Hi, Friends......

I am here with an autumn-y altered treat jar to share with you today.  I made this for a friend's birthday last week....and filled it with mini-chocolate bars.  Oh, yum!!!  (Good thing I didn't buy the bag of candy any earlier than I did or there wouldn't have been any left for my friend!!)

I stamped fall leaf and acorn images over some used sheets of gift wrap tissue and sprayed it with orange, gold, and brown mists.  Then I tore it into pieces and Mod Podged it onto my jar.  After it was dry, I wrapped this gleaming gold punchinella around it and glued on my leaves.  

The leaves were punched from autumn-colored scraps of patterned paper from my stash and then dipped around in Distress Inks.  I added some Faber-Castell- Glass Bead Glitter Gel here and there over the jar and leaves for some sparkle.  Then I added the gold bow.

I am trying to keep this post short because I tend to get bogged down with my blog posts and that makes my mojo go away!  :(  So......please help me get my mojo back by entering my GIVEAWAY and by getting ready for the Cat Lovers Hop!!  

Thanks so much for stopping by!
