It's A Girl Thing - My Older Diva

Hi there,

If you have been here before thank you for dropping by again but if you are a first timer I hope you enjoyed your visit.

This is a project that I made for my older daughter, she just turned 20 last week (12 of July) - my where's the time gone? They grow up so quick ***sigh***.

I have this cookie jar that I bought for $2.95 from our local discount store. I bought the jar to store my craft nik-naks but it did not work, so I put the jar away for months. After ramblings my head for months trying to think what I can use the jar for and I came up with this... lol.

I cut out my daughter's photo, fold an inch on the bottom of the photo; applied a glossy accent to the bottom of the picture and attached the inch fold on the bottom of the jar to make the photo stand up properly. I lightly colored the cotton balls with Pebbles Inc Chalking Set to give me a cloudy effect. I stamp the Shrinky Dinks with the butterfly and colored with the ink pads and punch them out. The rest is just a matter of decorating the jar.

I had so much fun making this project even hubby helped me decorate and he also suggested some ideas.
