For Me!


It has been a busy week here. Between Nick's uncles funeral :( . Doctors appointments. Taking the girls to the Ontario Science Centre. (They had an absolute blast!!!!) I am finally glad to be back up here making things. I made a boo boo though :( . I made an altered clipboard and altered lunch tin for my girlfriend Lori's daughter and forgot to take pictures of them before giving them to her. *sighhhhhh* I will have to run down there tonight and take pictures to show you all.
I had bought two lunch tins from Michaels a while back and had never used them yet. I bit the bullet and I am glad I did. I like the way they turned out! I am always making things for others so this time I made myself the second tin. Now the only problem will be as soon as the girls see it after school well ..... I am sure you can all guess what I will be doing in the next few days!!! LOL. I used Stamping Bella's pierrette pointy toes. There is something about this stamp that I love!!!!

This also gave me the opportunity to see if I like the way they turn out as I was thinking of making some as Christmas gifts.

Thank you all for coming and taking a look and leaving your inspiring comments. I hope you are all having a good week!

It came out just beautifully! Aren't they fun? I made one and had the best time. I sent it to someone, but I want to make some to hold my cuttlebug folders and some of my unmounted stamps, like my Bellas or Magnolias. Just way too many possibilities for these babies!
