Friends are the Flowers of Life - Tiddly Inks Blog Hop


When I saw the announcement about the Tiddly Inks blog hop, I just had to play along.  I've been loving these suitcases made with my Ultimate tool and boxer board.  I thought Aida would be perfect for the suitcase.  I added distress ink around the edges, which I don't usually do, but I love the effect here.


Here's the inside.  This paper with old newspapers on it was perfect.  I had it in my stash.

I'd like to enter this project in the following challenges:
1. Polkadoodles #2 - vintage/retro
2. Stampin for the Weekend - out with the old - everything I used is at least several months old. I'm on a buying hiatus so I'm all about stash.

Here are the products I used for my project:




Happy Crafting!

Ada is perfect for this project, so awesome. I have seen these boxes, but never remember them when I sit down to craft. Love how they look, must make one. Gorgeous job. The text inside is glorious. The red echo'd in the dress and flowers is stunning with the red handle.


Thanks for hopping along with us at Tiddly Inks!
