My First Altered Tin

GOSH I love swaps! I am SO addicted! I was a bit intimidated before I decided to join Unshelved Words Altered Tin Swap, but I am so glad that I did. I am really proud of the results of my first altered tin and I hope that whoever receives it loves it as much as I do. Gee, are you surprised that it has a French theme? Well, if you know me, of course you aren't!

Karla & Beth have me addicted to bling now!

Tins had to have a spring theme & quote.









I really loved this project! Thanks to Marilyn at http://unshelvedwords08.blogspot.com/ who hosted this fab event. If you would like to see the other tins from the swap, just check out her website where she has a slide show posted of them all. They are all beautiful and I will be happy with whichever one I receive.
Have a great creative day!
