baby tin

Today I am sharing a tin I altered a while back for a friend. She had her 3rd child in April. I know how the details and milestones of that first year get lost in all the activities and things going on when you have older kids. (Not that I am a victim of youngest child syndrome or anything...*wink*). So I made her a scrapbook tin. The poem sums it up pretty well, but basically you write little things you want to remember on scraps of paper and you throw them in the tin. Later you can take those papers out and remember the moments to scrapbook them. The tin is also good for holding cards that people give when the baby is born or other small mementos.paper: Stampin' Up: Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip; Crate Paper: Cowboy Collection Sheriff and Bull Rider
ink:
VersaMagic: Mango Madness
other: Mod Podge, letters are from a Cuttlebug alphabet.

Poem:

Baby books are great ideas
but sometimes you're too busy
living with a little one
can put you in a tizzy
Milestones pass too fast at times
to find the proper page
So jot a note of each event
with date and baby's age
Like "took 3 steps on June the 1st"
or "teething 5th of December"
Then drop it in this memory tin
to help you to remember.
