Happy birthday, Craftster!

For my challenge entry I couldn't help but decorate an Altoids tin. I wanted it to be festive and fun and full of Craftster-y goodness. Here's what I came up with: a sweet little girl who's not afraid to be a little silly every now and then, along with her little dog, who never dreamed that anyone who is a fan of Craftster may just be inspired to dress up a pup in some crazy costume, just for the fun of it.


Stars for all the wonderful, inspirational people I've met through the site, and a balloon celebrating the 10 years of fun Craftster has provided. It was not easy tying that tiny bow around the neck of the balloon!


And last but not least, some bright bulbs to represent all the wonderful and creative ideas that Craftster members have shared.


So, happy birthday, Craftster, and many more!

Really good, racky! I love the 'bright bulbs' reference and the dog's long suffering expression is wonderful.

I love this, racky. What an awesome tribute to Craftster. The clown nose on the pug is so silly and fun.

I haven't been active on craftster on years, and I saw this post and knew without even looking at the left side of the screen that this was a rackycoo creation!  I don't know how you crammed so much fab into an altoid tin but I adore it
