I made this Trouble Box for a challenge at Scrappy Giraffe Kits

Our challenge choices:
Song Choices
1. Poprocks & Coke (Green Day)
2. Over my head (The Fray)
3. Trouble (Coldplay)

Scrappy Mission (choose only 1)
1. Alter a clipboard (front & back) using the song name OR lyrics on project
2. Use the sketch and song name OR lyrics
3. Alter small box, frame, or tin using lyrics OR song name on the project

Requirements (choose only 1)
1. Use all items from one manufacturer (this includes, cardstock, alphas, and flowers)
2. Use rub-ons and cardstock only, no pp
3. Use 5 pattern papers - any manufacturer (I used 5 different pp from Basic Grey's Phoebe line

Bonus 1. distressing (I distressed the chipboard title letters)

I chose to create a "Trouble" box to be used to put troubles/prayer requests. A favorite scripture, "Cast all your cares on Him for He cares for you" 1Peter 5:7 is printed on a transparency and placed on the top.

So, to celebrate my second pub, I would like to give this prayer box as a gift to someone. If you'd like to have it, please say so in the comments. I'll have Connor pick a name soon.

That is so cool Theresa. My mother just bought me a little "trouble box" necklace with a pearl inside. You did a great job on this one and I would love to be entered in the RAK.

Thanks for offering
