You Da Man

Hello everyone in bloggie land! It has been very busy this past week in the casa de Martin. My brother was in town from Nashville, it was my mother-in-law's XXth birthday (she'd kill me if I put her age) & it was my husband's 50th birthday! We had 3 big family parties in 3 days, so I'm still recovering.

I got my husband & his friends tickets for the Demolition Derby at the Sonoma County Fair (total testosterone fest, I know). This is the little tool box I made to put the tickets in....

And here is the other side, with a different tag....

On the inside bottom I put some little paper tools, which I hand-cut from a 12x12" sheet....

SIZE:  4.29" (max size on a 12x12" mat)
CRICUTExpression & Gypsy
PAPER Debbie Mumm & Creative Imaginations
INKColorbox "Silver" & Tim Holtz "Black Soot"
TWINEThe Twinery "Stone"
OTHERFiskars hole punch & paper edgers

The stamps I used are from this set by K Andrew Designs....
