I made this frame for him (okay, for us). The photo was taken just this past weekend at the wedding of two sweet young friends. I had seen Julia Stainton do her embedded rhinestone technique on her blog, and I have been dying to try it. I'm thrilled with how it turned out! I covered the frame with Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint in Antique Linen, then I sponged some Walnut Stain Distress Ink over the cracks. I lightly stamped a sheet music background (from CHF) randomly over the frame using the Walnut Stain ink.
For the flower I used a combination of BasicGrey Boxer and MFT Take Note papers. I cut them with Blossom and Peony Nestabilities. The button is from the new MFT Earth Girl buttons. The sentiment is from Clearly Sentimental about You -- one of my all-time favorite sentiment sets.
While I'm feeling so much love, I want you to celebrate with me! How about a little BLOG CANDY? I'm giving away designer samples of three MFT sets: Coffee? Tea?, Thinking of Hoo?, and Snow Bunny Flopsey (thank you , Kim, for your generosity!). These sets are unlabeled and unpackaged -- they're the same sets we receive on the Design Team. I'm also throwing in some of my favorite papers, ribbons and embellies! :)
So, who wants to participate in my little love fest?? Simply leave a comment here on THIS post between now and Tuesday, June 22, at 11:59 EST. Tell me about your wedding, your favorite anniversary, or any little love story you have to share! I'll use Random.org to choose a winner and post it a week from today, Wednesday, June 23. Sound good?
I'm off to enjoy the day with my hubby -- Happy Anniversary, Chris!
Thanks for stopping by -- I always appreciate it!
Have a great day!
