My dear friend, Denise's, birthday was yesterday, and I was glad to have a chance to make a little something to celebrate the occasion. A few weeks ago, I made this little frame for her daughter, Deanna, and Denise really seemed to like it. That, of course, was good for me since it took away the issue of exactly what to get her for her big day. I grabbed a frame from Michael's and went to town. I really like how it turned out. The picture in it is a few years old, but she can change the picture to a more recent one if she wants.
All papers, buttons, and the chipboard accent are from BasicGrey and the letter stickers are from American Crafts. The hearts are made from pipe cleaners. I also used some embroidery floss, mini brads, and wire. I have been enjoying making things other than scrapbook layouts lately. It's nice to mix things up a bit. I think I might make another trip to Michael's tomorrow to find something else to alter. It is just so much fun.
I see that I have quite a few visitors from Pennsylvania. I was just wondering if you PA people are scrapbookers or not? Do you guys blog? Or both? Or neither? Just curious. I often feel like I am the only person in PA (or at least Northeast PA) who scraps. I'd love to get to know more people in my area who enjoy this wonderful hobby, too. If you are from Northeast PA, drop me a comment and let me know.
I hope everyone is enjoying their week. I know many of you are sending your kiddos back to school soon. We have two weeks left. The summer really flew by, didn't it? I'm off to enjoy the rest while I can. Have a good one and thanks for stopping by!
