Rosie and I have altered a couple of old box files for our challenge this week
I'm using mine to keep all my grungeboard and chipboard inside. If you've not used grungeboard before, you might want to see Tim Holtz demonstrating how to use it here: Its very clever stuff but smells oddly like leather! Karen at Scrapz was kind enough to give Rosie and I some to use and I liked it so much I went on her website and bought some more!
Of course you can use chipboard for the challenge if you prefer.

Wow, you decorated the inside too. I just love it, its a fab idea.
Just ordered my grungeboard from Karen , but Im making a start on the box whilst im waiting for it to arrive. Well done they are lovely, its great that the challenges are so different each week. Thank you for sharing your ideas, what an inspiration both of you are, Jaqi xx

That's a great piece, I love the colours you've used and how you've made the ironwork type thingy with the 'hinges' on it - it really looks good - now I'd have to have that out on display all the time so's people could admire it - not that having things out is a problem, just that mine don't look good!

This is fab Linda... love the arty look on the inside of the box as well as the beautiful decoration on the outside and what a great idea to keep your chipboard in it too. Pretty and practical too :D
Didn't manage to finish the last challenge with Dad being in hospital so will be a two for one this week I'm afraid. Was lucky enough to have some ready made stuff to fill my weeks blog posts but am now running on
Need me a full on crafty session to catch up with everything.
Have a fab weekend hun
