Craft Hoarders Anonymous Craft Challenge #4 - Show Some Sparkle, Glitz, or Glam!

Graphic 45 is our sponsor this month. They are known for their fabulous vintage products and papers. To pay homage to their glamour and style we were to create a  project that shows off your hoarded sparkly items. Pump up the glam by using our inspiration photo (
I used Graphic 45 Ladies Diary and Sizzix Notebook Pocket Die to create my project with along with some bling, baubles, flowers, ribbon, oh my.....
I added several tags to the inside of the box, along with some ribbon ties so they will be easier to remove from the box...I plan on putting some of my favorite Bible verses on them, great way to start the day but remembering God's Word.
I just love this saying that is on one of the border strips and just felt it would go perfectly with my Scripture Box. I added a piece of Tim Holtz film strip along with a vintage watch part I have been hoarding for some time now....doesn't it fit wonderfully on the box.
I fussy cut my lady out from two pieces of the same papers so I could layer them together, I just love the depth of textures and Graphic 45 never fails in that vintage look.
