I'm Back!! + Reading Beauty

23:22:00

**Winner of my Make it Crafty candy has been drawn but will be posted on the Make it Crafty blog shortly. Please check the store blog or the facebook page to check if you are a winner! :) **

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and exciting holidays!! I can't believe it has been about two weeks since I have blogged/crafted! I had a lovely break and we have made huge progress with the crafty room...you wouldn't believe it :) And yes I have been a little slack - have to get photos when I can! Well I will be by all of your blogs tonight to say hello :)

First challenge of the year is up over at Saturated Canary and it is a fun one! Your project needs to be based on a song. For my project I have made a special gift box using Reading Beauty, and have based it on the Beauty and the Beast song by Celine Dion :)

The box is a Kaisercraft one that I have painted up and decorated with Pion Designs Papers. I also lined the box with light blue velvet....you can even see some of the gift soaps I have popped in :)


I have coloured up Reading Beauty using my copics. Here are the colours that I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R11
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Blue Outfit: B93, B95, B97, B99
Purple Book: RV91, RV93, RV95, RV99


I would love to see all of your creations for the upcoming challenge and I look forward to popping around and visiting you all tonight!! Also, I have a little request....if you are a new follower and would like me to pop over to your blog could you please leave a link? I would love to stop by but find it so hard to keep up so a link would be perfect so I can return the favour for you visiting :D Thank you!! xx 

(ps. now that I have cleaned out all of my crafty stuff and organised it in my new room I can feel a candy coming on...!! ;)
