Do you like a good Boutique?

I know I do! Welcome to the September Cross Canada Blog Hop where we are highlighting one of our new paper packs - Boutique! So pretty!

If you got here from Brandi's blog, you are in the right place, but if you get lost along the way, just head back to Michelle's blog in Nova Scotia where you will find the complete list of hoppers. As you make your way through our blogs, please let us know what you think, whether it is a comment about the artwork or you want information about a technique you see. Now, on to my project.

I have had this little box from one of our idea books from several years ago in my stash and decided it was time to make use of it. It may end up as an accordian album, but right now I will just keep mementoes from our trip in November in it. I love how our Peacock cardstock works so well with the Boutique B&T papers. The top of the box uses two of the PML cards from the Boutique papers as well as several of the complements. I popped the flowers up with our thin foam dots - single layer on the large flower and then doubled them up for the small flower so it sat a bit higher. I am really happy with how this box turned out.

The strip across the front of the lid flap is one of the sticker stips from the complements sheets. It doesn't reach all the way across so I cut it and stuck it down, then added the flower to cover the gap.

That's it for me this month. Please join us again next month when we will highlight the Grateful Hearts and Hello Pumpkin paper packs. Until then, hop on over to Kristine's blog for some more great artwork!
