Late Object D'Art OR Todays LTD challenge..oh and a spot of Candy

OK so i'm a few hours late for the box challenge over on the Object D'Art Blog as this weeks new performance has been announced which is MIRROR's....

But i am however on time for today's newly announced challenge over on Lots to Do which is LITTLE BOXES

I Started off with a simple little gift box

Changed the way the lid opened, gave it few coats of gesso, added some colour, a nice clasp and some lace

and lined the inside base with orange felt, and hay presto, one altered box.
........................................
I am offering this wee box {which will be stuffed full of secret treats by the way}
as my first BLOG Candy
Thought it was about time as a thank you to all my visitors
I've just noticed my blog is nearly 1 year old on the 9th April
So all you need do is leave me a comment before the 9th
{and a link on your blog to my candy if you so wish}
and i'll draw a winner out
on my BLOGOVERSARY {around 9pm ish}
.......................

Thanks for stopping by and good luck
