Jaded Blossom Monthly challenge

Hey there crafty friends.
I'm slowly settling into this new lifestyle of mine of being unemployed after working 80+hrs /week for the past 5 months.  It's a little strange.  Not sure exactly what I want to be when I grow up...ha ha ha.  Thankfully the job I got laid off from is paying severance for a couple of months and I have time to figure it out!  
I've had these little milk bottles that I picked up at Target back around Valentine's Day.  I didn't have time to make a project with them then...but I figured the color worked out well for a 4th of July project.  This is a pretty simple one folks!!!  I filled the bottle with some America Mix Skittles that I also picked up at Target.  I have a friend that doesn't care for chocolate (I'm not sure how we are even friends...I mean...who doesn't like chocolate???) so I'm hoping to catch up with her before the 4th to be able to give this to her!!

I'm entering this into the Jaded Blossom Monthly Challenge.  
The stamp is Bless the USA and the tag is the Treat Tag Die

I hope you have noticed my new blog design.  I chose this one for the Bumble Bees because the meaning of my name happens to be Bee...and my husband always tells me I'm a busy little bee.  Credit goes to the Bomb Squad Blogs.  If you are in the market for a new blog design check them out!!

Thanks for stopping by!
