Treasure

Hello! Hope you are having a great weekend! I made this little treasure project for my friend Amy, a super fantabulous cardmaker! Check out her beautiful family photo - a treasure indeed! I "met" Amy through Card Patterns - she always stopped by to leave me the sweetest comments on my early cards (disasters!) which meant the world to a novice cardmaker. She left a comment on one of my layouts that she wished she could just send me her photos to scrap...So i did! Of course, she had to send me the most beautiful photo ever - I love that they are all hugging each other...so instead of a layout, she got an altered item! :)

The photo frame was from Ikea which I painted blue (I mixed blue, green and white to get his shade). When the paint dried, I added crackle paint in rock candy (LOVE this!) which gave subtle cracks and a light glossy finish. I only used one sheet of patterned paper (Webster's Pages of course). Ribbon, tulle, pearls, flowers, bling butterflies.chipboard from K & Co...rub-on from Stemma.

So now you know I take my comments very seriously...*LOL*.
