Fun with emulsion and Kaisercraft!

Hello all

Well, the weather's gearing up to give us a fabby, sunny weekend again - hurray! Can't wait to sit out in the garden again.

There has been a little progress in our kitchen, in that hubby set to and did most of the plastering these last couple of days - something he's never tackled before and I think he's done a very good job of it. So the walls which, in places, were dreadful (not to mention all the channels gouged out by the electrician last month) are now looking much better and I think apart from maybe a couple more bits to fill in and the inevitable sanding down, we're then at the stage where we can get the ceiling sorted out (it's textured and we're disposing of the texture!) and then get it all painted - yay! Slow progress it may be, but progress none-the-less.

Anyway, I've had a bit of crafting time this week and so I did a makeover on a nesting set of 3 boxes and a little plain wooden frame. I used white emulsion, some elements from a collection by Kaisercraft called Secret Admirer (you can buy their products from Merly Impressions - link at the bottom of this post), and a few beautiful little flowers from The Ribbon Girl - again, I've put a link at the bottom of this post. Here's a photo of the wooden frame and one of the boxes. I hope you like them.

OK, have a great weekend whatever you're doing and I'll see you all soon.
