Back to school

Happy Monday to you all!

It's time for a new BnW challenge and this time Kathy has chosen "Back to school".
Well - I decided to make this picnic box. I thought that it would be nice to keep the memories from Summer in there + of course also put in some treats for the ones going back to school (well - maybe it will work for us adults as well - we also need treats for going back to work -right??)

* I coloured little Princess Tales with my copics. Added a few flowers, cute little butterfly and pearls of course ;-) Here's a pic of how the box looks like when you open one of the sides.

Please note - my new long nails ;-) I finally decided to "buy" some new nails for my friends wedding (Aug 28th). I love them, but I did not expect that it would be harder for me to craft with them *lol*. You should see me struggling with removing the plastic cover from the adhesives......hubby has rescued me a few times - so I've made him stay up longer just to help me out. So if anyone has any tricks or tips on how to craft with acrylic nails - please let me now :-)

Kramis and have a wonderful Monday,

What a fabulous project Anki, I really must try to create something like this! Loving your new nails, I had acrylic for a long time and you do get used to them, but I do have to say it is so much easier to craft now that I had them removed ;O) My natural nails grow so fast I was having back-fills done almost every week and it was taking up too much crafting time!!!
