Name / Picture Pails

I love when I finally make a project I have had running through my head  - for EVER!!! Well, actually for almost a year, but that's almost like forever , right?? :)

Thank goodness for long weekends that are extended by a snowday!!

This is done with all my love for my grandson, who will be 1 year old next month.

Enjoy the pictures, the details will be at the end.

I'm sorry about the glare, but I wanted to show the back side ! I like the reflection showing on the countertop!!

The pails were purchased at Target, a long time ago.
~ Patterned Paper - DCWV - All About Boys
~ Solid Paper - Bazil - Textured
~ Letters - Nursery Rhymes - cut at 2 inches
~ Critters, Car, Plane and Dump Truck - B is For Boys
      cut at 2 inches
I filled the center of the letters with Glossy Accents and did some doodling around the egdes with my black gel pen. They were attached with dimensionals from SU.
I added 'Googly' eyes to all the animals and attached them with glus dots

The pictures were all cut at different sizes - some with punches, nestabilites or by hand. The same with the white mats they are mounted on. I put doodles or inked the edges of all the picture mats.
 I hope I have remembered all the details. If you have any questions , please leave them in the comments and I will get back to as soon as I can  :)

I am hoping to enter this project in a challenge or two. I will let you know which ones if I do.

Entered  ~ Random Amusing Challenge #100 at Glenda's Paper,Scissors & Rocks  -  use Red in the project.

As always, thanks for stopping by !!
