Quirky Crafts GDT

I had the opportunity to guest design at Quirky Crafts this challenge.  The theme this time is "Christmas Like in the Good Old Days" and the theme is Vintage Altered Christmas.  My project is a box I found on Silhouette Online Store and I used digital papers from Far Far Hill.  The digi is from this fortnight's sponsor:

My image, "Lil Angel" is by Lil Diva Stamps, provided by Stitchy Bear.

The deadline is December 7 so there is still time to play along!

I have never actually altered anything in my life so this is my first attempt at making something that wasn't a card, but I'm quite happy with it.

Digi:  Lil Divas @ Stitchy Bear - Lil Angel
Digital Papers:  Far Far Hill
Box & Sentiment from Silhouette Online Store
Woodsies Heart
Tim Holtz paint
Pearl strands, lace and ribbon from stash
