This just proves it! If I don't post in the morning I totally forget. I was sitting there last night and thought...crud...I forgot to post! You see...Sunday morning we decided to wake the kids early and go get breakfast at Perkins before church. This require me to get up, shower, and dress right away instead of coming here and posting before getting on with my day. So, post but breakfast was good! project for you guys today. Do you remember THIS post? Well, I got THESE tins from PaperTrey Ink when they were released last month and I spent a little time covering them and getting them ready for the boys. It was much easier than I had anticipated as Sharon has instruction on how to cut the paper for the top window. Once again I used my paper from the Target $ spot. I colored the images that Bela gave me with my COPIC markers, cut them out and placed them on the tins. I added some flocking on the frog's boxers but no glitter or anything like that as they are boys ya know! The images are kind of 3-d though as I used dimensionals on part of the image. Like the lion's head is popped up from the tin. I think the striped (is it two "p"'s or one?) tin may be too girlie but I didn't have any other boyish Valentine paper so I had to make do.

So...lets have a little Glory from Lorie. Think you can guess correctly which tin is for which of my boys? From the correct guesses I'll choose a winner for a card with a surprise from me! Remember you have to have all three correct in order to go into the drawing.

Also, a random note just so you all know. I think I'm going to start sizing my pictures a little bit smaller. It will save a little room on my computer and on my blogger account. You can always click on them to make them larger.

I hope you all had a great weekend! Make today a great day!

*The spell check still isn't working so forgive my mistakes.*
