Altered Picture Frame

Good morning!! Wow, it has been one heck of a week!! Football practice, football game, Open House, PTSA Board Mtgs...whew!! I am SO ready for the weekend to rest & relax! Wonder if that will actually happen?? :)

Today is my day to post over at Becky's Sweet Creations! Our DT challenge this week was to find a fun project of our choice...something that we have been needing to work on, wanting to work on, or just something new we wanted to try. On Monday afternoon I got a call for an order of an altered picture frame! SO I thought this was perfect to post for today's challenge!

The "order" was for a friend of hers that son is getting married this weekend. SO she wanted something to give to the Mother-of-the-Groom to put a picture of the married couple OR she could put a picture of her & her son on his wedding day! So I knew I wanted to do a wedding type theme but thought if the mother decided to put a pic of her & her son, I didn't think she would want it to look like THEY got married! LOL So I decided to do a cream/gold color scheme with some flowers & pearls!
I also inked the edges with a chestnut ink! It looks so elegant & not too "weddingy"!! Ha!! What kind of stupid word is that?? But I think you get my point! :)

This weekend is the big 100 cart blog hop over at My Cricut Craft be sure to come back for that! Also, Oct 1st (Sat) is World Card Making Day!! I am having my monthly club meeting on Sat, so we will definitely be making cards with plenty of pics to post afterwards!! Busy weekend...but a good busy! Crafty busy!! :) 

Until next time....
