Happily Ever After Blog Hop - Day 2!

Welcome back for Day 2 of the Happily Ever After Blog Hop!
We hope you got to hop yesterday but if you missed our post for Day 1 click here! This hop is going on from May 1 - May 4 with different projects from all the talented crafters each day!!! If you stumbled on here and would like to start at the beginning with Lisa go here! Lisa has gotten a LOT of sponsors for this hop and you don't want to miss your chance at some awesome candy!!! Make sure you comment on each blog and follow the sponsors blogs to get entered! Each day you comment you earn an extra chance!

I hope you guys all saw Mama Lovebug's gorgeous wedding day brooch! Wasn't that amazing? Fantastic job, Mama! Lovebug Creations sells these brooches so if you are interested in purchasing any or would like a custom one made please send us an email to lovebugcreations3 at gmail dot com!

For my first project I did something I've never done before. I was given a Tim Holtz Configuration Box from my sister. I have to say I was a little intimidated at first but soon fell in love! There are so many different things you can do with these! Paint it, ink it, paper it...configure it a gazillion (is that a word?) ways. If you haven't tried these you really should! On to the picture and then I'll explain a little about what I've done!

I decided for this configuration to paint all of the boxes with a black acrylic paint and covered it all with DCWV Black Currant Stack! I couldn't get a great picture but the first row going down has a heart I stamped attached to a Stampin' Up! beveled windowpane! Next box down has some bling and a charm that says "Remember This". Next box has a hanging  trinket key from Stampin' Up!  The big spot with the "you and me" chipboard piece is actually 2 smaller boxes flipped upside down! Next box down has some bridal stickers in it and beside it is a box with 2 rosesetts from SU! Also I stamped "Always" on a piece of paper and rolled it up in an empty embossing powder container I had! Back to the top - I loved the flower on the paper and didn't want to cover it so I put a raised butterfly in there! Final box has a Prima flower in it! The "LOVE" going down the box are DCWV chipboard letters! The top has an angled chipboard piece with the name of the blog hop and on the side is another bridal sticker!!
I hope you enjoy my project as much as I did making it! And you really should give this a try if you haven't!! :)
