Flashback Friday ~Budding Artist

I was browsing through my photos and I realized that I have never added this project to my blog.  I don't know why.  Just an oversight I guess.  So, here is an old~new project for today.  Old because I made it last year, new because I have never shared it.

I used a tin pail and covered it with patterned paper using mod podge.  Then I added stickers that said "Budding Artist".  Inside I put a cute chipboard book and some art supplies.  It is ready to take on the road!  This would be fun for a long car trip, or just to have when the kids get bored this Summer.
HAPPY crEAtIng :)

I link to THESE LOVELY places.  Show them some love!
