My Chocky box for Mum

Howdy Peeps,
I hope you are all fine and dandy.
What a weekend, yesterday it was 4 years since my Dad passed away. We did have a nice day remembering Dad and all his" funny's". The kids and I went out to Pinnaroo (Dad's resting place) and had a great walk around the grounds and after checking out the Roos we went to the shops for lunch and a bit of a walk around.
Then it was back home to pack the boys a bag cause they had a sleepover birthday party. Leigh-Anne and I went to play bingo, unfortunately we aren't millionaires , maybe next time
Our spare room has finally had all the tradesmen visit and is now ready for a splash of paint, it has only taken them 9 months since the flood but no need to rush I guess.
Today we had a very quiet day as you could imagine the twins didn't get much sleep and have been very sleepy today so guess who got to finish a project. It's my Mum's Mothers Day present so sssshhhhhhh it's a secret. I'm also entering this is the challenge over at the Allsorts challenge where you have to have sentiments on your project. I'm not sure if all my sentiments qualify but thought I would give it a go anyways.
The chocolate box is by Dusty Attic and so are all the wonderful sentiments. The paper stock and flowers are all from my stash. The bling by Kaisercraft and the butterflies are made using my fav. EK Success punch and the paper was a pearlized envelope which I pulled apart. I have also used a Tim Holtz distress ink to give it a few highlights.
This was so much fun to do I may go and order another one just for me!
Thank you all so much for popping by, I have started another project for my friends 40th birthday which is fast approaching so I hope to post that in the next few days.
Take care
