This time the challenge is all about Tim's Distress Glitter technique, and can of course be found in his Compendium of Curiosities vol. III. This challenge is also being sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique. If you haven't been by their shop, stop by, it's a great place to pick up some supplies.
So for my entry: For this go 'round I decided to make this little altered Sucrets tin that I have had FOREVER, and add a micro album to the inside. This is perfect for my mom, who tends to travel a ton for work. I am going to fill it with pictures and messages from her grandkids and that way she can just throw it in her travel bag and pull it out when she needs a smile. I am also entering this over at

So now for some pictures....
This is the top of the tin. I used my distress glitter technique on a chipboard frame.
This is what it looks like when you open the tin. In the top I have glued a little booklet that will have some messages/quotes from my kiddos.
Here is what the mini looks like when you pull it out. It is double sided and has flip up flaps and pockets to keep pictures and journaling
this is the bottom....
