Lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia Midway Reminder Challenge #151-"Use Trim"

Happy Sunday dear friends!

And how is everyone enjoying their weekend?'s getting pretty cold here...I really hate to think that winter is truly just around the corner...UGH!!  Seems like the perfect time to hunker down in the craft room...just the way to cure the "almost winter"!

Okay...onto to today's marks the midway of our current challenge at Lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia where our theme is "Use Trim" how easy is that I ask...just get out your lace or ribbon or pearl strands...the sky's the limit!!  We are kindly sponsored this challenge by the Rubber Buggy!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
I just received the Graphic 45 "Book Boxes" that I ordered so I was pretty excited to jump right in and try them out!!...
I "pounced" on Gesso to make a nice white snow like affect...
DP is Maja Design from the "A Gift For You" collection...
next I added some gathered lace that I decorated with tiny silver flowers and a white pearl strand...
 this darling image is "Poinsettia Tilda" from the Aspen Holiday 2016 collection...
coloured with my copics...
dusted with Chunky White Frantage...
matted on cheesecloth...
inside is a perfect place to store memories/treasures...
DP is also from Maja Design "A Gift For You"...
 I added an envelope that is the perfect size for a gift card...
 the bow is doubled layered using two chiffon ribbons...
I added this beautiful diamanté safety pin with a diamanté snowflake attached...
then finished off with some "Merry Christmas" ribbon and a gray pearl...

And that is my first "Book Box" completed!!  SO many ideas running through my head for the other 3 that I have...BUT for's time to check out the beautiful creations that my talented team mates have to show you...then come on over and join us at Lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia!
