Catch a falling star...

And put it in your pocket, never let it fade away.

I just love how easy it is to create with Graphic 45 paper.  It is so beautiful.  This past Saturday I spent the entire morning toodling on this project; decorating a star box and filling it up with goodies.  I love aqua and cream.

The paper lent itself to this water nymph definition.

I covered the lid's border in sea and water dictionary paper.

Glitter glass on the top and Stickles everywhere else.  Lots of love and drying time in this star. :)

Hi Holly, That star box turned out just beautiful! I love the shades of aqua combined with those creams and beiges.
Have a wonderful week :-)!

That is soooo pretty! The colors are perfect. But now I'm wondering what I've missed in the past few months of crummy internet keeping me from blog reading. Got to go see just what Graphic 45 paper is. :-)

This is absolutely gorgious! I love the color combination and the star box is something you don't see everyday so it makes it all the more special. Wonderful piece, wish I was getting it ;)

Very pretty star box, you can see what a labour of love this was.


Very COOL!!! Love the color combinations!
I was "rearranging" my craftroom today and was looking/admiring the matchbox that you made for me when we did a swap! I'm loving the birdies still!!!

Okay, this is GORGEOUS. Oh my goodness, I must attempt this somehow. I absolutely adore aqua and the sea...two of my favorite things. Okay, I need details. Where did you get the wooden spools and the sea and water dictionary? WOW! WOW! WOW! If I am brave enough to attempt it, I will stop by and let you know.
