Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!
Today's project is a very special one and an example of how Stampin' Up! products aren't just for cards...
The photo is of my Gram and it was taken professionally over 70 years ago, in a studio session gifted to her by my Granddad on their engagement. I've taken my inspiration for the colors from the image, including the stunning blue of her eyes, and added some sparkle with Wink of Stella.
Perhaps unsurprisingly she was speechless when she opened the gift. While I'd not thought about it until then, I now plan on doing something similar with more of her precious photos, and I'll share those with you as they are created.
Card: Soft Sky, Pool Party, Mint Macaron and Tempting Turquoise
Tools and embellishments: Botanical Builder Thinlits and Clear Wink of Stella
Other items used: Dollar store frame and hot glue gun.
