Since I’m in LOVE with this photo of Amber I decided to encapsulate it forever! LOL!

I was thrilled with how this turned out! It was the first thing I did with my Paper Trey set, I just forgot to upload it!

I chose to use Basic Grey Fare Thee Well pattern from Scarlett’s Letter collection. Its got hue’s of gray, black & white.

I used  large clear hing tins-and cut Amber’s photo to size. Adhered it into the tin. I then lined the inner edge inside the tin so it looks complete in there! I also covered the bottom and back of tin with the same pattern. The lip of the top the tin is covered with May Arts black velvet ribbon, for interest, and texture.

The lid is stamped using black StazOn and the leaf image form the Paper Trey Ink set-Beautiful Blooms.

I then cuttlebugged (Flowers #1die set) some glittered black felt (got that at Michaels) and then stamped/punched the flowers. I wrapped some dark gray polka dot ribbon around the box, and strung it through the hodge podge piece. I has the perfect little pin set from Making Memories, and stamped the “girl” sentiment on the tiny tag!

I will cherish this forever! Isnt she so sweet! I am really enjoying this age with her. She is in her torturous three’s but SO CUTE! I can hardly stand it.

Well I hope this gives you some new uses for those clear top tins! Now I need to make 2 more! That way Noah & Alexa dont get upset 😀
