Old Fashioned Candy Jars

This week is Impression Obsession week at Stamper's Dream! IO has released its new stamps for summer and they are fun, fun, fun!! For today's project, I chose the candy jars stamp. Isn't it adorable? I am going to have fun coloring this image so many different ways!
We have the cutest old fashioned candy store down in Canal Park. Its the tourist area down by Lake Superior. They have chocolate ore boats and chocolate Lake Superior agate candies, not to mention all the classic goodies. The shop is called Hepzibah's and its located in the DeWitt Seitz Marketplace.

I found these great jars at Michael's, but the best thing is, the large ovals fit perfectly over the label already attached to the jar. :)
Make sure and check out the rest of the team's creations:
Hope you had a good weekend, it had to be warmer that ours, we didn't get above 47 degrees this weekend. No joke. My poor plants! thanks for stopping by!!
