And now for my Box. This beautiful box was created using Creative Kuts box file available here. I used patterned paper by DCWV "Ciao Bella" All the edges are inked in TH walnut ink distress ink. I used the "magnolia flower" by CK found here on my box. The bear and mushrooms on the box and inside the album are also from CK "Fairy beautiful girl" found here. The rest of the die cuts are from KandCOmpany "Merryweather" collection.
