last tin for a little while

Well...here it is the tin for my grandpa's wife. Melanie had a really cute idea on her blog to wrap the tin in card stock rather than decorating the top and bottom separately. My first try was a miserable failure. While she uses regular card stock it did not work for me as I think my wrap was a bit tight. Anyway, I decided to use some elements from the SU! SS Kit Summer Day. I did cut my paper the same size as hers but I then scored mine to make it easier for me to put around the tin. I then just added some fun elements and it is all set to go. I am going to get some of that new Bliss candy to put inside of this tin with a little note or poem maybe and off it will go.

How was your creativity this weekend? Get lots done? Let me see! Don't forget about the image swap above I have a second group open so plenty of room for everyone. Have a super fantastic Monday and I'll see ya later!

I live vicariously through you and all the beautiful altered creations and cards you make.

We would have a blast if we lived closer....imagine what we would learn and get accomplished.
Have a fun creative day,
