Summer Memento Mini Pail

Going along with the "Fill-er-Up" theme, here is another decorated pail. No stamping on this one, just lots of great papers and ribbons from American Crafts. The lettering are "Thickers" from AC which come in a variety of colors, but I purchased them in white so that I could decorate them as I like. In this instance, going along with the summer beach theme, I covered them in bands of Stampendous embossing powder (like the Painting with Powder technique). At the bottom is Sand EP, middle is Baby Blue Pastel, and the top is a sun-shiny Sun Yellow. The pail is filled with little mementos like sand and sea shells. The lid has shells and a rock with a heart worn through it. The pictures are of the Barbie and Ken of the teen set, Tyler Hudson and Melanie Martin. Melanie is the daughter of one of my best friends and stamping buddies, Jamie. Those two are so photogenic that you will probably see their smiling faces popping up on several creations of mine in the future.
