Altered jar for Brookie's teacher...and Halloween pics :):):):)

Hi everyone! :)

I wanted to share my DT altered jar I made for the latest challenge at LESSology :):):)

I had so much fun making my altered jar! Recently Brookie's director of her daycare got transferred to another daycare, and I had a little trinket jar sitting around and I thought I would dress it up and add some Hershey's kisses too! (can't ever hurt to have chocolate added to any gift, right?) :):):)

This is what  I started with :):):)

And here is what I made for her :):):)

I used Nikki Sivils "School is Cool" line on this :):):)

Hope you all can play along :):):):):)

And I wanted to share our Halloween photos too :):):):):):):)  So the blond wig for Brookie was a BUST! :( It was totally cheap and when I tried to gets the kinks/knots out of it, it tore the inside (where the cap is) we had to abandon that idea and move on to being a Barbie Princess Fairy! :):):):):) Hey... whatever works, right?!?!?! :):):):):):):):):):):)

Here is Mr. Dandy in his Sheriff Woody (from Toy Story) costume :):):):)

And before we headed over to the parents house for dinner and trick or treating...we stopped by my dear friend Sherry's house to show off Brookie and Mr. Dandy :):):):):):):)

I think I look VERY tired in this pic... well I am not used to looking that way! lol! :)

My kids and Sherry's grandkids (her granddaughters looked SO BEAUTIFUL!) :):):):):):):)

Trick or Treating with my in-laws neighbors! :):):):)

Brookie and the neighbor girl play together all the time when we go over to Brian's parents :):):):)

Can you just see the Scrapbook layout title on this one!?!?!?!? LOL! :):):):):):)

Back at the in-laws where the kids got more treats!! :):):):):):)

    What an awesome share. I love seeing these precious pictures of Ms Brookie and Adam too. They are just priceless.

    That jar is so delightful and what a fun project. I am sure Brookie's teacher will treasure it for many years to come.

    I love seeing you all. The pictures of us, I thought we both looked tired, but for me, that seems to be the new look these days. I run myself ragged and then get up and do it all over again the next day.

    I can't wait to spend some girl time together. I want to make some of those darn flowers, and I need you to show me again. The ones from the circles you were making when Marydon and I came over.

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend sweet girl. I love you. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
