As I was chatting to my son on Thursday evening over the telephone, he asked me to put him a few photographs together of him over the years and particularly ones of me and him together, he says he hasn't got many. So as we recently purchased a scanner, I shall find him a few.
However, I started to look for a box to put them in....I could find a nice sturdy one, the right size but it still had the remnants of stickers on it. So I decided to alter it. Now, I have always avoided this altered item thing, it holds too many visions of Blue Peter (which I hated), egg cartons and something amazingly useless and ugly at the end of it. But, I went against my principles and covered this one with Basic Grey Paper. I wanted to make it fairly mystical as I know Cal will appreciate that so the image on of the top is actually a tarot card image, the "World tree". This was taken from a delightful tarot deck "The Sacred Circle Tarot" by Anna Franklin and Paul Mason. If you have never seen the deck, check it out, it is beautiful particularly if you like celtic and pagan imagery.
I added a few stickers and embellishments along the way and think it will do for the job.
