Thought Box

Tuesday Taggers     Alter It Week-Boxed Up!
It just so happened that a writer friend of mine asked me to come up with a thought box to help inspire her in the writing of her first book.
I haven't played at Tuesday Taggers for quite some time, so this was a match made in cyberspace.
We found these little acorn charms at Hobby Lobby and from those small items this idea was born. 
The box itself is 8" X 10". The oak tree is a free Google image, the rest is a lot of Tim Holtz products and stamps, distress inks, tissue tape, and Claudine Hellmuth paints, SU stamps, and a Michael's hot air balloon stamp. 
My friend collects fonts, so I used 3 different fonts to computer create the words, she taught me it was o.k. to tear the edges of paper, I haven't quite mastered tearing up old books yet, but I'll get there, and just to keep some of me in the project I added 2 tiny hearts. 
She follows my blog so this won't be a surprise, but this one's for you Linda.

Thanks for visiting and viewing,
Beverly G ♥

OMG--this is so absolutely wonderful! When you mentioned you were making me an "inspiration piece", I had no idea you would make something so fantastic and 3-D (I would have settled for one of your fabulous cards)!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart--it will have place of honor in my writing area ;-)
