Pearls for Girls at Try it on Tuesday

Hello, I'm back after a wonderful holiday and I must say Thank You to all of those who took the time to leave lovely comments on the scheduled posts while I was away, I really appreciate it.

Anyhow, it's time to try and get back to normal, although I must admit inspiration is a bit lacking at the moment, so it's just as well I was organised for this 'Pearls for Girls' challenge at Try it on Tuesday  before I went away.
This little box was originally cream before applying a coat of Snowflake Fresco paint and then Distress sprays in Milled Lavender, Victorian Velvet, Antique Linen and Forever Violet Perfect Pearls (it's not quite as light as in the photo).  The roses were also sprayed before highlighting with Enchanted Gold Gilding Wax.
The rest of the team have some wonderful makes to show, so why don't you pop over to the main blog, you won't be disappointed
  I am entering this at:

That's it for now, the last of the ironing is beckoning  and then hopefully some time to organise the numerous pictures we took and hopefully some might be good enough to share.

After a holiday I'm not lacking mojo, the trouble is there are too many ideas in my head and they all try to come out at the same time, which in general just leaves a mess.
Your box is ultra feminine and beautiful!
