Exploding Box Mother's Day Album

Thank you thank you thank you, Helen! I needed something to help me finish off my Exploding Box album for mum for Mother's Day, and your flowers were "it"! The box has been sitting on my shelf nearly finished for a week, just missing that certain something and the title - and tonight it all came together with a little inspiration from your blog.
The words in the centre (around the flower) say "Nana's Treasures". I love the soft colours here. I have used Honeydew, cloud and butter cardstock, with papers from the Creative Memories Baby Boy Soft pack, long deleted unfortunately.

I featured only Nana's grandsons in the box, because I have made a little cascading album that shows off Emma all to herself. Soft pinks and lovely girly baby colours of course! More on that when it has been finished off too.
I am entering the box in the challenge at One Stop Craft Challenge this week - anything but a card - and also the Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge, which is Mother's Day.


  1. What a beautiful box Jo! Nana will certainly be thrilled with this wonderful project!
    Thanks so much for joining in again with our Challenge at OSCC this week!

  3. Jo Another stunning project, your Mum will love it. I glad I could help with the flower, they are very cool to make. Samuel often helps me make them as he likes scrunching up the paper.

  4. Gorgeous box Jo, lovely papers too. Thanks for joining us at the OSCC this week. luv gina xx
