shine brightly...


Hi, my name is Amy and I'm addicted to mason jars:


What's that?  I know...I didn't use a speck of patterned paper...gasp!

I was inspired by Virginia's challenge:



Now how fun are those pics?  Cello cases...love them!  Back in 1994 I was toying with the idea of taking up Cello lessons...pretty funny as most of you know how petite I am...BUT then I found out I was pregnant with my girl and then it never happened...maybe when I retire...LOL..after I learn how to quilt and crochet and knit and...

Anywho's, I cut strips of Stampin' Up cardstock...pretty easy smeasy.  The sentiment is Lawn Fawn...always love her sentiments.

Have you heard of the flickr group


I'm linking up to that too:)  

I can't imagine what is going through the minds of the Top 20!  I'd be a nervous wreck!  I was in total awe of the first round of "You Color my World" cards...sheesh, talk about crazy amounts of talent.  I had a really hard time voting, I follow a ton of the gals....

Good Luck to each and everyone of you!

Sooooo incredibly glad that it is Friday!!!!  It's been REALLY busy at work but we took some time out yesterday to go to lunch at Toulouse Petit & we went to the King Tut exhibit.  It was a wonderfully relaxing afternoon...something that our department needed.

I love the ideas of stars in the jar :) You're making me want to start collecting them...I am RESISTING. I will not. (I will maybe)
Love the rainbow effect with the paper! and I get the exact same feeling when I don't use patterned paper. Huh? What? That can't be mine!?
