Fishy Friends Baby Memory Can

I was asked by a friend to make a baby gift for her coworker. She said the nursery was decorated in a sea life theme in these colors. I used the retired Fishy Friends set.
I covered the can with non-SU paper as she wanted some polka dots in these colors and then added the waves by using Tempting Turquoise cardstock, and a now retired stencil from SU to create the waves. I sponged TT ink to give it some dimension. The sea life were stamped with Basic Black and colored in with Copics. I added some stickles to give them some sparkle. Each one was cut out and then popped them up all over the can. I made a little brag book that she can add photos to with our SU cardstock and the polka dot paper. It is made from plastic baseball sleeves. I stamped some paper to write on and made a pen to match. I hope she likes it! I made the frame around the poem with my SU
Big Shot Top Note Bigz Die. I love my Big Shot!!!
