New tissue box

Morning all, 

Hope you have some sunshine where ever you are in the world. Today so far here in Kent, UK we have at last a short break between rain down pours!  But I can't complain, as it has been so mild this year. Just feel so sorry for people that have lost their homes due to the many flooded areas. 

Just to show you today what I have been up too. Whilst the Nathalie Kalbachs                 (www. ) Creative Jumpstart has finished, today is the last day of entering their giveaways. So this is my entry, using household produces just lying around our house.
I was greatly  inspired by the tutorial done by Dina Wakely using sacking, she showed us how to make embellishments for cards, journals etc .
I took it one step further and covered an old tissue box with her method.
Hope you like it, I love it! (hope that doesn't sound big headed) 

I love crackle, so this is just up my street

Thanks for dropping by x
