Bearly Mine - 22

Morning all.... yep back to wet and gloomy.. however... can't expect much else this time of year, and it could be a lot worse, from what I just heard on the news.

But lots of pretties to see this week made by the DT over  at Bearly Mine Challenges, where today starts a new challenge, with the theme of


It certainly challenged m e, thats for sure, having to think outside of the box, a nd hehe.. no pun actually intended there... 
Now... what started of, being a relatively simple idea, turned out into a fiasco.. (nothing to do with the challenge as such,, as the idjut.. ie me :)) thinking she a smart a...e !!! 
Had a lovely little box... all ready to be 'contstructed' .. basically glued lol.... sorted... box made... all I had to do was decorate it.... so I spent a few hours, colouring up an image, happily sticking pretty papers to said box... and just as adding those last finishing details.... and I mean LAST .... lightbulb come on..... (in head that is).....  as pretty as it all was... and as happy as I was .... WRONG DT CHALLENGE !!!!!!  I cant possibly repeat what come out of my mouth.... but to say the air was a tad blue, was an understatement. :)
So... next day.... well had enough of it by then... thought of another 'not so' bright idea.... and... make a box from nesties..... erm.... that didnt go quite according to plan either.... lol.. so... over to plan C then..... 

so here is my... anything but a card and anything but quick and easy !!! ROFL... (wasnt laughing at the time, I can tell you)... 

Honestly it really isnt a hard challenge, if you go and see what the rest of the girls have made, you will see there are plenty of fabulous ideas, after all said and done I just m ade a right hash of it LOL...  the rest of them, have certainly put me to shame.... but I had lost the will to live by then LOL.

Make sure you check out the fabby prizes this week kindly donated to us by Bearly Mine Designs, Digi Doodle and Stamp Fairy. 

The papers I have used are  Simply Dots and Fairyland Bearly Mine Designs,

Cannot wait to see what all you girls come up.... Im off for my normal caffine fix now.. have a fabby two weeks, and I hope your creation goes much better to plan than mine did LOL

hugs Jackie xx

Hi Jackie I think we all had a similar problem deciding what to create for the Challenge I certainly did, but I had a bit of help from a friends template and took it from there. Anyway your box is stunning and beautifully pretty. hugs Shirleyxxxxxxx
