Edited to add: In a comment, Corry asked what I used as a base for this box. I did put it in the supplies, but forgot to mention it up here. This is a Tim Holtz Configurations box. It comes with all the little boxes inside that you can arrange any way you like! It was so fun!
I mentioned last week that my friend Karlene was coming for a visit. We had a fabulous time! We hiked a total of 21 kilometres, had a Twilight-a-thon, ate junk food, giggled, and did some major crafting. This is what I made! For the photos, I used the Packing Tape Transfer technique that I read about on the Scrapperlicious blog. Behind the photos is some vanilla cardstock that I sponged with SU's Apricot Appeal and More Mustard ink. The Grungeboard letters were spritzed with Apricot Tattered Angels Chalkboard Mist, inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, and then covered with Glossy Accents to make them shine. All over the place are little touches: a stack of buttons, glass jars full of beads, Idea-ology Fragments with DP behind it, metal charms from hair clips or from Karlene's stash, a hair scrunchie, a seashell, and various flowers both dried and fabric. Here's some closeups:
