Tickled Pink Stamps New Challenge Blog!

Hi All!  I've been dying for Tickled Pink Stamps to have their first challenge on their new challenge blog and it's finally here!  It's a pretty easy one to get things started- Anything Goes...

As a gift for a friend who loves to journal I decided to make a Journal in a Jar.  She loves funky vintage clothes so I couldn't resist using the Lil Fashionette digi stamp 30's Lylah from the Tickled Pink Stamp Store because I could envision her in that fabulous coat clutching a sweet little purse just like Lylah is. 
The jar was empty when I took the picture but I filled it with journal prompts that I printed in different fonts from my computer before I gave it to her and added a journal to finish.  I had so much fun putting this together, and especially coloring this amazing image.  I'm happy to say the gift left her speechless which was a huge compliment.  I'm already trying to think how I'm going to top it next time!
Supplies: Digi Stamp- 30's Lylah Lil Fashionette- Tickled Pink Stamps; Copic Markers; Clear Paint Pail- Michaels; Green Velvet DP- SEI; Jillibean Soup DP- Cup of Yak; Classy Red Pearls- Queen and Company; Paper Flowers- Green Tea Flowers in White, Colored with Copics; Sentiment- Printed from Computer
