About me ~ Mini album for Clare


I have a few of these Maya Road tin box and not sure what I can do with it until I saw this lovely creation from Lauren Bergold, hey, my Clare is going to collage soon, why don't I make this mini album in the tin box for her to take to school! : ) And when she misses her mummy (????) she can have a little piece of mummy's work of heart with her : )

before.....



and after......


I am linking this altered tin box with
this week's challenge is altering any kind of box



and in this tin box, is a mini album ABOUT CLARE






the empty "round" is to let her write or paste anything she likes
and the photo on the left is Clare and her sister Dolce driving a buggy at Steve's farm




here's another empty page for her to jot down her 10 favorite collection, boy, I am not sure if she is going to list her book, poster, or music, or vinyl......



that is the back of the mini book


boy.... I miss her already.... sob sob....

Gorgeous album Kirsty, Clare will cherish this tremendously, so please don't feel too upset? (although I do understand of course). It's a wonderful keepsake!

No just kidding!
This tin; I know for sure she will love it. A brilliant idea and the result is stunning. I love the idea of adding space for small notes and a top 10,
