It's Pink Saturday again....

Thanks so much to Beverly at How Sweet the Sound. She does such a great job putting this all together. Stop by and check out the other Pinks today - it's fun! First, I have this beautiful rose my husband brought me....



And then, my "Mystery Box". This is a shot of the inside of the lid. I've made it so you can slip photos, or pieces of inspiration for a project under the ribbon. I covered the liner with batting, a layer of fabric and wrapped it with criss-crossed ribbon, then hot-glued it to the inside of the lid. The sweet little embellishments are from K & Co. I've finished the outer lid as well, but I'm not going to show it just yet - I don't want to give too much away yet.



Have a wonderful weekend, and Happy Pink Saturday to everyone.
