Good morning! Oh, thank Heaven it's Friday!!! It's been a crazy week for me, and I for one am looking forward to the weekend. I don't think I'm alone and I'd be willing to bet there are a lot of us out there!! If you're looking for something creative to do this weekend, why not join us for the Peachy Keen Challenge this week? Challenge #21 is "You've Been Framed", and that means that you can create anything your heart desires as long as it's in a frame, or includes a frame. Here's what I came up with for this wonderful challenge.
This is my old fish bowl type cookie jar that I use to hold Mini Milkbones for Miss Lola and Mr. Oliver, our spoiled rotten Yorkiepoos. I've been wanting to revamp the cookie jar lid that I had tole painted years ago, and not so well, I might add. When I saw this challenge, I knew I wanted to attempt to replace that lid, so I set out to Ben Franklin to see what I could find. I ran across this circle frame in the unfinished wood crafts section, then I headed to the scrapbook paper aisle and found this fabulous paper. I knew when I received the PK-442 Happy-Go-Lucky Dog Face Assortment stamps that they would be perfect for just this type of project, and I was right! I actually dusted off the Cricut and Gypsy, along with my Create A Critter cartridge to cut out the puppy and the "Ruff, Ruff". I had these cute bone buttons that I'd been saving for a while to embellish, and the only other thing I added for embellishment was the twine bow and ties for the buttons. I hope you like it! I love the way it turned out, and honestly, Lola and Oliver could care less about what's On their cookie jar. Suffice is to say they are ONLY interested in what's inside. SO, I guess that makes us ALL happy! :-)
