your an inspiration 2

Hello everyone
a couple of weeks ago I made a CAS card but I didn't like it so I took it apart added layers for some dimension, and pattern paper... much better - what do you think??
the stamp is from CTMH and I really love the fun Silhouette and the "your an inspiration" sentiment is from Pink by Design the other one from CTMH
the paper is all from my scrap bin!  love it when i can use some of that!
I love the bright colours 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges
hiding in my craft room - share a challenge
eureka stamps - atg

altered box - back to school

Hello everyone!  Hope you had a great weekend.
Ok... so if you have been following my blog you will know that I am more of a scrap-booker and card maker.  I haven't made too many altered items... but I thought that i would make an exception for a couple of challenges and some fancy pants paper that i had left over from last Septembers Scaptastic club kit.

I started out with a box from the dollar store... I actually really like the checkered red top of the box
 I wasn't too keen on the flowers... well for a school box that is
 Added some fanny pants paper some embellishments...
and  voila.. a beautiful box for school items
 some close ups below on the embellishments and paper used 

 I was inspired by the below challenges to make this box

When making the background i was thinking about a challenge at Scraptastic - Subway art... love how the words are all over and different ones for the beach, Sun, Water, Sand, Fun, Hot, Chillin, Friends, Party, Drinks and Beach was in there... I don't think i am forgetting any but it is mostly covered up now. 
Again some CTMH stamps for the sunshade, chairs and flip flops
in this picture you can see a close up of the glitter i used on background paper
I used my cricut to create the letters and the shapes behind the picture
I used Washi tape in the corners
I used basic grey paper for the frames and the polka dot paper
and one more of the LO :)
