17 already?




Last Sunday my daughter, Sian, turned 17! where does time go? I decided to make her an altered tin and for each "tag" to contain things that related to her... it took some doing - especially since the ink I'd distressed the tin with didn't want to dry on the paint for days!! but, we got there in the end. I was pleased with the finished result and so was she! You always think things get easier when they get older but with driving lessons looming I'm not so sure!!

What a lovely and original idea.

I gave my son a card with 18 pound coins on when he was 18! Not very impressed LOL so I changed them up into real money LOL
