Pyramid Box

Good crafternoon to all my crafty friends and followers

I hope you are all having a lovely long weekend.  It is raining here in Warrington as it was yesterday!  Where has our summer gone????

Yesterday I went to a stamp group for the first time here in Padgate, they are called the Victoria Stampers and had a fabulous time.  I met lots of lovely new crafty ladies who were a scream!  We had lots of laughter and cake too.  Today I am showing you what we made yesterday.  The lady who took the class Anita Hickson showed us how to make the Pyramid box, she was featured in the Craft Stampers magazine a few years ago with this project.   Anita  is a very talented stamper in her own right.  You can see her fabulous work on her own blog here.
