Altered Paint Pot~

Hi Ladies~
Hope you all had a lovely weekend.

I did a few jobs yesterday then had a lovely crafty afternoon while watching "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial". I love watching films while I craft. Saturday I watched "Babe" to my Hubby's disgust, this was not because he doesn't like Babe, but because I watched it last Saturday!!! I know, I just can't help it, I am such a Movie Freak, and don't care what I watch or how often I watch it, at least I am a Happy Bunny.

Anyway waffle over, I have another Altered Item to show you today. This time it's a delightful "Paint Pot"....Isn't it cute? I have seen these paint tins a few times on Create and Craft, but I have always not been quite quick enough to get one before they have sold out. Well all that changed last week when I managed to get two on the website, just minutes before they were gone!
As it is my Neice's baby's 1st Birthday at the end of the month, I thought I would decorate it and fill it with lots of goodies she would like (don't know what yet!).

Really enjoyed decorating this pot, and it did not take long at all, think i had it finished in about 2 hours. The papers are Basic Grey "Little Things" collection, the sentiment is from an Echo Park collection called "Sweet Girl".
I made a Tag by the handle, and a Rosette type flower made on my Hoogie Board (not a very good shot of it, sorry!). I have cut the letters for Iris's name on my Cricut Machine.
The shaped doily on the lid is a Nestie Shape.
