Today's the 4th Tuesday of the month! That means it's time for a new inspiration challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. This is my DT project for the Challenge.

This project is inspired by this photo chosen by the lovely Angela, who is our hostess for the month of March. To me this picture screams EASTER! Easter eggs, pastel colours, spring, flowers...
What does this photo inspire YOU to create? I hope you will join us in our challenge. To inspire you even further, check out the fabulous creations of my DT teamates at the Challenge Blog HERE. There is a prize of a $25 gift certificate from Magnolia-licious.
Here's a picture of the top of the box. Sitting here is Tilda and Her Bunny. This image is from Magnolia's Butterfly Dreams Collection 2011.
On two sides of the box--opposing sides--I have a Tilda image each. This one below is Tilda With Hanging Rabbit. She is also from the Butterfly Dreams Collection 2011.
And this one is Teddy Bear Love from the Princes and Princesses Collection 2012.
The stamps for all these adorable images are available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store for anything and everything Magnolia. She has a huge collection of their full-size and mini stamps. Check them out and while you're on site, don't overlook those Memory Box and Poppystamps dies--they're exquisite!
The other two sides of my box have this same floral arrangement.
Heather Perreaux calls this her 'Secret Box'. Secreted inside the box are 3 trays. I think this is so cool! I think I am going to make a couple more of these boxes for Easter.
Heather has a tutorial on a how to make a 3-inch cube box at the Splitcoaststamper website HERE. And I did make her box first, but the box was too small--those yummy Lindt Easter eggs just wouldn't fit...LOL. So based on the same the concept, I made a this box that is 1 1/2 times higher. And...woo-hoo... the eggs now fit! Also I can now use the standing Tildas to decorate the box.
Do you recognize the background DP's that I used on the sides and the inside of the box? If you're a Maggie lover, they should look familiar to you.
LOL...reduce reuse recycle. I have LOTS of these.I hope you will join us in our challenge. For more inspirations, please visit our challenge site HERE and check out the fabulous creations of our DT team. The prize for this challenge is a $25 gift certificate from Magnolia-licious.
