My first Christmas creation for this year!!

WARNING:-  AN EXTREMELY PHOTO HEAVY POST!!!!! (so grab a cuppa and a choccy bar)

Hi folks, I am so ticked off I have been trying to upload my piccies on this post all day and at last it has decided to play ball.  Anyway, what I wanted to show you is my first Christmas project of this year which is an exploding box.  I haven't made one of these for a long time.  I went with a pink/purple/grey colour theme and lots of Tildas.  All have been coloured with a mixture of copics and prismacolor pencils and tons of stickles

First up a couple of the outside.

Next up an overall picture of what its like when open.

Now for a couple of closer views.

Okay, if you are still with me you deserved that choccy bar.  I really enjoyed doing this one but I think it is reserved for someone really special as it took me a few days to complete. 

I would like to enter this into a few challenges:-

Right thats it from me for today.  I think I am going to go and dig out the Christmas films so I can watch whilst I am crafting and really get in the Crimbly spirit as I am once again so so behind.

Take care, happy crafting.
