Candle Tin

Hi there ...

Well we've certainly been having the April showers ... mixed with hailstones, wind and bursts of sunshine ... today is lovely so far.
Kinda prompted me to change my blog colours to something a little brighter ... not sure I will stick with this ... it may be a little plain for me ...
Anyway ... All I have to share today is an altered tin which I did a while ago but never posted ... I made it into a candle tin ... here are a few photos 



Book pages pasted on the lid and the base is covered with TH papers


Some ribbon and tulle and a flower (which I didn't make ... it was salvaged from a hairband)


Some bits of lace and a co-ordinating candle inside


I got to go into the city yesterday (Liverpool) ... it's only 30 mins away but I don't go often and as the children are still on their Easter break ... the city was heaving! that's why I don't go much. 
It is fabulous though ... any tourist would just love the buildings, the restaurants, the shopping and the sights. There is a lot to see and do and if you're into Designer .. well we have that too!
Today is the start of the Grand National so this evening the city will be even more busy - I'm looking forward to Ladies Day tomorrow .. not that I go ... I just love to see the pictures of the ladies all dressed up 


Before I go I just want to thank the ladies at The Play Date Cafe for picking This card as one of their  Fab 4 ... I am thrilled! 


Wishing you a lovely day

~ Ros ~

This is gorgeous, Ros. What a fabulous idea, it looks so pretty.
I really need to visit Liverpool again, last time I went we didn't have long as we had to visit the passport office. Have a great Ladies Day.xxxx

I am going to watch the races too. I used to live on the doorstep, though I did not go to ladies' day.
Your blog is nice, I like the colours. You could add a picture to the outer background, I did, though mine is a bit too busy.
Love your decorated box, so professionally done...I wish I could do professional my stuff still always looks messy.
Love Sue xxx
