The following is a special gift for a very special Birthday Girl ~ I scored a box of old Griffith Spice jars about a year ago. Wasn't sure what to do with them until Amanda asked for them, reconditioned, for her birthday gift. With the aid of a free label download on Flickr, some waterslide decal paper, paint, scrapbook paper, a laminator and A LOT of elbow grease ~ here's the metamorphous....

|ready to be gifted....|
|to the Birthday Girl!|

I created a prototype where I painted the slider yellow, added tea stained seam binding, a piece of vintage cotton lace and a snippet of bling....

|How could I NOT help one of my favorite brides?|
I leave you with one more picture....my sweet great nephew, Zachary, was deep sea fishing with his Dad and caught TWO sharks ~ one was 2.5 feet and the other 3 feet! Oh yes, Zachary just turned 11 years old!
