Anything Goes with Eureka! Stamps Challenge

A new Monday means a new challenge over at  EUREKA! STAMPS CHALLENGE BLOG.
This weeks challenge is one of your favorites: ANYTHING GOES CHALLENGE #151

Trying to keep my  ideas in Summer mode  I decided to use this gorgeous  Butterfly and Sunflower Digital Image. 

 Everything is from my stash! I water colored the image, distressed the green/yellow background paper and then spritzed with water over stencil. Layered it all up using foam to pop it up. Finished off with enamel dots.

Train Case Party Favors with Lisa

Happy Friday! I'm sharing two train cases made with SVG Attic's JGW Gone Fishing ~ 3D Fishing Tackle  Box. I have a train case that I absolutely love and when I saw the tackle box I  knew I could convert it over to a girlie train case full of candy necklaces, bracelets,  nail polish and more. 
The first train case is geared more toward very young girls while the second one is for a Tween girlie girl.

I used DCWV Preppy Princess Stack 

 I used MME Cut & Paste ~ Flair Paper
I always have fun creating these projects and I hope you find  some inspiration in them. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have an amazing weekend.
