Paint Bucket 1

Happy Tuesday everyone. I can not believe that I reached 100 followers yesterday when just last week I hit 75.  I have to say thanks to all my new followers and I hope you have all posted a comment HERE to win the set of Cricut Markers I have.
NOW: I have fallen in love with those clear, plastic paint buckets. My daughter has received two of them at birthday parties and I just had to see what I could do with them. She let me have one of them to play with and I made this fun Scrapbook Queen bucket to hold some of my odds and ends.
I used my Cricut Everyday cartridge to cut the wording and the crowns are from Nursery Rhymes. I have to say I played with putting this on and what adhesive to use. I ended up pasting the words and art onto another background paper and I used my ATG gun to glue that on. I think it looks okay, but I am going to try buying another one (my daughter flat out refuses to let me have her other one) and see what else I can use to glue things onto it. Hopefully another one will be posted soon.

Have a great day everyone.

  1. This is such a great altered art. Are you putting it up for circle contest as you have recycled one item already? Just recylce 2 more and you can enter the contest. I love this project. TFS. Now off to ask friends if they have a paint bucket. :)

  2. Maybe if you promised your daughter that it would be done in a princess theme? That always works for my DD.

    So cute!
