Whew, LOTS of ways to win today!! Now back to my project!

I used a cute little lunch tin from the Target $1 spot that's been in my stash of alterables for a couple of years, hehe. I covered the tin with papers from the "Learning Curve" paper line from Bo Bunny, then colored Janice to match. She was the distressed along with all the elements with Tim Holtz "Old Paper" ink.

Of course the top is done up with lots of fun ribbons from my stash...its a good way to use up scraps! I added the word "Change" to the back of the little tin and thought I would give it to one of my daughters to keep their change in in their backpack. They both admitted the other day that when they were young they used to just throw it away! Aaaaacckkk! Now they are 14 and 15 and know the value of scrounging up dimes and nickels for a soda at school, LOL. (And don't ask who gets this....its whoever reads moms' post on facebook then does the dishes tomorrow!)

OK, now on to the rest of the hop! From here head over to the talented lady Kimme to see what she has cooked up for you today! Thanks for hopping by my corner of cyber space today! Have a great weekend!
