A Little Bit of Recycling!

Happy Wednesday people.  Gosh how the weeks are flying by I can't believe we are half way through April already :)
Yesterday I managed to create a few co-ordinating projects using Prima Nature Garden collection papers.
This box is 7cm x 12 cm I covered it in the papers and used flowers, butterflies, say it in crystals gems and wooden embellishments all from Prima!

The pink lace with gems is from Live and Love Crafts.
I have used the smallest dies from Spellbinder- Opulant Ovals and cut using gold metal foil to create the corner decorations.
I have heat embossed the wooden embellishments using encrusted jewel kit from Stampendous.

The key and lock are from are from Prima and also the 'precious' sentiment on the front of the box. I have embossed the key and lock and used glossy accents on the key.

My next project that I have made using co-ordinating Prima embellishments is a Bangle, small hair clips and a large hair clip. The bangle and large hair clip have been recycled from my old jewellery and hair accessory box:)

I would like to enter these projects into the following challenge-
Artistic Inspirations - anything but a card (The box)
Crafty Boots Challenge - Recycle (The bangle)
Everybody-Art-Challenge - Bling (The box)

    I saw maybe one or two other semifinalists had posted theirs so I followed suit. I hope its ok. I looked around for something saying that we couldn't post but didn't find anything. oh boy end of year paperwork.. ugh. good luck with that. Hopefully it won't take up too much more of your time.
    I noticed the Prima call but honestly I was waiting to see what happened first with HC..I don't want to overcommit.. if I make anyone's team LOL. You are definitely on their level.
