Thank you CCCB  ladies!!! 
Hi my dear readers, I have been enjoying the company of my kids that are school free already.
So no blogging, it comes with the territory while we all adjust to the new schedules.
I have been dying to play @ CCCB they are such a fabulous group of girls!  I  decided today was the day to finally sit down and play.
Ros has a color challenge, it seems apricot and  peach seem to be on my work lately, so I was very happy to obligue.
I have done something new, inspired by the jars on the inspiration photo I decided to create my
very own mason jar.  Since I don't own one of the dies I decided to draw and cut my own. 
Of course being me I had to make it even more challenging, I wanted my mason jar to be dimensional and to actually hold something in it.
{ I forgot to mention earlier there is a bunch of Melissa Frances blooms inside ;)  }
 
I was sooo happy with the results, should had been taking photos of the process...
I exactoed my card base (gorgeous CP) and used vellum as my "glass".
My "fabric" is a remnant of Authentiques Mother's day line as is my label.
The cording is AC and the bloom Prima
Speaking of which Ck out my tic tac toe game, featured at the Prima blog today, yeyyyy!!!!!
 

more dimensional pics, so you can see the depth!
love the afternoon sun coming through the window

rich, textures, for my touch of gray I went with Tim Holtz tape

and finally the full card, hope you enjoyed my creation!

I had fun painting and giving texture to the new wood embellies by Prima and decided that it would make a perfect toy for my little one who loooves to play tic tac toe, x are the blooms 0 the leaves ;)

So many beautiful and sweet projects here Milagros. That mason jar is such a creative idea and I can tell you had so much fun making it.
Your lo is adorable with that pretty photo and lovely blooms. And finally I love that you made the packaging into something useful and even enjoyable for your youngest. TFS!!

How lucky you are to be on summer mode with your kids already! Hope you enjoy every single little moment!
I LOVE your projects! That mason jar you made is absolutely phenomenal. I LOVE the depth and the fact you have actual items tucked inside. Sooo love the pretty Authentique papers you used, too. And your layout is equally fabulous. Little Miss M is so beautiful. Love your elegant page with the touches of gold. The pearls are so, so pretty. Totally fun tic tac toe game, too. You are so creative!

Absolutely stunning projects, Milagros! LOVE how you've "stuffed" that yummy jar, and the newspaper strips are such a great backdrop for that gorgeous photo!
