All moved

So the move went great! Now I just have a gazillion boxes to get through and no time to create! I didn't win for the Pink Cat studio August guest designer submission, but I'm so proud of myself for actuall entering(usually I chicken out in the end!)! I thought since I can't make anything new, I'd share my submission.

I made Billy and Lily a dress-up playroom out of a DVD tin. Everything is done on cardstock on top of a sticky magnet sheet. The images were stamped in brilliance ink and then colored in with copic markers. Here's the DVD tin closed with everything inside:

This is how it looks when it's opened up: Here's Billy and Lily in a couple of different outfits:

The dress-up box is made from a mini Altoids tin covered with printed paper:

The Window was cut with nestabilities and a clear piece of acetate was placed behind and then the 'outdoors' were stamped and colored with copics. The curtain rod and shelves are a strip of the self adhesive magnet:

I guess now I can let the girls play with it! They've been itching to get their little fingers on it! Gotta go, I hear the boxes calling my name!

You should of won and it is a shame you didn't for all that hard work. Amazing. The details, the imagination all of it just superb.
