Gratitude Tree - Oui Jar

My first project repurposing a Oui yogurt jar ! 
I have a couple more to share soon. 

After removing the labels and cleaning the glass well,
I painted it with chalk paint then lightly sanded it in places.
I then hand lettered it with a brush and acrylic paint.
I placed a small piece of floral foam inside,
hot gluing it into place. 
I gathered some small branches from my yard
and stuck them in the foam.
Moss from my old floral supplies stash tops it off.
Tiny paper punched tags were written on
then hot glued on the branches with tiny twine bows.
A strip of torn plaid cotton fabric, more twine and a
small wooden heart (painted) finish it off, 

It's a bit sparse, hoping that the kids would want
to add some tags to it, too. 

Thanks for looking =)

Halloween Scrapbook

These are a few pages from a small scrapbook I made recently 
for some old photos one of my uncles gave me
of extended family members building a float.
They are pretty basic pages.

Rubber stamp images were from Stampin' Up!

Patterned papers are from Die Cuts With A View stacks

Various embellishments

The photos are terrible because I didn't think to take
pictures until after the album was assembled.
It is an old paper page type photo album that I
attached the pages directly to then decided to try to find
plastic sleeves that could be altered to fit.
The only way was to trim them down then punch holes in
the sleeves themselves for the paper pages to slide into.
The paper page and the plastic sleeve are both attached
to the album covers by posts running through each part.
It is a bit of work to disassemble it.
So the photos are of the pages in plastic sleeves
inside of the album covers, thus the glare.

Thanks for looking =)
