Oops, Sorry Carol!

I made one of my photo Altoids tins and a card for my sweet friend, Carol, and gave it to her last week.  Her real birthday was Sunday and I forgot to post this.  Happy Birthday, Carol, I love you!
She loves everything poodle so I searched the Internet for a vintage poodle photo that "whispered" a caption to me.  That is how I make my photo mint tins.  The original photo was so sweet that I made it into a card.
You might also notice I made an alternate background to use when I take pictures on top of my workbench.  I love the one covered with the bright yellow wallpaper but sometimes it is a little too busy.  This one is covered with dictionary pages and I have Carol to thank.  My little background screens are made from scrabble boards.  I only had one complete one and needed two.  She needed more "B" scrabble tiles for her project.  A perfect trade with a perfect friend!

Love your funny poodle caption. We have the same 'paperweight' situation here but with a black cat instead of a poodle.

I imagine your friend will be thrilled with her personalized and ooak gift. :-)

Oh yes - I love the saying! My mom has two poodles and I can see them on her desk! Carol is a lucky lady!

Fun personalized gifts. Seems I am always looking for a letter or two. But there is always a plethora of odd Z's...smiles...Renee
