Scrapbooking Retreat

Last weekend I went to a scrapbooking retreat with my MIL and i had such a wonderful time.  It is so nice to get away and do some crafting and socialize. :)  I love my family, but I like a little me time. :)  I wanted to try an explosion box while i was there and decided it would be perfect for a mother's day/Birthday gift for my mom.  Her birthday is Apr 20 and I won't see her til my little's girl's 1st birthday on May 1st, so i thought i could do something that was good for both.  Here is my the box i made.

unfortunately i didn't have any SU dsp with me, so i used what i had, but the cardstock is old olive, pacific point and real red.  The ribbon is all SU, and most of the embellishments are as well.  I really like how it turned out.

March Card Class

Here are the cards and project we made in March :)  All of these cards and the box were cases with slight alterations...

 The shamrock was coated in crystal effects to prevent the glitter from falling off and to give it a bit of a different look :)
 This card was made using the bleach effect.
I cased this card from the occasions mini with slightly different colors.
 This box holds A2 cards and was cased from splitcoaststampers.  Sorry i don't know who made it.
I hope you enjoy looking and please come back again :)
