Colour Inspiration # 26 (#8 if you're me!)

I started this project for my
daughter...shhhh it'll be part of
her stocking stuffers although
I doubt it will fit in her stocking.

It's an altered tin using this week's Colour Inspiration colours...
The idea is that this will be
a blessing box where she can
store memories of blessings,
papers with hopes that's she's praying for, etc.

I'm not sure if I'm quite done with the
tin yet, but I am out of time
for this colour inspiration, so I'm
taking a break from this project,
but will likely come back to it:)

I'm hoping to make a little mini album
inside too to remind her about
some of the blessings that are hers:)

This looks brillant!
Also I think it is one of the first (if not the first) altered art project that I have seen entered into one of Kristinas challenges.
I love it, it's sure to make the round up.

Ca-ute! But you are right, I don't think it will fit in her stocking, best to give it to her now! lol

Very cute, I love it. I might have to do that for my kids for christmas also. Good idea.
