Definitely a Challenge

This month's challenge theme over at CRAFT ROOM   'Is this humour?' is an unusual theme and at first I didn't think I would come up with anything. Then hey presto! I found some  packets of ATC cards which I bought years ago from a craft catalogue.  Called 'Memories in the Making' they're made by Leisure Arts Inc. and one of the packs was funny quotes.  Then I remembered a small empty yeast tin I've been meaning to alter for holding paperclips and Bingo! 
 The light-bulb came on and I was off.  The perfect combination to bring some humour to my office desk.  Here's a view around the finished tin.

I started by cutting a strip of white card to fit round the tin and stamped this with Broken China DI and Crafty Individuals' CI-017 script stamp.  I ran this through a crinkle machine to give a concertina effect and stuck it round the tin with double-sided tape.
Having chosen the quotes I cut and inked the edges with Broken China and stuck them round the tin.  The quotes are attached to the pictures but I cut some of them away to position them on the tin. 
The left-over strip with the scipt stamping on was used for the sentiments.  These were stamped using Black Soot DI and Tim Holtz Stuff to Say and a free Craft Stamper Magazine stamp. 
If you want to see what the quotes are, here is a close-up of three of them,
