Jewelry Box Contest on LSH

Hello all my fellow crafters!  Sorry for the long break between posts!  I am EXTREMELY busy here, between full-time job, full-time mom/maid/chef/wife (and in that order!), swaps, scrapbooking, paper crafting, and etsy shop.....whew...I am finally finding time to post pics of my latest creation!  :o)

This is a contest hosted by our September Guest Designer on LSH, Erin R.  You can also find her at missmagoocreates as well as a youtube channel propsqueen81.

The contest is to create/decorate your own jewelry box.  You can embellish any box/jewelry box or make your own box and embellish.  Thanks to our wonderful Cynthialoowho, I created my jewelry box from her template and tutorial on UStream.

This is my first time to embellish/alter a box, much less to CREATE the box too!!!  It was quite a challenge for me.  I am not completely satisfied with the end result. My bathroom is brown and turquoise, so I matched the colors up perfectly to what I wanted.  Just don't think I did enough embellishing! I need more bling! As I was finishing up the box, several other box ideas came to mind.  So I will be creating many more boxes!!!  Making them for Christmas gifts! :o) 

Here are pics of what I came up with for the contest.  Enjoy!

God bless you all and your families!
