Sea Shore Box For Tilda

Hi everyone, I thought I would enter this project in the Midweek Magnolia challenge, which is Anything but a Card.

Wow I had to put my thinking hat on.
So I decided to make this box. I had no template or pattern so made it up as I went along. I used my score board and just started measuring and I came up with this box. I put the ribbon on as a way to close the box.

I used this Tilda image and the Sea Shore as my theme. It was fun to put together.
For my Tilda I used Copic pens, E11, E00 & R81 for her face. E39, E43 & E79 for her hair. B34, R83 & R85 for her dress, bows & hat. B00 & B21 for water. 
CS is from SU, ribbon from my stash and Sea Shore stickers from K&Company.

Our weather here in NW Oregon has been cool inbetween warm days. Really odd weather patterns.

I am not feeling my best, always tired.  I know the surgery results, will help me be more like myself. I look fwd to being cancer free.

I make a lot of cards and I also quilt. As a widow, I still have a hard time being alone so much. John has been gone now for 2 1/2 yrs. Still seems just like yesterday he was still with us.

Many thanks to all who come by and say hello. Have a super fun and great weekend.
Blessings to all
