Travel light

Great British weather!
Up here in Yorkshire we have had rain most of the week  - I love it!
I can't wait to get out of my flip-flops and into my boots :-)

Just perfect for you to all stay indoors and join this week's new challenge  at CES.
Our host is the lovely Julie and she has chosen the theme

Mix and Match
Papers from 2 different manufacturers

Check out the awesome work from my teamies - 
they are such a talented bunch.

I went for a little project - 
it's been a while since I made anything other than a card.

I have made this Suzanne Dean case before, but this time I scaled the measurements up to make it a little bigger.

The DP's are a mixture of Prima Botanical and Websters Pages. 
Pop on over to Emma's Store to grab yourself some of these gorgeous papers in her SALE, or treat yourself to something NEW. :-)

 I decorated my case with blooms, pearls and Baker's Twine - all available at Emma's.   The little eiffel tower stamp is from Penny Black, J'aime Paris and the tickets and postage stamps are cut from the Prima DP.
The handle is attached with brass look brads.

 I was so happy to find this Chocolat label at the Graphics Fairy - it was just perfect for the inside.
I confess - these choccies are actually a little too big for the case - the lid won't close! So, unfortunately I will have to eat these and find some others - and it might just take me a few attempts before I get it right!!

Challenges - 
Charisma Cardz - Distressing
C.R.A.F.T -  Gifts
