FAIRY FUN FRIDAYS #34 & PRAIRIE FAIRY BLOG HOP digital release party! :-D

Hi there and welcome to another challenge over at the Fairy Fun Fridays challenge blog! :-)
I welcome you all to join in the PRAIRIE FAIRY BLOG HOP, too - a blog hop to celebrate the launch of many new beautiful digi images; - digital stamps designed by Prairie Fairy's very own and oh so talented Fairy Queen, Roberta Laliberté! :-) 

You can read more about the blog hop at the end of this blog post! I'm offering candy for the blog post and some of my fellow DT members are, too - so, be sure to don't miss this event! :-)

  Here's my DT project for the week #34 challenge with the theme PEARLS AND LACE:

I've spent hours, making this "oriental style" box, made with 4 of the very beautiful and brand new digi stamps from the Japanese Collection set of Prairie Fairy stamps.  I've used the following images: "The Geisha", "Cherry Blossoms", "Japanese Lanterns" and "Green Tea".
(The Japanese set counts 5 stamps. There's also a beautiful "Japanese Fan" stamp.)

The theme this week is like I already mentioned, PEARLS & LACE. I've used paper lace from Panduro and pearls from Kaisercraft. - Pearls as flower center and on the small butterflies.
All 4 images are coloured with ProMarkers.
This is actually an empty chocolate box that I've decorated.
The lock on the lid, is a magnet snap lock.
The lid opens and ..... tadaaa! 
Sentiment is a Japanese saying. In English it goes something like this: "Arts and skills are a tree that provide fruit". I hope that is an okay translation... 
I used Tim Holtz' Hitch Fasteners and turned the box into one that "stands on its own 4 feet".
The pearl decoration on the lock is from Prima ("Siip Center Brown").
"Bottoms up". My personalized stamp. "Handmade..."
This image is so very beautiful! I fell for it right away, I think it was "love at first sight"! LOL 
I did a geisha with less make-up... and paper pieced her outfit.
All papers from Basic Grey and their "Blush" collection...
Here are some close-up photos, of the other 3 images used:
I hope you like this! I was very happy when I finished this project...! It was such a pleasure working with these adorable and so very beautiful Japanese themed images! 
I feel so lucky to be working for Roberta, such a talented artist in creating digi stamps! And I feel so very lucky to be part of the Prairy Fairy design team with so many talented ladies!! :-)
I would like to enter my oriental style box project into the following challenges, btw:

(Her er perler og blomster nok, vil jeg tro!)
(Pearls and Lace is perfect - that is the theme for this DT card and this week's FFF challenge! I hope this is cute and girly enough, too!..)
(Dette splitter nye, nydelige Prairie Fairy "The Geisha" digitale stempelet er nok mitt favorittstempel akkurat nå. Det var "love at first sight" - jeg falt for det med en gang jeg så det første gang!) 
(Here's paper lace and flower ribbon).
(I've used 4 digi stamps).
(The green butterflies inside the box and the flower ribbon is made of fabric).

Wowee! I'm amazed and thrilled that my project matched so many challenges!
