Jewelry Box Challenge

Happy Friday Everyone!!

Well  my friend Darlene  aka "Dars Crafty Creations" and I
 are at it again and this time we have
another lady Nan G.  aka "Froggy Designs"
who joined us for our friendly little challenge. Welcome Nan G! 
This time we altered a jewelry box that we got at our 
local thrift store. Incase this is your first time visiting
 here I will explain that Darlene and I go shopping for
 treasures that we can alter and we get items that are
identical or as close as possible then we pick an item
 and alter it then tell each other when we are done
 then set a date to post it and excitedly wait to see what each has
 done with their item. It's so much fun to see how different
we each redo our item. We never know what the other
 person has done until we are finished.
This time we also stipulated ahead of time that we had
to use the Graphic 45 paper called "A Ladies Diary".

 So here now is my jewelry box before I did anything to it.

Now here is the finished piece,
 it has a battery flicker candle in it
to use as a nightlight.

Well there you have it my repurposed jewelry box.
I hope you stop over to Darlene and Nan G blogs and see
what they have done with their jewelry boxes and please let us
each know what you think of our projects we would love to know!
 Thank you for taking the time to stop and visit !!
Hope you have a wonderful day May God bless you all.

P.S. If you have any questions about my project please feel free to ask.
I didn't use the lid I kept it for another project I hope
 to make in the near future.
