Hello everyone and welcome to your next stop on the Meljen's Designs Celebration Blog Hop! If you have been following along, you know that we are celebrating our 200th challenge! Isn't that fabby?!
I am so glad you decided to celebrate with us! All of the design team members have created a project with a celebration theme. The best part about this celebration is you get the presents! Each stop along the hop will give you a chance to win the image used on that blog! Just make sure to leave a comment and an email so you can be contacted if you are the winner. Believe me, there is nothing worse than not being able to contact a winner! And as always, there is always the chance to win three images if you enter our challenge which of course has a celebration theme this week. =)
You should have come here from Nancy's
blog. Isn't her project wonderful? I definitely think it is time to celebrate spring at this point in the winter! If you just popped by and would like to start from the beginning, or if you have gotten lost along the way, just click the blog hop banner above to go back to the challenge blog.
For my project today I spruced up an old cigar tin that my husband gave me after emptying it. I plan to use it as a gift card holder in the future. I am not sure how I feel about cigars, but I end up with a lot of great boxes and tins to have fun with!
I really liked that the tin was gold. Usually the tins are silver. But those crazy pirates had to go!!
I used Little Bird's Song
and colored it with Copics. I nearly had a panic attack when I realized that I had put all of the elements on the lid upside down! The box opened the wrong way! Luckily, I was able to remove everything and fix it. Those darn pirates were playing tricks on me.
The inside of the lid had the same picture as the cover so those pirates had to go too!
I left the sentiment oval blank because I am not sure what occasion this tin will be used for. I will add the appropriate sentiment later.
Okay! Now it is time for you to hop on to the next blog for even more tasty inspiration! Next up on the blog tour is Robbie
and I just know she has something wonderful cooked up for you! Before you go, be sure to leave me a comment and include your email address. You just might win your very own copy of Little Bird's Song! All of the winners will be announced on Monday, March 17th.
