'round ...what a terrific idea of the box! I have to be honest, I have a cold and watery eyes and I've been around to lots of blogs this morning and when your post first opened, I thought it was a coffin and it startled me! LOL Geez, time for a coffee break! Now that I've focused, I'm amazed by it all!
