Valentines Chocolate box

Hi there girls.
I hope that you are all well, and that you did not eat too many chocolates on Valentines day!
I ate almost the whole box of these Lindt chocies in November last year, I thought that the box was so cute I kept it, I have a pink one too...yes I ate those too with the help of hubby and a friend.
This year I thought that I would use the box for a mini for my hubby for Valentines day. Seeing that the tin was re-cycled I used a dishwashing tablet container for the corrugated board and some packaging for the other two pages.I wet the board and removed the top layer of cardboard, at least some of it. I then cut hearts out of tissue paper and some sweet wrappers, for the front page. I also added some pink acrylic paint and then I Mod-podged all 3 pages
My papers are K&CO Rough and Tumble and Prima.

As You Can se there are a lot of tags and secret journaling spots, there is even a love letter...that is where I wrote all that I loved about Pano!!!

I don't know if you noticed but I kept embellishments to a minimun due to space restrictions of the tin.
That is all for now girls, my son has gone ski-ing and has taken the camera that I do my videos with, so I guess the recording of various projects will have to wait till after his return.
I wish all my fellow Orthodox scrappers a good Lent.
All the best
Love Zeffy

MY MINI for the JanuaryTWS

Hi there Scrappers.
Firstly I would like to thank you for all your lovely comments....I appreciate the feed back,so please leave a comment
My swap partner Charlene received her mini yesterday,and now that she has seen it I feel that I can share it with you. I made a video but it is 13 minutes long and I am not at all sure how to edit it,so I guess the pictures will have to do for now.The papers are mostly DCWV the Que Sera Sera collections and the envelopes with the tags are Basic Grey I think Lemonade Collection enjoy. I am willing to answer any questions.

As you can see I had three sections to the Review, Reflect and Renew....I still need to crop the last couple of hang on for the next post to see the last couple of pages,
Bye for now.

Good evening Ladies.
As we say here in Greece, I wish you all a good week and an even better month!
On saturday we had a crop in Athens,and I attended some of the lessons. The following lay-outs are what we did during Elina's one lesson.
She first taght us how to erase a background (without Photoshop)  We only used some water and a paint brush and after some rubbing we removed the top layer of colour off the photo,and then we added another background with acrylic paints. One can add all sorts of things,your imagination can run wild!

Elina emphesised continuously that we should not be afraid to TEAR up our precious paper....And this is what we did in the next layout, we let rip, we inked and curled and this is the result.

I finished these two layouts today I hope you like them,let me know what you think.
Thats all for now folks, keep well and have a great month !
