Midweek Magnolias DT #93 Anything Goes with Summer Fun

Good morning my dears,  Our new challenge has just begun over at 

This fortnight the theme is 

Anything Goes with Summer Fun.

I had this book box in my things to alter cupboard so I decided to make it into a Summer Memory box for my great Niece, what little girl doesn't love to keep little bits n bobs in a pretty box,  I'm sure she will love it.

Now this was a project and a half,  I coloured most of the images 

As you can see I've used lots of stamps from various collections.  The first being those pretty Tildas from the Sea Breeze 2013 collection, Autumn Sunflowers are from Turning Leaves collection 2012 and the sentiment It's Summer Time is also from the Sea Breeze 2013 collection.

I am half way through making a mini Summer themed mini album to put inside this book box but as it's not entirely finished I can only show you the front page and a couple of the inside pages. I will show you in it's entirety when it's complete.

Once again I've used multiple stamps - some from the new Summer Club Kit and some from Animal of the Year collection along with various other sweet Tilda's.  

 Front Cover of my Mini Album

Inside front cover and 1st page

All the images are coloured and ready to insert into the mini album I just need to finish decorating some of the pages.

I've used some of my new Doohickey Pink Vintage photo dies on the front of the book and on the inside to mount Tilda onto. you will also see the new Doohickey Club kit dies which are all nautical themed. 

I nearly forgot to mention that the paper I used is actually a roll of very pretty wall paper that I got for £1.00 in B&M Bargains, I have enough left to make at least 10 other mini albums. !!!! lol 

That's about it from me for now my dears.  I hope you will come over and join us, you really need to pop over to Midweek Magnolias and take a look at the amazing creation the wonderful DT have made to enthuse and motivate you, they are stunning.

Looking forward to visiting you over the next few week.
