Laugh tin, swedish journal and ice


I have had this little metal tin for awhile so decided to alter it today using flowers, buttons, ribbons, grungeboard and a nice little stamp from my Swedish friend Tina. I am going to put photos in it of my mum and dad and their 3 grandsons. Here is a photo of me and my dad taken last year



Tina's journal arrived from Sweden today..she has the theme of black n white and a little red.



Here are the thick handmade paper pages I am going to alter plus a little tag too...so the first thing I am going to do is get rid of that white by scraping black paint on it!!







As you can see from the photos its been very cold here and we have had lots of ice! Keep warm out there and dont forget to put bread out for the birds!
