Some Odd 60th xx

Well good afternoon everyone

Is it snowing where you are?? We have a small blizzard on as I type but we've been lucky that not much is lying! To be truthful, I'm not so happy! I want to be our building snowmen lol yeah yeah "big kid" right here heeee! At least I'm warm and cosy sitting here typing

Today I wanted to share this little 60th Exploding Box I made for a Special Lady! 


The information I was given when making this last week was that she liked Lemon colours, so with that I searched through my yummy paper stash and found this 12x12 Doodlebug paper


Having had a small splurge in the Some Odd Girl Digi shop (ok a large one) I decided these images suited the box well with the Spring colours making them pop



Aren't they just stunning images, no wonder I had to buy them ekkkk






I struggled with the flowers to match the centre as I ran out of lemon Mulberry flowers. After playing about I thought these pink ones with green tones roses matched in OK and then added little light gold roses to bring some yellow to the posy. And of course some butterflies to finish

What do you think? I loved making this wee box and it give me lots of enjoyment colouring and matching everything together!
