Tsunami Rose Challenge "Altered Item"

Hello everyone..

Its wednesday.. and that means its time for the new challenge over on 

The theme for this weeks challenge is:
"Altered Item"

Altered items are not my strong point but I decided to give it a go anyway. 
This is the box before:

We the DT, are all using the "Parisian Dreams" journal kit this month. Its a lovely printable journal/kit that comes with everything you need to create stunning projects. 
You can find it in the store HERE

And this is the box after:

I know i say this with every project I make with Tsunami Rose designs, but I find that I need to add very little to make my projects.
For this box, all I used besides the box, was white paint and a varnish. The rest is simply just using the kit. Cut some of the element out and layered up.
I purposely decided to keep the decorations on the top of the box flat. I wanted a box that can easily be used, even by my daughter. (she has already claimed the box lol)

And that it is from me for today. I hope you like what Ive made.
Thank you for stopping by, and for any comments left behind.
