Shabby Chic/Vintage Suitcase

Hi everyone, just thought I would quickly share with you all my vintage slash shabby chic suitcase.  I finally added the finishing touches to this on Saturday afternoon.  This little suitcase is made from some cereal boxes, thick chipboard and the Lyric Collection from Prima Marketing.  OMG guys how beautiful are these papers.  I just love them...I have loved hoarding them and it has been hard to create with them, but now that I have....I can't stop!!

I have created this using Kathy Orta's - The Journey suitcase tutorial which you can purchase over on her blog - Paper Phenomenon.

I have a few before photo's.  I know guys, I am terrible with the process shots....but once I get started I forget to stop and take pics...

 So I go from those pics above to.......

I know it is one huge leap hey? and I still have a few things that I think I will a little dangling charm hanging off the handle.  Here are some close ups on all the yumminess I have on top

And then you open it up annnnnnddddddddd


I have a video up over on youtube, you can find it here
Well guys that is my post for today....I have heaps more to share and I will try to be back again real soon
Thanks so much for looking and please leave a comment, I love to hear what you all think. 
Remember to ...
