Craft a Day While Colt's Away (CADWCA) #1

In my morning post I talked about our Son heading to Iraq this morning.  While I have been thinking about him ALOT today I came upon an idea.  I am going to attempt something BIG.  A Craft a Day until he comes home.  Wow, can I do this I ask?  I am going to try.  Here is #1......
Started out with a wooden box that you can make into a purse.
I removed all the hardware...
I then covered in Scrapbook Paper, sanded the edges,
 Used Distress Ink to age it and added a metal piece and old Perfume bottle Cap..

Painted the Inside Tiffiny Blue...

All finished and ready for notes to Colt....

Have a Blessed Day Everyone......
