I forgot !!!

I was at Dress Mart in Onehunga on the weekend, and saw this advertisement that totally cracked me up- How anyone comes up with these ideas totally impresses me!!!
Those are little guppie type fish swimming around in the "tank" classic indeed, even funnier was hearing the parents trying to explain just what it was.... the younger kids were enthralled, the older kids were more horrified!
And this is my tin! aren't you all totally impressed that I actually DID an altered art thingie, this is a Basic Grey Lunch Pail - available now from Spotlight, this tin was made with my neice in mind, so very girly, the title will be put on at some stage but not now, the mini album stuff inside is a total mix up, photos of anything and everythign and I'll do some recipe cards too. If you want to see it up close and personal, it will be on display at Spotlight Manukau from this weekend (and yes as all things look, this is much better in real life!)
Thanks to Zeetra for the encouragement particulary regarding the ribbons- yes, it seems I really can do it!

Wow-that is really pretty. I'm jealous-I don't have anyone to make something that pretty for.

Yes this is gross by the way. Congratulations on winning a prize during the birthday bash. Taking this old computer into shop Monday and they are going to try and mate the 2 computers and see if we end up with a workable one. If not-mailing address is 4009 Danube Circle, Valdosta, GA 31605. We will just have to communicate by snail mail!
