30 years from now, it won't matter what shoes you wore, what your hair looked like, or where you bought your jeans. What will matter is what you learned and how you have used it.

Thank you very much.

I made the water by tinting water based polyurethane and squirting it into the tin by syringe.  That's the stuff they sell in Hobby Lobby/Wal Mart in the craft dept painting aisle.  I used gloss.  It shrinks when it dries, allow several days though. 

I tweaked the tin and made a new turtle for it, too.  I added a hole so the tree could stand there when the tin is closed.  And I added a seagull eating a sandwich to reflect the thieving gull that swiped my husband's sandwich on our hike to Caladesi Island.  He thought I had grabbed it until he saw the look on my face as I saw the bird take off, having a little trouble regaining altitude because it was a big sandwich.  It was really funny until I had to split my sandwich with him.   Cheesy

I cant believe you just made it MORE fantastic! I didn't even think it was possible Shocked

By the way, what is paper clay if you don't mind me asking? I'm not sure we have that here, and I really want to replicate the sandy beach cover of your altoids on my own.. Forgive the question, if it's a bit dumb. Smiley
