Totally Papercrafts #29 Rainbow

Good Morning everyone,
well, from last week's entries over at Totally Papercrafts
it looks as though lots of you
' like to be beside the seaside, beside the sea! '
Check the blog to see who the lucky challenge winner was.

This week's host is Joey,
who is hopefully well recovered from her bout of flu.
Joey has chosen the theme

'RAINBOW'

So get your spades ready and let's go and find that pot of gold!!
You can add rainbows to your cards, or nice, bright rainbow colours
and if you need some inspiration check out the fab projects from the DT.

Here's my project - a mini mailbox.
Actually it's not that 'mini',
there's plenty of room in there for goodies..  lol*


I used the fab template from QBee at splitcoaststampers
I must have made a mistake somewhere, as I did struggle to get it all to fit properly.
It took some extra cutting, some strong glue and quite a bit of swearing... lol!!

I covered the mailbox with some 'rainbow' paper
added some blooms and the cute little Toga with Flowers
from Sew Many Cards,
who are this week's challenge sponsors.



Then I filled the mailbox with, what else, but Rainbow Drops.
Always a favourite here...    :-)


Mini Mailbox - covered with DP from My Mind's Eye, Magnolia
Digital Stamp - Toga with Flowers from Sew Many Cards, coloured with Copics.
Blooms and Card Candy from my stash.
'You've got treats' made on my comp.
Martha Stewart lace border punch.
