Baby Christening Exploding Box

Hi, everyone and thanks for popping by! It's challenge day at Mo's Digital Pencil Too and I thought about making something other than a card for a change. This is going to be a gift for my newest godson; hope his mother doesn't follow my blog:). It's an exploding box; I used to make some of these in the past and seem to have forgotten they take a lot of time to put together and embellish. Well, I'm not a godmother every other day:)


Sorry for the pics, sometime I will have to sit and work on my camera settings, just that priorities are always other.

I left two more spots for other pics to be inserted. Those lovely fairies are all part of a set and a marvel to color, as my time was limited I chose them because besides the skin  there's so little to color up:). You can find them here in Mo's online store.

Here are some more pics:





Recipe:
DP: Cajoline Scrap- Easter Papers
Coloring medium: copics/promarkers
Embellishments: flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and IAM Roses; ribbon and lace/stash, feathers/stash, bling/WOC, acetate, crocheted baby boots and dummy 
Die cuts: nestabilities- Fleur de Lys Squares, nestabilities- circle- grand and classic scalopped, Tim Holtz- Alphabet die strip- Upon a time, Cheery Lynn- exotic butterflies 2

I would like to enter my box in the following challenges:
Charisma Cardz -Use at least 5 different designer papers, Dutch Dare Card Challenge -For the Boys,  Crafts and Me -Dies/Punches, Fab 'n' Funky - Pastel Colors , Deep Ocean Challenge -For A Boy Card Mania - Fairies or ButterfliesKaboodle Doodles - Bling

Have I told you what this week's challenge was at Mo's? Not a chance to guess just by looking at my box:). It's BLING- those tiny sparkling cute beads we love adding to our  craft projects. Our sweet talented DT sister Kim is the hostess for this challenge and she made just the perfect choice. Who doesn't love bling?:)
So pick up a Mo image and some bling, make your own creation and share it with us at Mo's this week. You may be the lucky winner of a 5 dollar shopping spree at Mo's online store!
Hope many of you will join!

Have a wonderful rest of the week!
Hugs,

Oh hun, I just know what you mean... Those boxes really take a lot of time to make! But every single second is worth it, as you know that this box will be a little piece of memory for your grandson and his parents! And your box is sooo beautiful and created with love, I am sure they will treat it like a treasure!
Big hugs, Anja

Love this it is just gorgeous! I see these boxes a lot but they can sometimes be quite porrly decorated - it's fab to see one done to such a high standard - I may have to make one myself as I haven't made one since I made 1 boy & 1 girl one when I very first started crafting - they're so rubbish! time to do a good one like yours me thinks!
