Hi all I have scheduled this post so I do hope that Blogger is behaving and does it's job.  I have not been too well these last few days hence the scheduled post.
Today our new challenge starts at Bearlymine and the theme is
Our sponsors are as follows:
Here is my DT project
I found an old cardboard box which I thought would be perfect for storing my Copics. I have used papers from the sets Floral Dreams and Fairy Dreams.  I have used Tilda coloured with Copics, I distressed around the edge of the die cut, I found some cream and gold thingy (can't think what you call it) that I have had for a few years, I fixed it around the edges using my hot glue gun.  I used some cream card which I punched with a MS border punch, I used some pink organza ribbon tied in bows, added some large pink and cream roses to the corners then found some little dolls that I had forgotten that I had, I fixed them by the sides of each Tilda image.
This is now full of my Copics and on my craft desk it is so easy to see the colours and I love it.

The picture below shows the box before I altered it. 
I would like to link this up with some challenges and hope fully by Tuesday I will feel a little better to do so.
If you would like to see some wonderful creations then please go visit the other DT their work is amazing.
Hugs to all.
