Explosion!

For ages now I've been looking at Exploding Boxes and thinking about having a go at making one. When my designer kit arrived from Bubbly Funk with the November goodies inside I knew what I would do with the box-blank from 3Bugs that I found in there!
It was more a case of what to put in it, so I left it to one side while I got started on other projects and hoped that an idea would have a chance to brew!

So I made the card I showed on Bubbly Scrumptious emag last week, and some more cards and projects that I've still to put on there and then I got started on this box. I've loved making this so much it's jumped the queue of projects because I couldn't wait any longer to blog it! So today I've uploaded my Christmas Memories Box in my Thursday Project slot, and now I can put it on here too.
It's not finished yet - I'm adding photos of the Christmases since Hubby and I were married, and I don't want to fill it up all in one go. I'm trying to choose photos that bring reminders of certain events, particular gifts, different people and places associated with our various Christmases together. It's been a lovely thing to do, but not without some sadness when I see photos of loved ones who are no longer here to celebrate with us.
You can check out my box project, and see lots of fab projects for the November Kit, all the other kits and lots of other things available from the Bubbly Funk shop in the Bubbly Scrumptious emag

I've just been over to the BF shop site and see there are still November kits in stock - I thought they'd be sold out! So there's still a chance to get your sticky mitts on these fab Dream Stree Wonderland papers, the box, a beautiful chipboard book and all sorts of other delights - check the shop for a full list of contents
