Hi everyone!!! I am back...... I know I have neglected my blog for ages now...... feel really guilty about it but the last few weeks have been really busy with one thing and another...... Christmas, New Year, illness and life in general.... so much going on in our lives at the moment and my mojo doing a disappearing act didnt help.... but hopefully I am back on track now!!
This exploding box I made for my granddaughter Bethany's 18th birthday earlier this month..... didnt realise until I gave it to her though that I had made a boo-boo with her year of birth..... should have been 1994 and not 93 ..... duh!! Still, I have rectified it since then ...... it had to be right as hopefully it will be a keepsake for a long time to come. I love making exploding boxes..... its such a delight to see the recipients face when they open it! I followed a fab tutorial here http://sazzlecraft.blogspot.com/search/label/Exploding%20Box for the dimensions of the box and the cake........ then I had great fun decorating it ..... the cake was a bit fiddly but worth doing ..........I wanted to make it as girly as possible.......Beth was thrilled with it which made it all worthwhile.

Thats it from me today.... a short and sweet post ....... enjoy the rest of your day.... hope your weather if better than we have in Cheshire at the moment, its been a real mixed bag today, rain, sunshine, wind and hailstones!!
