House Mouse Challenge #13


Hello again!!! I know, I know, it's been a little bit since I last posted. You know how life is, it like's to get in the way of what you really want to be doing. Oh well, I'm back now. So this weeks challenge on House Mouse was to use "junk". It sounds easier than it was. I thought "junk, what the heck kinda junk am I going to use." So I was talking to my mom, and kicking around ideas, but nothing really seemed to interest me, so I thought I would skip this week. Then I was cleaning my room and found all kinds of junk to throw away. I came across this cookie tin, and thought it might turn out cute. This is the first time I've done anything like this. I keep seeing all these other things that everybody alters and always think that they are so cute, but probably harder than I want to deal with, so I've never done it. Well, I finally did and I LOVE the way it turned out. I bought this stamp from someone on SCS and LOVE it too. My daughter Ashlee, loves to snowboard so when I saw this it totally reminded me of her. So this is for her to collect her money to buy her snowboarding things that she wants. Anyway, thanks for looking and hope you enjoy it. Let me know what you think, I love hearing all of your comments.
