Strawberries and Tin Cans!

Continuing with the Earthy Day Go Green theme I used SPCC #44 to decorate a tin can as a thank you gift for Priscilla's teacher. Now that is a way to repurpose and recycle! SPCC #44 colors are found in Cosmo Cricket's Earth Love (appropriate huh?)! I made a little notepad to stick inside with a scrap of scrapbook paper and some printer paper.

Here is my tin can dressed up for the occasion! I printed the sentiment myself and cut it out and adhered it to the middle of a journaling block. A clip attached the card to the notepad.
And the notepad - simply paper stapled together and fun letters on the front. Yes the e is supposed to be backwards - I had no more e's - I used a g!
And now for the strawberries. Amory, our friends and I had SO much fun picking strawberries and munching our way back to the front of the field! The ladies at the produce stand gave us a bucket and some rules (pick only red ones, don't go over the rows, don't step on the plants!) and off we went. It was muddy, wet and nasty! But alot of fun!

Thank you for stopping by - have a blessed day!
