ScrapFIT Workout #71

Good morning everyone! It's been one busy weekend here- my husband's mom and her boyfriend have been up visiting to we've been running around, grilling, swimming, 4-wheeling, and staying out late! But they leave this morning after breakfast- so I wanted to get this post up before we had to take off for that!

Workout #71 @ ScrapFIT is titled "Home Sweet Home"- and it's a bit of a different assignment from ScrapFIT; the challenge is to create a paper craft to be displayed in your own home! It can be a banner, a unique way to display a photo, etc...

Here's what I came up with:

"Altered Mason Jar"
I've had this antique mason jar (one with the wire enclosures) sitting up on my shelf above my TV with a Christmas spray poking out the top and a penny laying at its bottom, lol- for the last year and a half- and I was so sick of looking at it! So I decided that this was going to be my altered project. For some reason, I was feeling the autumn colors and so I dug into my box of Fall Decor and found some pumpkin spice potpourri to go inside. It could also hold a candle too!

The sponsor for Workout #71 is Paper Issues:
They are offering a $15 gift certificate to their store!!

I hope you can join us for this "outside the box" challenge @ ScrapFIT! And I hope you've all had a great weekend- will be back a little later with my very first reveal for OUAS!!!
