Final Emma's Project and a Bonus

Good morning! The final round of November projects was posted over at Emma's Paperie and they are so neat!! The workshop this month was working with these Oval Hexagon Glass Jars.

Here's one pic of my project (there are more on Emma's blog). I make a little Child's Baking kit and used my jars to package some child sized cake & cookie mixes. I bought these recipes a few years ago and made a cookbook for my nieces. They make tiny little cakes and cookies (think Easy Bake Oven size) which is nice when your child wants to make something but you really don't want to have a whole cake (because who's the one that going to end up eating it?!?!). The recipes are formatted so that you can mix up the dry ingredients, package it up and gift it with the recipe of how to finish up the cake. I added some tiny little baking tins and a jar of sprinkles.

Head over to Emma's blog and see what her DT did - beautiful projects!! I had such a fun month getting to being a Guest for Emma's - thank you so much Cindy!! :)

One more quick pic . . . I had a chance to play along with MFT's What's Up Wednesday last week. My buddy Joanne posted the challenge - to use water, water in the image, watercoloring, anything involving water! Shannan Teubner did a great watercoloring tutorial to go along with it - you really should go check it out, I am always looking to improve my coloring techniques! So I gave it a try and then finished my card up using this week's CPS sketch which is sponsored by My Favorite Things so how perfect! :) The image is Be Calm and I just love the pretty design on the tub! I actually was one of the 3 random winners drawn for a $5.00 gift certificate - yea! - so I was able to pick up one of the cute MFT new releases last night - Snowbunny Flopsey - isn't he adorable?!
