I just love making things out of scraps!!!!

What's scrapbook for if you don't make things out of scraps?
Today I would like to show you an altered box I made out of a pierce box. This was inspired by Arlene Cuevas. I saw her altered box at G45's blog and it was just STUNNING!! After I saw her video, it made me want to make this altered box :D Check out her video here. You'll love it!!!!!

I coated the cover with Modge Podge(sparkle) so it's really sparkly:)
箱の下部分は絵の具でぐちゃぐちゃに塗って、上蓋にはペーパーを貼ってからModge Podge(sparkle) を塗りました。とってもキラキラしてます☆

And here are some different angles. There's a mini album inside this box.

These pics were taken when I was a baby. This will be the first time to crop my baby pics:D My mom won't let me have many pics because she keeps them in her album!!

This is me with my mom. I don't get a long with her very well most of the times, but sometimes (really rare) I have a fun time talking to her. Maybe this is because we are to much alike. Stubborn....

This box was made out of scraps, but I really love how it turned out.
It is a really lovely thing we can keep our precious pics this way. All of my creations are my treasure (of course the ones my friends gave me too:D), and I am looking forward to look back through them when I get older.

Okay, well that's it for today. Thanks dropping by and have a great day!
