This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Altered "Explore" Box - BoBunny/ Berry71Bleu August Challenge

Hello Everyone

I am up on the Berry71Bleu blog today for the August Challenge.

The mood board is gorgeous - "Summer Hideaway" challenge.

I created something a little altered "Explore" Box.
This is sort of a "man" box that can be used to store little treasures...whatever he likes.
So a little bit of a man hideaway too! ;-)

Please pop over to the Berry71Bleu blog for more details and photo's.
