Bo Knows Beauty- S&S Forum Challenge

Are you tired yet??  I am!  Last post for tonight and on to some R&R w/ a yummy rummy drink.

Freaky Freebie Challenge at the Smeared and Smudged Forum lets you download a FREE digital image from Smeared Ink.  This month featured a sweet little gal so named Killer Bo Peep.

I had an empty canning jar that I did not know what to do with.  I have also been wanting to make a sugar scrub, but have yet to buy all ingredients.  Went on to Google and found a facial "mask" recipe that I had all the ingredients for.  How perfect is this to fit in my personal challenge to use a mask somewhere in my project!

For my project Bo is the head of a beauty line that only uses the freshest ingredients.  Here is her Lambkin Honey Facial Mask:

Bo had to be altered somewhat, since in the original she is frowning.  Now, the leader of a beauty line needs to friendly and smiling.  So I used a fine tip Black Sharpie to adjust her mouth.
I also altered the bow in her hair to have polka dots and the staff bottom to a sharp point.
Markers and a gold marker, to color in images.

Saying by Bo's head is stamped with Basic Black ink. It is from a set called Teeny Tiny Wishes, from Stampin' Up! (SU!)

I used same sharpie to write in other sayings.

Stuffing from one of my kids pillow is glued to her hair and on jar.

The recipe I wrote on inside of Bo tag fits perfect into canning jar.  I am going to try it out this week and see how long it lasts.  Will post an update on how recipe does in a week.

I used some retired SU! chevron fabric for cover.  Bows are Summer Starfruit Satin Stitched and Daffodil Delight Seam Binding Ribbon.  Large grey ruffle is Basic Gray Two-Tone Ribbon (retired SU!).

I used a hat pin and hand made skull from Creepy Glowbugg.

Tag is stamped with Basic Gay ink, set Chalk Talk, and cut with Chalk Talk Framelit (SU!).
