Think Pink

Happy October Everyone!

I hope your Monday has gotten off to a fantastic start. I just love, love, love this time of the year. I don't know about your neck of the woods, but the trees have begun to turn into a wonderful fall mosaic. We're slowly, but surely preparing to celebrate the upcoming holidays beginning with Halloween. Halloween is actually one of my favorites. I would be remissed if I didn't mention we are approaching the second quarter of the football season and the Baltimore Ravens are looking pretty good. With all that being said, I wanted to kick-off the month of October highlighting National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. That's right! I'm thinking pink and I want you to do the same. Before long we'll all have pink thoughts.

I've created cards for this occasion, but as promised I have another altered cigar box to share with you today. Take a look...

This altered box has been titled, 'You Can Whip This.'
Of course I had surviving breast cancer in mind as I created it;
however, this is perfect for the individual that may be going through difficult times.

 I picked up a couple of wisk the other day. It's hard to find the miniture wisk when
you're looking for them. As you can see I wrapped both ribbons and netting around the
wisk and finished it off with a tag that reads, 'You Can Whip This.'

Here's a closer look. Not sure if you can tell, but I adhered a layer of DP
translucent paper over the DP for more durability and uniqueness too.

I know you probably have thought, she uses this ribbon quite a bit.
I have to admit, you're right. I just love all the frills. The plaid ribbon works
like a handle. Checkout the foundations. They're not Tim's. I really like the glass feet.

Just wanted you to see the inside.

The idea I had for this box was to fill it with 
inspirational thoughts before giving it to the recepient.

Well, you often inspire me and I can only hope I have been an inspiration to you.  As always,
thanks for visiting The Peddler's Gallery and come back real soon. I promise to have anothe wonderful altered cigar box to share with you.
