Mini Box in Distress!

Well I had the most amazing time this weekend at Ally Pally, the weather was glorious and the company exceptional. I had such a good time in fact I hardly had any knee pain all weekend, what a bonus.
A big thank you to everyone I spent time with, Especially Gillian and Hels x {oops and how could I have forgotten Alison, sorry hun}
I managed to empty my purse and get lots of lovely things, though I can't share pics just yet as i'm still at my Mums, but will load them as soon as i'm home {or if I can figure how to do it via my mums comp!}
Before I left home I uploaded some of my unblogged pieces..
So today I want to share a little box I decorated, I used several layers of paint dabbers in silver and pink and then scratched and sanded with my timmy tools.
I stamped some paperartsy grass round the edges, and topped the box with some timmy stamped and perfect pearled clay pieces.
The little knob is just an old metal button stuck on with E600.
I know it wasn't made especially for Simon Says Stamp'n'Show but i'm gonna enter it as it is distressed, and that just happens to be their theme this week.
Stay Inky

Glad you had a fab time at Ally Pally Nicky, if you're knees didn't ache then you've obviously found the best therapy - more crafting - lol.
