Merry Christmas

 This Christmas will be different because we have a new son in law and they won't be home for the holidays.  But I'm sure they will celebrate a beautiful first Christmas together.  This is my favorite gift of the season!  I had bought this Seven Gypsies collage box and I used Lexy's favorite engagement photo.  I printed it on some canvas that I had bought years back and glued it to the background.  This I just started adding stuff.  I love the way it came out with all the little love details!

 The Tim Holtz bottles with the glitter in them are awesome and sparkly potions!!
 The butterfly is covered with 2 layers of Super Thick Clear and I used some glitter sprinkled in the top layer, then did a cracked ice technique on them.
 The edges of the box were covered with music washi tape and some Rose Inka Gold rubbed on the very edges.
 The sentiment is from my Rock N Roll stamp set and is embossed with Cerulean EP
 For the top I ended up using the alphabet letters that I had left over from Lexy making bracelets years ago.  I put a colored wire through them.

I wrapped it all up so nice to ship it to her in Kansas and then realized I had not taken any pictures of the box, so had to unwrap it to take pictures.  I'm glad I did though so I can share! 
Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas with joy and happiness abounding!
