Very Exciting News!!

As I've probably mentioned before I'm currently living with my sister and our housemate SJ in a student house in Burley in Leeds, well, at the end of the month we all have to move out, my sister is going to Edge Hill in Ormskirk to study Animation and SJ has a top up year for her course and I haven't been a student for two years!

SJ and I were planning on moving in together but while I was looking for somewhere I found the most gorgeous house in Armley which isn't too far from where we are now and it's not too far from work either so it was kind of perfect! The room I have is so much bigger than the one I'm in now because I have an attic room and it's tiny, there's a garden, with grass and plants an everything, we've only got a path and gravel at the moment as we're in back-to-back terraces!

I signed for it this morning and got the keys so now all I have to do is pack everything here, go home to Mum's over the bank holiday next week and pack everything there and then I can move in! I'm so excited! I want to move in now it's so annoying!
I'll update you on that later on, including some pictures. I didn't want to say anything before in case I jinxed it! =)

Anywho, here's a little Exploding Box I made the other day using some of the gorgeous new papers we have at LOTV.




Is was a little fiddly getting the flowers to stay in the right place as the box is only 1.5 inches high when it's closed (not including the flowers) so I just stuck the flowers on, closed it up and stuck the lid on and waited until the flowers had dried!

The cute little bear is from the Summer Bears Companion stamp set from LOTV, the papers are from the 'Bonnets and Bowties' paper pad from NitWits and LOTV, the sentiments are also from LOTV's 'Sentiments Tags' which I raised slightly on foam pads, the flowers are from Wild Orchid and the little pearly bits are from my stash.

I hope you like it! I think I'll have to take it to work to put in the shop because I don't want it to get squished while I move!!

EEEEEEEEE!!!! Can't wait to move!! =D
