Tissue Box

Evening All,

I am absolutely knackered lol
 I was up at 4am on Monday to drop my Sister to the airport
 it felt so weird driving there and then not going anywhere lol 
so she won't be back till Saturday 
Being the nice Sister I am I decieded to paint her room
why do I do this to myself :(:( 
Well I am almost done have done the walls
 then decided to paint the wardrobes to freshen them up,
 then the radiator needed doing and the doors and windows
 the list just keeps getting longer lol 
Tomorrow I am minding a friends 6 year old boy
 so we are going to bake cupcakes :)

Anyways I have seen a lot of Tissue Box covers on blogs at the moment 
and I decided to make one up for my Sisters room
 which I painted Pink & Blue
 and what better stamps to use then LOTV :)
I found the tutorial over at Split coast Stampers
 it was relatively easy to make up decorating it was the hard bit lol 

There are a few pics coming (not brill quality as usual lol sorry )
I also forgot to take a pic of one of the sides
 but it is the same as the one with the stamp on it 
only difference is the border is pink and butterfly is blue

Punches - 
Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly Punch around the Page, 
 Big & Small Butterfly
Gems - All from Stash
Spellbinders Die
