Good Friday to you my wonderful friends!  Are you all ready for the weekend?  Well, I am, and I'm hoping it'll be a wonderful weekend for us all!!!

This little box did not come out at all as I expected it to; the cut.file did but I didn't have a clue how I was going to embellish and decorate it.  I knew what I was going to use it for and kind of just went with the flow.  I don't think I'm totally disappointed but I am still trying to figure out just what I think of it.  Anyway, I'm going to call it a "side-by-side girly box".  I filled this one with a few girly things; however, you can decorate and use yours any way and/or to hold anything you'd like.  The cut.file can be found at the end of this post.
This box will be my second submission to the Wednesday challenge over at Cricutters Anonomous, formerly known as Just Buggin'.  I think I'm going to have to find more challenges to participate in because  I'm enjoying doing it and it makes me think.  Although I'm not too pleased with the outcome, I'm entering it because that's what I designed it for.  Next time I'll just give more thought to my project before just rushing in to complete it.

I used the George cart for the box and the Forever Young cart for the perfume bottle and the sunglasses.  The box is cut on a sheet of 12'' x 12' paper, it is a one-piece single cut, and the paper I used is from the DCWC Luxury Stack.  I love the satin look of this paper, and thought it was very feminine for this box with the lace and beads.

Because I haven't made up my mind about this box, please give me your honest opinion.  I trust you guys!  IAnd, if you use the cut file, I'd really like to see what you did with it, okay?  Thanks! 

I think this box has so many possibilities.

Hugs, and I'll be seeing you!

Thank you all for your kind and warm comments. I think I'm feeling better about the box, but still have mixed feelings. You have helped though, very much so!

I do not see anything wrong but too much beauty, lol. Did you use chipboard for a sturdy base and then covered it w/the pp? This is too nice. Hey, I read they will showcase this one on craftcrave again. congrats!
