Odd Box

Hey Fluffers :)

Well you know the drill on a Monday by now! If you're looking for Cupcake it's downstairs, but before you head off...


Whenever I colour up an image, I can be absolutely sure if I don’t stamp or print out two, I’ll mess it up, or get half way through and decide that Kaylee (or whoever I’m colouring) would look better with a different colour… hair, skirt, or outfit combo!


It’s also a dead cert, if I print two images off to start, I’ll only need or use one. And so, I find myself with a little stack of images, ready to use another time. You of course know, I’m a bit of a tidy freak, so, I decided to make a little (Odd) box to keep them in, using one of my favourite Some Odd Girl images, Lazy Day Kaylee.


I had a lot of fun with this box. Not only did I get messy with paint, then messy with sandpaper when I duffed the box and papers up to look distressed, I got to colour up my fav Kaylee…


Stuff Wot I Used...

Brilliant box. You just need a sticky note put of the fridge telling you where you have hidden the box though . Hugs muver
