I tried something new!

I was watching Mary at Cardz TV and she was making a little photo gift out of an Altoids tin, so I tried to make one. I really wasn't feeling great so I did very little decorating, but it was fun. Totally out of my comfort zone for sure. Anyway I thought I would share it with you all. It's very simple, you guys could do much better, so try one! It makes a cute tuck in gift for any occasion. This one is for a friend to say thanks, and thinking of you.    Well here it is.

Try this sometime, all the pages fold into the tin. Then you add pictures and text on the pages, the pages are done on both sides so you get 12 photo mats or 6 photo and 6 journal pages.  Cute idea huh!

 I also want to thank everyone that follows my blog, you are all so special to me.

Hugs, Pam
