Broadway Birthday Bucket

My dear daughter turned 15 a few days ago. She's a huge fan of musical theater and we had a special present for her that needed a cool presentation. This paint bucket is what I came up with! I had some cool music paper in my stash that was just perfect for the lining. Each image is a digital stamp from Sassy Studio. I got the Musical Posters off the internet and cut them down to size. Ashley was thrilled with both the gift (tickets to see Katy Perry) and the presentation! She's anxiously awaiting her first trip to NYC to see some Broadway shows in May!
