Imagine That......

Well, it appears that I am teaching a class! Will wonders never cease. A fabulous new scrapbooking/stamp store has opened up in my area (Chicago suburbs). One of the owners is Simone from a Daily Dose of Spazz.

The store is called Craft Fancy. Tons of scrapbooking supplies, lots of clear stamps which I like and an unbelievable selection of Seven Gypsies, Maya Road and Tim Holtz goodies!
I chose this chipboard box to alter. I'm showing you just the initial stages here, do not think this is the finished product....LOL. But my plan is to make a treasure box which also includes the chipboard album shown below. Something one could use possibly as a travel photo album as well as to hold little treasures collected along the way.
All I know so far is we will be using distress inks and some grungeboard on the outside and probably some Tim Holtz stamps.

WAAAAHHH! I wanna take your class, but you're not very convenient. I'm off to pout. This may be worse than your incredible shopping finds!?!
