I will confess that I didnt even start my project till Monday morning. And still didnt have an idea what or where the craft project would take me. So... I work better under pressure which is the current song playing.  

I did get my project done. I made an altered tin. This tin which I should have taken photos before and didnt, as just a tin that had chap stick in it from Christmas time. It was light blue with red. The first thing I did was spray painted it black. Then I took some crochet thread and wrapped it around the bottom part of the tin up to where the lid hit when its on. Then I did the same to the lid around the the top. 
The top of the lid I did a sunburst arrangement. The paper is from a stack I found at Walmart. I then added and burlap flower also found at Walmart and a prima flower- that I received from a friend. 

I plan to use this tin for my We R Memory Keepers Fuse tips. 


I hope you enjoyed my project. 
Unto your next stop.

Just To pass the time

The other day after my girls went to school I looked up a digi stamp that I used to get well digi stamps from. They did monthly challenges. Well I knew that the store closed down and changed their name but I lost track and forgot all about it till this week. That company is From The Heart Stamps. I purchased this months digi stamp to take the challenge. Here is what I made.
