CPS #224

I went to two yard sales today and came back with good stuff for very cheap prices. I was in search of durable storage solutions for my future craft space. I'm replacing anything cardboard/flimsy with plastic or glass containers. At the yard sale that I went to this morning before spin class, I found this set of 4 half pint preserving jars that I'm planning to put buttons/embellishments (pictured) for $1 total. After spin, I went to a yard sale, where I found 2 plastic containers (not pictured). They are already in the dishwasher for cleaning. I'm not sure what I'm going to put in them yet.
The instructor that teaches the second class on Saturdays is going to replace the instructor for Thursday nights. I'm excited about that because I like her more anyway.

It's been quite a foody Sunday. I am trying to gear up for the week ahead so that I'm not struggling to come up with ideas for lunch or dinner. I've tried all these recipes before because I like sticking to the winners. However, when I move to the new place in 2 weeks (!), I will try to branch out.
Here's my take on CPS #224. I really wanted to use some g.c.d. Studios that I bought earlier this year. I planned to use some patterned paper on the top large panel and then have colored cardstock on the bottom. I thought that using the bright blue ribbon would be a good way to separate the two. For the stamps, fortunately, I had the right shades of blue and red for the flowers so that everything coordinated.

Paper: g.c.d. Studios- Chianti Collection
