A Box - TJSC Challenge - She's so Cute 12

Hello and thank you for stopping by today!
It has been a bit quiet in my blog lately, but finally I've regained some
inspiration for paper crafting again :-)
I have made a box and would like to enter it into:
The challenge is to use lace, punched lace or textile in your project.
I have used lace and textile. I painted the box in antique white and
white acrylic paint, and added some Distress Ink -Old Paper-
for an aged look. I also painted the metal corners in white acrylic paint.
Paper from Melissa Frances.
Have a lovely day all!
Today we celebrate Norway's National day :-)
Ønsker mine bloggvenner i Norge en riktig flott 17.Mai!
Now I'm off to start preparing a delicious dinner for tonight ;-)

♥ Hugs, Inger

Baptism Gown For My Grandchildren

Hello blog friends and happy thursday!
Hope you are all well and enjoying spring/early summer :)
I had a great Easter with my family, and a wonderful warm weather, almost like summer.
Today I just thought I'd show you something quite different in my blog . . .
. . . believe it or not - I actually can sew . . . lol ;-)
This is the Baptism Gown I made almost six years ago when my first 
grandson Leo Alexander was born. 
It's a little bit special because it's made from my wedding dress! 
Thought this would be a nice gesture to my grandchildren :)
I only used the fabric, all lace and ribbons are new.
I tried designing it to fit both boys and girls ;-)
In june my new little grandson Ludvig Alexander will be wearing
this on his baptism day.
I also made a matching bonnet.
That's all for today! ;-)
For the time being I very much lack inspiration for making cards,
but hopefully this will soon change! ;)
Have a lovely weekend all!
See you.

♥ Hugs, Inger
