well it IS their birthday..........

Well it is the 10th birthday over at C&C, so as part of my sample work I decided to push the boat out, a bit...........

       This will be live on the screen on Wednesday this week, as an offering from the Boys at Kraftyhands, with their new CD Man about Town.
This cd really fills a hole in the market, and is very Noel Coward'ish if you understand what I mean?
However to this project. APART from the Macaroons, glitzy card, ribbon and flowers, its all from the cd. But if you get the cd, you might have to hunt to actually find what I used................as they are actually bonus items,.

This is a 10 inch hat box made from a single repeated 5.5 x 5.5 paper, I simply took a snapshot of it with adobe and then printed it out onto 12 x 12 pearlescent card stock, the quality is that good that I was more than comfortable printing it out that size. and that paper is originally as big as the main topper on the lid, minus the glitzy bit.
I havent done too much with this as the file I used was a Silhouette online store file, cut using MTC, but I must admit that the flowers are a redo, I put way too many on before, so I took them off and just put 3 on.

NOW LISTEN IAN AND MIKE>...................No eating till you open the box on air!!  Keep your sticky little mitts off them, as there are loads in the box!

So what did I use? A 9 inch hat box design from Silhouette online, my Cameo, and MTC, some glitzy gold cardstock, for matting, the tiles are from the cd, as is the topper and paper from the Bonus Distressed papers and the City retreat papers. The scallops were cut using the E-bosser and Spellbinders Classic Scallop edgebilities die, the flowers from my stash, decorated with Cosmic Shimmer Gold Pearlescent glue.

Right, as I made the macaroons late tonight, so they will still be good on Wednesday  I am going to have to drive these to the Boys office in Leeds tomorrow, so, a bit of C&C and then beddie bye-byes for me,
