Catch up on Linda and Rosies challenges

At last I am able to show you my altered match box AND altered tin which I finally completed for the 1st and 3rd challenge over on Linda n Rosie's fabulous blog see over HERE

The saying above is a stamp that I had made by Tanda Stamps see side bar... for direct link.
Tell me a girl who has enough shoes :))

Now for the altered tin... Below is a piece of Cosmo Cricket Paper which I cut to size for the bean tin but before sticking it to the tin I altered the paper to complement my image.... using chocolate ink I dabbed it all over the paper and loved the result, next I added the ribbons, image and sentiment.... one altered tin which I intend to use as a money box when I purchase a plastic replaceable lid and cutting a slit in the top to feed the money in.... to buy more rofpmsl

P.S. the top is not dented I think I cropped a little too close. LOL

Would like to say thankx for the birthday wishes for both Nathan and myself....I had a fabulous day with family and then an afternoon through 'till midnight crafting with Chris.

What more could a girl need.. XX
Thanx for the challenges.
Wishing you all a good weekend.
Thanks for looking
Chriss x
