Fly Away box

My eldest child Alice, flew the nest yesterday. She's gone to Keele university to study Music and English. She texted this morning to say that she'd had a free buffet at the Christian Union, and was going to a lunch at the chapel today after the morning service. No doubt she won't starve then! So my project here is based on flying away.

I altered this chipboard box for the Saturday Workout challenge of altered stuff. The box has sat in a drawer for about 10 years as I didn't know what to do with it. I could quite happily alter more. I think it probably needs a coat of varnish for protection.


Stamps : Time to Stamp For the Birds and Feathered Friends; Paper Artsy Wings 2

Inks : Adirondack Dabber Cloudy Blue; VersaMagic Sea Breeze, Aegean Blue, Night Sky and Key Lime

Extras : Chipboard Box

Ooooh I hope her flying away is not too difficult for you! I am sure you will miss her terribly, but it sounds like she's got off to a flying start!!! This box is very inspirational and the colours are gorgeous.
Love to you all,
