Merry Christmas Eveyone!!!!! Have a great day with your family & friends!
This week’s challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations
is one which I am sure will appeal to everyone. Anything BUT Christmas
. Yep, you have a free reign! Be sure to check out what Gwen
For my sample, I decided to create a Free Standing Double Photo Frame as a small Chrissie Pressie for my Aunt.
With having Christmas at my cousins, I thought it be a great idea to create this so that she could put a couple of photos of her great-granddaughter in it. Ally is only 2 years of age & it is her grandparents we are having lunch with.
This idea has been forming in my mind for a couple of weeks now, & to see it come to life is something else. I am really happy with the final result. Mind you, so many ideas have popped into my head about what I will do for my next one.
Once I had assembled the inside of the frame, I then decided to make the front into a card – Jill won’t be expecting the inside! She will only think it is just another card!
For the card front, I wanted to make it all “girly girly” while not being too bright! I think I have pulled it off!
Mind you, it is still sitting on the kitchen cupboard waiting to be wrapped. I also created a matching envelope & matching Tissue Paper to wrap the envelope – sorry no photos as I did that last night after I had taken all the photos.
