PTI - Pinwheels in a Jar

Hello friends!  I have another blog post for today (two in one day...yeah I know), in honor of Papertrey Ink's four year anniversary they are offering up a little contest as well as free digital tags so I thought I would give it a go.  You can read all about it here and maybe join in if you'd like.  Part of the contest is to download the free anniversary tags and create a project using one or all of the tags.  Well I picked the pinwheel tag and started thinking about what I wanted to do with it and this is what came of it.  One of my favorite sets from PTI this past year was the Friendship Jar set so why not pinwheels in a jar?  I stamped the jar image, colored it using Copic markers and then used the sticks from the stamp set Friendship Jar Fall Fillers and attached my paper pinwheels to the top of each one.  I cut the actual print out of the tag down a little so that I could fit it into the center of the jar image and add a scallop mat.  I also used the PTI stamp set Birthday Basics to add the Happy Birthday down the side panel.

Well that's it for me, I hope you had a great weekend!
