July Challenge, Good Things Come in a Small Package

I love the month of July!  It’s super hot, days seem longer, tons of cookouts, parties & play dates for my girls and myself~  Oh and CHA is in July too~

With a new month comes a new challenge!  I am pleased to announce that Becky from Scrappin Becky B will be hosting this month’s challenge.  She did such a great write-up about it on her blog.. that I am re-posting her post.  So here is Becky~

I am excited to announce that I am hosting this month’s challenge: “Good Things Come in Small Packages”. Below are the photos of the project that I created for this challenge…it is a mini altered tin that I turned into a friendship scrapbook for my best bud, Jamie. Inside are a few fun photos of us, as well as little pockets that hold tags with friendship quotes…some of them serious, and some of them just down-right funny! (There is a step-by-step tutorial on Becky’s Blog  so that you can make one of these cuties too!) Here’s the first photo, which is a view of the lid:
