Altered ATC Container

Wow!!  Time has passed so quickly these past three weeks.  It's been a tough time.  My mom's health has continued to decline and it's heart breaking to watch.  My sister and I spend a lot of time making sure she has what she needs and most of all spending time with her.  As challening as it is - I still view this time with my mom as a precious gift and I am truly thankful for that.  I also decided that today was going to be a day spent at home with as much quiet as possible and time working on a project or two.  My wonderful secret sister sent me this really cute ATC holder and I've been wanting to decorate it from the moment I received it.  I was also wanting to work on a project that gave me a little "instant gratification". 

I used "More Mimi" cardstock from The Angel Company and attached it to the container with super takcy tape.  I used various ribbons to wrap around the container using super tacky tape and stamped "fantastical fun" from the "Bookoo Blessings" stamp set. 

Thanks Shirley Hotop for being such a great secret sister and for sending something that was so much fun decorate. 


  1. Very nice project. Glad to see you found time quiet time.

  2. What a beautifully done project! My thoughts are with you during this challenging time! Continue to think of them as precious, because they are! TFS!

  3. Great job! How does one become a part of the secret sister society?

  4. This is a beautiful container!
    And I'm so sorry about your mother. You are very blessed to spend this precious time with her.

  5. This is so pretty, Laine! Love the ribbons & paper :)

    And I'm so sorry to hear of your mother's health.
