Joan’s Gardens Weekly Challenge #9

Hi there everyone,

Today I have created an entry for this weeks Joan’s Gardens challenge.  This challenge is to do the following:

  • Use a recycled box, preferably round
  • Color theme can be your choice
  • Use some Lace
  • Use Pearls and Flowers

I used a container from The Body Shop which I thought was appropriate since they are all about reducing and reusing.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day,

About Castlepark Designs

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
