Today the My Time DT is showing off the soon to be released "Treasured" (May goodies will be in the store May 1st!). I actually made my Treasture chest in to more of a fishing tackle box. My dad used to take us fishing off of the pier when I was a kid and we LOVED it!! Thinking back now, it may have been more about giving my Mom some peace and quiet, lol. We would go in to the restaurant at the end of the pier for some hot cocoa... yummy! So naturally I filled this one with the Crain Special Recipe hot cocoa!
Naturally you have to have marshmallows with hot cocoa :) My sentiment comes from the digital set called A Vintage Day for Dad, I enlarged it some so it would fit the front and I printed it in chocolate (it actually comes in 7 different colors!!). I used some Pewter Liquid Pearls to frame it. For the bottom of the tackle box I used some Metallic Rub-On paste to make it look dirty. I used some of the gunmetal paste for the "latches", then added several "brads/nails".
For my card, I used the soon to be release paper pack, Bold Boys. I also printed another sentiment from the Vintage Day for Dad but this time I printed it black and picked up the blue from the paper and re-colored the word "number" to match. I used Gimp to alter my images. Easy peasy and uber fun project!!
