NKY WINS 25 Cent Aution at Legends

The auction is coming up again and I thought I'd share a little of what I've been working on. This is a gift jar inspired by a link a friend sent me. I plan on doing some more filled with journaling prompts, which is what the link showed. But for auction, the crowd seems a little less crafty so I'll fill this one with candy and promote it as a Mothers' Day gift.
Here you can see some of the lid detail. I distressed most all the paper. For the lid, I used the reverse side of the paper, clear embossed a butterfly on it and swiped some dreamcoat paint lightly over it to make it pop.
The lid itself is sponged with brown stazon and has a couple more paint swipes along the edges.

This is a write on, wipe off memo board made simply with a 12x12 layout frame. The glass simply wipes clean just like a white board.
All paper, ink, stamps & embellishment products used in these two projects are Close to My Heart. The frame & jar came from Hobby Lobby.
Thanks for stopping by!
