Delightful Challenge Thursday – Celebrate! Our Last Ever Challenge :(

Hi all! Hope you are well and happy! Seven more sleeps to Christmas! That can't be right surely!

Well this will be my final post of the year and it is a sad one as it is also the last ever challenge over at the Delightful Challenge Blog! L Wendy has decided to close the challenge to devote more time to Digital Delights by Louby Loo designs! However Digital Delights by Louby Loo will NOT be going anywhere and will carry on bringing exciting daily posts and super cute designs! All the team would like to thank everyone for supporting us in our weekly challenges and hope that you will continue to find inspiration on the Digital Delights Blog where you may see some posts from me from time to time! Wink! Wink!

Anyway onto our last ever theme and it is Celebrate! So interpret that any way you wish!
 My interpretation was to make an exploding box! Now I haven't made one of these for years!! I used to make them quite a lot but I was so out of practice I made three lids before I got one to fit!! 
I decided to celebrate a birthday so used the gorgeous Celebration Charlie to sit in the middle with his balloons! Party on dude!!!
Dies: Sizzix ‘Stars Framelits’ – Tonic ‘Nesting Ovals – La La Land ‘Flag Banner’
Paper/Card: Neenah Solar White - Papermania Capsule Collection ‘Pastel Spots & Stripes’ – Kraft – Centura Pearl
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir markers & pencils
Others: Gems – acrylic dewdrops

So celebrate good times come on and dance over to the Delightful Challenges Blog to see the amazing inspiration created by the DT and don't forget to visit the shop for Wendy’s gorgeous digis!

Thanks so much for looking, and I would like to wish everyone a spectacularly wonderful Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year!

See ya in 2015!
