Tomic challenge #12 recycle

Its a special challenge this week as Magnolia ink is also celbrating its birthday and the team were all challenged to "recycle."  I had forgotten all about this event when i recieved an email reminding me on Saturday evening.  I scurried around like a chicken without a head, my first thought was to do a Jam jar that i have had on hold to alter, but Murphy's law i couldnt find it as i have already packed up half my stash in the studio for the great move.

I was lucky however to stumble upon this treasure chest that i have a few of and decided that it would be great filled with bon bons for a friends brithday next month.
The girls on the Tomic Team have done a fabulous job altering all sorts, so do come and play this week as there is loads of inspiration.
Paper:  Magnolia: something old something new
Stamps:  Travelling Tilda, suitcase with sign, and many miscellaneaous from my stash
Embellishments:  Lock and key from stash
Flowers: WOC
all the bits and bobs from my stash too, and the lace is really old dont remember where it came from
Inks and coloring medium:  copics, memento rich cocoa and vintage photo

have a great week
