It's a boox!

Hello everyone, here's my latest for a few challenges. It's called a boox because it can't make up its mind whether it's a book or a box ;)
One of the current challenges at Gingersnap Creations is to use your three favourite colours. I chose purple pink and green :)
The main image on the inside, on top of the drawers, follows the Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge. Lol, it's a little hard to see that I've followed the sketch because of the papers I used, but if you enlarge it and follow the spots/stripes along, you can see all the appropriate strips. :)
The Stamptacular Sunday challenge is "Going in circles and lol, I went a bit mad designing my papers and put circles everywhere :P
And there's a brand new challenge blog called Oh Alice!, and their first challenge is "Alice Gets Glam", to be inspired by a picture of a gorgeous Urban Decay Alice-themed make-up set. I may have to explain a bit here, as my piece doesn't actually look much like the picture at all. However, the format/shape is the same (it opens like a book but then has slide-out drawers inside), and the outside is mostly black, but the inside reveals lots of colours.
The image is a digi stamp from Busy Beauties, and she's called Strawberry Lollita (although I've used the non-srtawberry version). I've obviously used her to represent a funky new Alice, and the text on the inner cover is taken from the first chapter of Alice in Wonderland.
