Exploding Box - My Last Polka Doodles Sample

Good morning. Yes it's me again, this getting quite a habit!!! Don't worry sporadic posting will resume again shortly! ;D

I just thought I'd show you my final sample that I did for the Polka Doodles Create & Craft Show at the weekend. It is of course an exploding box.

When I received the Candy Doodles CD I had a quick flick through it for inspiration and almost instantly found the little birdhouse template and the butterflies. Now those of you have followed me for any length of time know what a sucker I am for birdhouses and butterflies, so I just knew that I had to make something with it. My only problem was what to do as I had way too many ideas running around in my poor little head!

In the end I decided that as time was relatively short that I'd stick to something I knew, but play with the template. This is what I ended up with.

Cute or what? And so much fun to make! Which is a good job really as my poor daughter attempted to claim it and was gutted when I told her she couldn't have it, so guess who's gotta make another one?

Anyway, I hope I haven't bored you all this week with my frequent posts! Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you on Friday with another cute project (what has got into me!!).
