Configuration box

Today was one of those days where everything goes right - for once.  Had a brilliant time finishing my Configurations box and listening to/arguing with the radio - Any Answers really gets my goat sometimes.
Before I started to fill it up with goodies I got out the Brilliance inks and altered the look of the Tissue Tape as it looked to grungy for the subject.  I also altered and added a few bits of paper doilly to look like shelf liners and then spent an hour (can you believe that?) making a 1inch high hat box.
In pride of place the lovely dress-form that Jo gave me for my birthday - hope you don't mind me adding a little brilliance to the flowers Jo to help it tone in.
That's crafting done for the day - better get the dinner on (translated as - put the M&S ready meal in the oven) before DH gets home from walking the dog.

This is the finished article.


Jo's birthday gift.


The dreaded hat box .
Detail - the tape measure is a strip of paper.

Wow! that is really superb and I'm honoured to have a piece of mine in it. Don't mind at all that you enhanced it in whatever way you choose. As you know I was limited in what I had when I made it on my demo table.
Love Jo x

Wow, Ann, this is gorgeous. Love the shelf edging and that hat box was definitely worth all the time and effort. I love the colour scheme and Jo's dress form looks fab in there.
