Happy Birthday Lisa!

So yday was Lisa Sparkle’s bday and I couldn’t leave it any longer to post the pic’s of wot I made her cos I’m well proud! Without wanting to give too much away it was a special bday so I had to put some effort in to and I decided quite a while ago to make an exploding box:

The larger stickers where 29p from Home Bargains (gotta love that shop!) and I made the smaller letters myself with clear self adhesive paper from Crafty Computer Paper.

Remove the lid and ta da!

All the Alice In Wonderland characters are by The Octopode Factory – I was looking for an excuse to buy them and lo and behold I found one, so thanks Lise!.

I stuck with my original sentiment of “Its not what’s on the outside, its what’s on the inside that counts” which I decided was fitting for  Alice’s boredom of the outside world versus the craziness down the rabbit hole.
I created the chequerboard with some offcut red rubber in black n then I went a filled a few in with Versamark n various embossing powders.
Hope u like it n HAPPY BIRTHDAY CUS!
