Boxing week at Try it on Tuesday

Good morning everyone.
Glorious sunshine in my neck of the woods so I hope it's the same where you are.
Over at Try it on Tuesday it's altered box week, sponsored by The Craft Barn, so hope you can join us for it.
Here is my box in a bit more detail
 I painted a plain paper mache heart box pinky red and stamped in sepia over it. I coloured some lace ribbon with dusty concord distress ink and attached to the side of the lid and the base of the box with double sided tape. The flower was made following the tutorial HERE and sprayed with purple ink to darken.
I glued some book pages to card and die cut the butterflies before colouring with the dusty concord distress ink and some purple stickles.
Do pop on over to see my teamies brilliant boxes too. Have a brilliant day, I'm back to the studio to finish my grungy Monday entry so I'll see you later peeps........

Hi Neil,
I was chosen to be a guest designer at Try It On Tuesday, I have sent an email and also left a comment on the blog, but haven't heard anything yet. What do I do now?
