Phew - FINALLY finished the exploding box for J&C's 40th Wedding Anniversary

Well this has taken for EVER - weeks on my work table and cost in the region of £45......so not cheap, but I am pleased with the final result - still think it's a bit big but it holds 40 photo's altogether and the white and the red roses represent Christines Wedding Dress. I hope they like it - I think they will. The 8 CD's cover 60's, 70's, 80's & 90's music. Disappointed that unlike all my other exploding boxes - this one, doesn't explode open as the CD's flat bottom stands up IYKWIM - I should have left a cm space at the bottom and then it may have 'fell open' - but all in all - it's OK.
