Sarsaparilla Baby Can

This is a baby can and a card to match that I did for my sister as a gift to one of her coworkers. The little boy's room is done in Western stuff and CTMH's Sarsaparilla Paper Packet was the perfect addition.
You should be able to click on the picture to enlarge and read the poem attached to the can. In short, it says that life is too busy to immediately sit down and do a scrapbook page or add "firsts" to a baby book....just write the activity and date and baby's age and drop it in the can. When you have more time to scrapbook, you can grab the can, pull out the notes and do your layout or add it to the baby book. It's been a life-saver to me and to everyone who's ever recieved one as a gift from me.
