Birthday Treasury Swap


I recently participated in a really fun swap
hosted by Amy from Inspire Co.

The theme was Birthday Treasury.


 We were to choose one of the Tim Holtz
Configurations sets and create a birthday
themed shadowbox for our partner.


The set is made from a heavy chipboard and
you can move the little boxes inside to
create different configurations. They're really fun!


My partner was Cassandra from An Artful Adventure,
and this is the shadowbox I created for her.


I painted the whole set in a soft white, added
a cute plaid paper around the outside and a
few sweet patterns in the backs of the little sections.



Finding and creating the little treasures was so much fun!



This is the beautiful shadowbox Cassandra created for me.


She painted it the most beautiful soft blue, and
painted the little sections in blue, white, and pink.
Then she sparkled everything so pretty.

And she added the sweetest little treasures!


I love the little cake and stand that she created with buttons!


And check out the feet she added, using
vintage spools of thread. I love it!


Thank you Cassandra for swapping with me,
and for creating the sugary-sweetest shadowbox!

Debi, these are beautiful! I also participated in the swap and had to do a bit of improvising... I just adore that cake stand made with buttons; such a clever idea! :)
