Now onto my project. I happen to love Black, White, and a splash of PINK!!! Everything I love must have some pink in it. I decided to go with this treasure box I have been hoarding for a while and thought this was the perfect occasion to alter it and use it to store many of my scrappy goodies.
I started with a wooden treasure box I found at my local thrift store for 98 cents and painted it Pink.
Well enough of the talking how about I just let you see for yourself...
