My first inspiration/memory tin

Good morning!
Have you had a good weekend? I had a very productive one, designing 4 wedding invitations, a birthday card and an inspiration tin! So today I'm going to show you the latter one as the birthday one needs to arrive with it's recipient before I share!

I up-cycled a baby milk tin using some of the gorgeous free Sale-a-Bration papers, the free Banner Blast stamps and matching punch and the Spiral Flower Originals die.

I added a circle of paper to the top of the tin and topped it with my rolled roses.

I decorated the peg with some DSP paper and added some punched notelets, using the Artisan Label punch, for writing an inspirational message on.
The idea behind my tin is every time something good happens to you, you write a little note about it and pop it in the tin. Then when you're feeling a little down, or need a pick me up, you open it and hopefully the little notes will remind you that life is actually not as bad as you think!

Another take on the tin is as a baby memory tin, except that it could be for 'Baby's Firsts'...first tooth, first word, first steps etc. I plan to make a few of those in the not too distant future!
