Altered items

OK, so I'm not usually one who does altered items. I see beautiful things other people make and I just don't have that creative bug. These may be the only altered items you see from me this year!

The first is a shadow box. It's a picture of my Grandparents, Dad and Uncle taken many years ago. My Grandfather recently passed away and I brought this to the wake. It was actually my sister's idea, she also made one. When I get a chance I'll post hers.
All it is is an 8 X 8 scrapbook page using the brocade backgrounds paper. Look how it matched perfectly with the wallpaper in the picture, AMAZING! I also added a bit of ribbon and a hat pin from the pretties kit.

I recently joined some ribbon shares and was looking into how I could store all of these ribbons that aren't on spools. I thought these little jars would be perfect. All I had to do to these was add a ribbon and some of the SAB rub-ons and now I have these adorable little ribbon jars. I think I am am going to have to make more of these but first I'll have to eat more articoke hearts :)

Two posts in one day...a record. Actually, we are getting yet ANOTHER winter storm. I figured I'd post early before I loose my satellite signal.
