My Pink Challenge part 1.
















Haven't done much crafting today as In-laws have been down for the day. Just made myself a cuppa and ventured out in the conservatory to put together the first part of my altered tin. I struggled a bit with this because as you can see from the piccies, the tin is buckled at the back. The ribbon covers most of it, but trying to cut the paper to fit inside the bottom of the tin was a nightmare.
Anyway, I have decorated the tin itself but I decided to make this for ME!!!! Something to remind me how lucky I am when it seems every way I turn I am hitting my head against that brick wall. It is so easy to be burdened down with all the negatives, I don't mean that to sound harsh, but basically that is what it is like when you are constantly working with, dealing with and encouraging a child with a disability- after all I am working on her areas of weakness all the time!!

I chose this little tin to fill with reminders of all the strengths I have that surround me, that often get taken for granted or overlooked. So far I have made up a little concertinaed card that fits snuggly inside and ties with that gorgeous polka dot ribbon...the rest is yet to come!!
Sorry some of pics aren't great, light fading on yet another very dull, wet day.
