Box It Up Pinworthies!

Julia here today to announce the Creative Guide's Pinworthy choices for last month's challenge, Box It Up.  It is always difficult to narrow down the field to just three entries.  We greatly appreciate all of you taking time to join in our challenges with us.

Without further ado, here are our three Pinworthy Mentions for the Box It Up Challenge.

We loved her music theme with the transformed violin and the musical notes mounted on little boxes inside the bigger box frame.  Lovely distress and crackle throughout.

#4  Glenda
Such a clever and beautiful design with her box inside her card.  The papers she used are beautiful as well as her layered flowers, lace and pearls.  A lovely shabby vintage look here.

#7  Marty
What a wonderful little village for Halloween with the 3 box houses each attended by it's resident witch standing outside - 2 of the houses being shakers (so fun!).  The surrounding fence and leaf bare trees add to the spookiness of this creative decoration.


I will be sending you your Pinworthy badge to display on your blogs shortly and we will be pinning your fabulous entries to the A Vintage Journey Pinworthies board on Pinterest.

There is still plenty of time to enter our current challenge which is Inky Wings and you can find all the details HERE along with some fabulous inspiration from the Creative Guides.

As always thank you for joining us in our challenge and we look forward to seeing what you create this month!
