It was a challenge to do, but I did it, and I love it, Here are pictures of the front and back of the lighthouse.
You can buy Jims pattern at his Etsy shop HERE
I used Graphic 45's paper collection:By The Sea for most of the project. I wanted the lighthouse body to have a old wood look to it, so I found a paper that was white and looked like wood grain, I used TH distress inks to color it an off white and red.
The base of the project has a drawer in it to store your goodies. I used real sand and shells to decorate it. I found this cute lawn chair at Michaels and added a note in a bottle. Click on the pics. to make larger!
I put a couple of my own touches on the lighthouse. I added a clasp to close up the back and added a door.
The fun part of the project is that there is a SURPRISE, it all comes apart,and there is a mini book inside!
Please let me know what you think, I love to hear your comments, Shari
