Dear LISA  from Tarnished and Tattered

A wonderfull artist, and very dear friend of mine,
offered us to be a part of her  :Outside the box -challenge,
and I made mine many weeks ago, to be in good time,----only to forget to post
my box today, mainly because my grandchildren takes all my energi for the
moment being.

BUT thanks to JULIA,
my also special,and dear,dear friend I am here, to show you my box.

I went totally romantic, and placed a balletdancer inside the box,
filled it with flowers, and papers,
and made her dance there.

The outside is covered with the copy of a beautifull rosecard,
Lisa once gifted me with, and which colors exatly goes with the ones
chosen here.( sorry you can not see it)

Thanks so very much Lisa, for this great and wonderfull invitation, I enjoyed
making this sweet little box ,very much.
And thanks so much dearest Julia, for making me remember ,today

Love and hugs, to both of you lovely wemen.

I better catch an eye on the two very active persons,that brightens
my dayes,  this week, and makes me forget everything else !!

Hi Dorthe!

Wow your box is gorgeous and so full of detail! Especially with the sweet addition of the card from Lisa, it really made your box so special!

And, leave it up to sweet Julia to keep us all on our toes :)))

Enjoy your time with the grands Dorthe and I just love your beautiful box :)

Wow!! That is so beautiful! I think that is exactly what every girl saw with her jewelry box with the plastic ballerina that popped up and danced. This is EXACTLY how we saw it in our imaginations! At least I did.:)

Lisa said...

Dorthe my sweet friend!
I love your box, & I'm so honored that you used a copy of the card I gave you. What a special touch! I had to zoom in on the box to see the dancers sweet face. I love the movement in your piece. The flowers, the cheesecloth the lace, it all seems to be dancing like the girl.
I admire how organized you are getting it done so long ago. I on the other hand finished mine up around 11 last night. LOL My weekend was wonderful, really a dream come true. The best part was meeting & creating with so many artists I've blogged with for so long.
Thank you for playing my game & always supporting my work. It means the world to me. One day I hope to create in person with you & Julia!

Your soap box is very beautiful. I think how you placed the ballerina, coming up through the opening is brilliant, as though she is rising through the stage for a performance.
Just lovely.

BellaRosa said...

Dorthe amor, I have to tell you how much I love your beautiful lil boxI When I look at it...all I think is that it is full of Spring, Summer, a walk in a beautiful garden, memories of a lil girl opening her favorite jewelery box to see the beautiful ballerina twirl, then standing up her self, to spin & twirl to her hearts content....sorry, see how much it affected me :) Beautiful amor, just like you...I love seeing your beautiful creations, they always make me smile and they usually bring for some special and sometimes forgotten memory from my mind and heart :) Besos, Rose

ps...I also wanted to let you know how much all your wonder comments of love and support for my family & I have meant to us all :)Thank you so much from my heart!
