SBS Monster Mash/BOX O' WISHES

This is my entry into the SBS Monster Mash I chose to step outside the box ( or work with one ) and do an altered project. I used one of the digis that I won ( yay) and made a SHAKER TOP .
I used a small lunchbox  with a lucite window  and made the top into a shaker card (check out the video below) and the box itself becomes a FAIRY WISH BOX. (OR FAIRY WITCH BOX)
You should have arrived here from Gina if you didn't ,go back and check her blog out.

Just a little bit of what I enjoy doing , hope you enjoy looking.

After doing a little bit of alot of different crafts I have gone back to what I have always loved. I enjoy coloring , drawing and designing pictures. And thanks to the love and (prodding) of my DH, I am where I belong and am more happy .
