Crafting Goodness

This almost catches me up with my Have More Fun Assignments just in time for tomorrow's challenge and Thursday's new project!! All the challenges are optional but I really want to participate because its great to have a prompt and create with a community.

I started the project last night and finished up this morning during my sunrise craft time. I'm certain the scale is going to affirm tomorrow morning that I really should be doing yoga or walking instead of crafting when I wake up early but I've got good mojo in the morning.

This weekend, I have pushed my chair to the side and started to sit on the exercise ball while creating. I figure if I'm going to sit I may as well actively sit!
Here is our week two project. We used an Altoid tin and created a mini book. I decided to work with the pictures from Garrett's 1st Halloween. I decided to paint the insides and edges so it could have a uniform look. I used two sheets of Halloween paper, ribbon and letter rub ons to spell the "Boo". Here is the tin closed.

Here is a view of the tin open.
Here is the dedication to the mini album.
Here is the back of the tin.
Here is the pull out. I went with patterned paper for my B&W pictures.

Here is the other side. Used the solid backing for the colored pictures.

And here is my latest challenge layout, until tomorrow anyway!! The journaling reads "Garrett & Ben to great pals who enjoy walks to the playground even in January! Something made them laugh so hard they had to stop in their tracks happy in 2008."

Off to bed I go!

This Boo Boo tin was a great way to make the MoMints tin your own! I admired it in the BPS gallery! ~april
