School Memory Jar for Petaloo

Tomorrow it's back-to-school for my kidlet. I'm going to miss having that boy around all day.

I have to be honest, I'm usually completely stumped when challenged to create a 'back to school' project. This year however I was a woman on a mission! I knew that I wanted to create a project for keeping memories.

I've taken a good sized jar with a wide mouth. The lid has been gussied up with a bit of paper from Graphic 45's ABC Primer Deluxe Collector's Edition and I've added trims and flowers from Petaloo.

A length of wide Crochet Lace Trim and Burlap Trim are wrapped around the jar, then Burlap Small SunflowersBurlap Wild Sunflowers and a sprig of DIY-Baby’s Breath is added. A tag and key are the final touches.

So now I have a place to store all of my son's memories from grade 7. Notes from his adventures, snapshots and small treasures found in his pockets. They'll fill this jar and be kept safe and sound. 

Here's hoping grade 7 is the best year ever :)

Summer Fun Altered Canvas with Petaloo

I have loads of fresh photographs from our misadventure camping trip last week and I'm celebrating our "Summer Fun" with Petaloo by creating this altered canvas. 


I'm not really a scrapper, but I wanted to celebrate the memeories from our misadventures in camping so this altered canvas was an ideal option.


I know that summer fun often means bright, vibrant colours, but in this instance I'm using the DIY-Mini Mix in Teastained Cream just as they are to compliment the understated colours in the photograph. They add just the right amount of texture, and they pair so well with the natural burlap trim.
