Star Gift Box and More Craft Fair Photos!

Good Evening One and All, I hope your day has been a good one for you.
I've had a very productive day crafting with some of my new bits and pieces that have been recently bought, got all the washing out and dried and a few other bits of housework done, even went food shopping which I just hate doing.

I've a little gift box to show today;

A star box made from a template from Crafter's Companion and Centura Pearl card. paper from a Kanban pad, Peel Off border and a mixture of Roses from WO and some Baby's Breath and gold lace from Hobby Craft.

Another few photos from the Fair;

This is Amanda and she makes the most gorgeous bespoke frames, and she had a beautiful collection including this large one made for her new Granddaughter Olivia. What an amount of work goes into them and she is so imaginative in her designs. I think they are amazing and she has only just started out crafting.  She made me one which I just adore and will show another day.

Well, that's me for tonight, feet up and a bit of knitting I think.
Keep well everyone, Big Hugs to those not so well, and a thank you for all the lovely comments  on yesterday's post.
