Today is Pink Saturday.........

.....hosted by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound. Take a few minutes to enjoy some of the beautiful blogs all posting about pink today!

My pink this week is my "Mystery Box". It's almost done and I will be able to show you the inside next week. I've used a mixture of papers, cut out vintage images, flowers, vintage lace trim, buttons, and bling to finish off the top. The center flower is made from a scrap of fabric, gathered with a layer of gathered tulle on top, and a Prima flower with a gemstone brad center by Recollections from Michael's.
I can't wait to show you what's inside, but that will have to wait for next week. This was a lot of fun, and a bit challenging, but well worth it. Sorry this picture turned out so dark - I just didn't have time to play around with it.



I've had a couple of people ask me for more information about the Serendipity technique I used on the card in the post below this one and one I did the other day, so I will do a post on that in a day or so.

Have a wonderful weekend, and Happy Pink Saturday!!

Hi Dru, It's really nice meeting you. Your blog is beautiful and your mystery box is gorgeous. Thanks for your visit. Happy Pink Saturday and Mother's Day! ♥

How absolutely wonderful! Beverly sure knew what she was doing when she created a place for all of us "pinkies" to congregate and share our "pinkness".

Happy Mother's Day to you. I hope you find yourself surrounded by those you love, good food, and a gentle peace in your ♥. We don't need to be a mother to know a mother's life. After all we all started out with a mom, didn't we?☺

Love this box, and I can't wait to see (a) the finished box (in a closeup) and (b) what you hid inside it! (Enquiring minds....) Happy Pink Saturday!
