Tap away -- featuring Bella Blvd. and Basic Grey :)

Hi everyone! 

Our latest challenge is live at LESSology and I wanted to share my take on it! This month we are all about Fluttering Butterflies!! Incorporate butterflies on your upcycled projects! :) 

A few years ago, my BFF sent me a boxed perfume set -- and the box was beautiful, so I kept it :) 

Brookie took tap dance a couple of years ago, and I kept her tap shoes from the class :)

So I took the lid from the perfume boxed set and her shoes and created a shadow box to remember her first dance class! 

Here is what I started with --

Inside the lid of the box --



And the outside of the lid and her shoes --




And here is what I created with them --


I used Bella Blvd.'s Scattered Sprinkles for the butterflies and the flowers are from Basic Grey :)











Can't wait to see what you create for this challenge :)
