Frames for the birthday girl


Happy Memorial Day dear friends !!!!!!

I hope everyone has enjoyed there long weekend !!! I know I sure have that is for sure.

I went to the graveyard and decorated my parents grave along with my Aunt Rosie’s.

Then Saturday we had my oldest granddaughters birthday party. She turned 9. It was sure a hot day but we had a cookout and all the kids played volleyball and played in the pool. Then she got a trampoline for her birthday so they all had a great time in it. And this ol lady got in it too. Oh what a site it was !!!!

So yesterday I had a play day in my craft room finishing up all the projects that had been started for my youngest granddaughter’s birthday. She always wants some craft stuff from me along with her presents and this time she placed her own order along with a picture lol She is a total little diva that is for sure lol

But this is one of her dear friends she gave me a picture of so this is the frame I made for her. I used A Wee Stamp that I got at Whimsy Stamps along with the sentiment and die for it. Then I used a Memory Box die and added some bling. I used some lazer Chipboard from Make It Crafty and colored it with the Silks Acrylic Glaze. The flowers were painted with Glamour Dust Glitter Paint. And I colored my image with my copic’s and spica glitter pens. The paper is some older paper from SU.


The next frame is a image from Sylvia Zet for Susana’s Custom Art and Cards. She has also been colored with copic’s and spica glitter pens.

I used some more lazer chipboard from Make it Crafty and this gorgeous bling flourish is from a very sweet dear friend.

Flowers were painted with glamour dust glitter paint.


All the same things here except I used a Wee image here and the papers are also older SU papers.


I am just about done with my projects one more to go and my desk will be clean again lol I hope to finish it today. We will see.

Thanks so much for stopping bye and seeing me. I know I don’t get on much but do thank each of you that leave me such wonderful comments.

Sending you Big Hugs ((((()))))) And enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend.

  2. Lovely to see you've had some play time & those are terrific projects for your granddaughter - how delightful that she involves you in this way. The way you have taken the colours from the photograph & built the whole frame decoration around that is terrific - even the way you picked out the hair colours in the photo with the adjoining floral spray.
    Take care & good to see you posting. I've not emailed for I didn't want you to feel you had to reply but you're often in my thoughts.
    Much love to you
