Earth fills her lap with Pleasures of her own

First of all .....Happy Mother's Day everyone. Whether you are a mother, have a mother or just have someone special in your life who acts like a mother, this is your special day! Enjoy. Me, well I'm going to send the entire day watching movies while I play in the crafts studio. It will be a restful day since yesterday my husband and I did the Bluffton Village Festival with my collage art and his Classic Wrecks. We spent last week working hard designing our booth, making art and  figuring out all the logistics. It was a gorgeous day and we met all sorts of fun and interesting people! Photos later this week..

Todays project is an altered chai tea box using beautiful bookmark images from Gecko Galz and potpourri! Yes I took the pretty dried leaves and branches right out of my china bowl. LOL! Frilly and Funkie is sponsoring an "Alter It" challenge so,  I'll enter it there too. I also am including some photos of The landscape that I promised I would show you from our historic house and gardens tour. You can see how  the lowcountry landscape here is so inspiring.

Well, the box was really simple to make by first covering it with vintage music paper. The potpourri and the images came next. A different image  on each side. Of course there is hand cut text and Stickles accents too. The top and feet are acorn tops that I picked up. The text in the top acorns says "Glory to the Earth".

Hope your week will be filled with earthly pleasures.
take care, gerri
