Aloha Tea Tin

I've been wanting to alter these tea tins for the longest time!! I got these from Gina K. Designs the same time I ordered my owl stamps. Gina K. has got to be one of the most generous people out there, always having giveaways on her blog. Check out her website here.
This tin was made for somebody special who just celebrated her birthday. I feel so bad that I'm so behind on my creating and worse in being late in sending out birthday wishes! I won't "spill the beans" by telling you who this is for because she reads my blog - hehe! But I really wanted to post this because I was really excited when I finished it. I added red stickles to the hula girl and also on the aloha tag, so shiny! It looked a little on the plain side but I can see myself over doing it and then ruining the whole project!! Anyway, this tin will be filled with a bunch of yummy hawaiian goodies!
I cut 2 flowers and layered them on top of each other, I like the look of it this way. Finished it by adding some gold stickles to it to make it sparkle!
Supplies used: Do the Hula stamp set (retired), tea tin by Gina K. Designs, Red gingham ribbon, red and gold stickles, jumbo eyelet.
My funny cat story for today - every morning when I get up, I let Mochiko out of her kennel and she is so super happy! Purring loud like a car's engine and following me everywhere! She "thinks" she's the Queen of the house, but of course, she's wrong! haha! As the days go by, she is getting more daring. She's not allowed on the furniture especially the couches that my mom just spent a pretty penny re-upholstering...well the other morning, look where I found her? Doesn't she look comfy?? I took the pic and had to chase her off before grandma sees her and has a cow - eeks!
Thanks for letting me share these stories with you and of course, thanks for stopping by for the visit!

Aloha Teri!
I love your altered tin and I don't know how I missed it at first!!
I love the paper, flower and that stamp too. I didn't realize that it was retired though. I hate it when they retire such pretty stamps!!!
Mochiko knows where she belongs Teri, she looks like a queen sitting on her throne.
