Cool Funky Cigar Box

This is the cigar box that Becky painted and decoupaged for Halie's 16th birthday! If you click on the pictures you'll really see the details!

She painted it red and then "crackled" it.. then painted it black... then decoupaged red roses and cut out designed from a cool scrapbook paper she got from Michael's.

Here is the inside! She glued a piece of that cool scrapbook paper, a mirror, a peacock feather and the word DREAM! Then she placed the birthday book inside! What a creative mom! Halie loved it!

Sweet 16 Birthday Memory Book

Becky made the cutest little collage birthday memory book for her daughter Halie's 16th birthday!
She used a few pieces of scrap cardboard and punched a couple of holes in them so she could tie (bind) them together using some hemp string. She also added beads to the string which made it look really cool and funky!
She collaged the pages with meaningful things in Halie's life such as her first day of kindergarten and a travel page because that is what Halie wants to do in the future!
Halie also loves the beach so Becky included a beach picture of her and her sister Sarah. Also a cute pic of Halie and her niece Ina in auntie Moe's pool!
Halie loves to cook and bake! This girl could seriously open her own restaurant, so there is a page representing that with a pic of her and daddy Mark baking cookies! Also a page about her animals... her little ducks who have now grown to be big ducks and her dog Harley with some wings to watch over her! :)
The back cover is very beautiful and includes her birth date and sweet 16! Love the hands holding planet earth! The world is yours Miss Halie! Happy sweet 16!
Such a sweet book for Halie to treasure for life made especially by her mother for her 16th birthday!

Note: Sorry some pics are sideways... they were rotated correctly in the picture file but didn't transfer correctly... oops
