Getting it in just in time!

ok, so Laura over at http://wishyouwerehere-laura.blogspot.com/ has this really fun challenge going on to alter an Altoids tin, so I just had to play. And if you have been following any of my challenges this week, you know that I was doing everything in a baby theme. So that is what I stuck with for the tin. And, I just received my cd of adorable fonts from Stephanie over at http://homegrownhospitality.typepad.com/homegrown_hospitality/ , so the font you see on the tin is her creation!! I love this cd full of fonts and words ready to print! If you do not have one, I highly recommend getting one!
So, I altered the outside and the inside of the tin as a "Mom's Survival Kit" and the contents are as follows:

A band-aid to help with all of life's hurt feelings.
An eraser- so everyone can start each day with a clean slate.
A lifesaver - for the times you need to be "Saved".
A Penny - so you will never be broke.
A Rubber Band - to remind you to be flexible.
A toothpick - to pick out the good qualities in your child.
A puzzle piece - to remind you that you are an important piece
in the journey of your child.
A tootsie roll - to remind you to roll with the punches.
A paper clip - so you can hold it all together.
A peppermint - to remind you that your job as a mom
is worth a mint!
A clothespin - because sometimes being the grownup just stinks!
Aspirin - for when all else fails, take two!







Hope you like it!

Don't forget to play in my giveaway posted below!

Love your altered tin and I especially love the MOM's survival kit and poem. I think we Mom's all have times when we need something out of this tin.
