A creative sort of day with the girls

Do day I had the girls here for a little artsy/craftsy sorta afternoon. As always.. it's fun to sit , and not only "create" with these girls.. but just relax and chat also.
I had put together a little "challenge project" for the day. I had these little keepsake boxes that I filled with just random bits of paper, chipboard, ribbon ,embellishments ect. ( each on with different goodies on the inside). The challenge was to make something using only what is in the box you received.
Here's mine.( you can click to see it larger if you want)

I used a page out of a old book, some trim, a large blue paint chip sample , the ribbon that was around the box, I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Glass decorative frame, A Glimmer Chips butterfly, and a Crafty Secrets Images. ( the bird)
All spritzed with Pearl Glimmer Mist of course. lol
Well, I managed to get a photo before we started..then I get so caught up in things , I forget to get photos of everyone working. duh! Sorry , I'll do better with that next time.
These are the boxes for each girl before they started.

Here are three of the finished ones. ( you can click to see them larger)

It was a fun and very relaxing day! I totally enjoyed it.
