I've been wanting to use the cute stamps from the June 2011 KOM for this challenge, however, due to the postal strike, I just finally received my KOM yesterday. Well, I wasted no time inking it up :) When we were on our cruise in January, I scooped up some sand from a couple of the beaches we were at with the intention of putting it in a glass jar and labelling it for a keepsake. I found these cute square jars at the dollar store that worked perfectly. When I flipped through all my Unity KOM, I discovered there were actually a few 'summer' type stamps, so I created a different label for each jar.
Please excuse the quality of the photo's as I was hoping to use the natural sunlight, but it also caused a shadow. KOM used are as follows:
The Beach - June 2011 KOM all smiles
SUN - June 2010 KOM fly....free
Sunshine - Oct 2009 KOM where ever you go
The tags on the front were made using the Feb 2010 KOM nothing but blue skies
I also added a little embellishment to each tag, as well as some stickles on both the suns as well as some distress stickles on the sand. I wrapped ribbon around each lid, as well as string around each jar.
Have a great day.
