Picture Frame

This is one of my favorite projects that I have created lately.  It is just an inexspensive picture frame that I have painted and covered with designer paper and cardstock. (I apologize for the picture quality. The colors aren't quite right.)
To add more interest and texture to the card stock I ran the pieces through my bigshot in an embossing folder berfore attaching to the frame.

You can really see the embossing on the flower below. 

I also squeezed up the sides of the petals on each flower to give them more dimension.

 Below you can really see the dimension.

The picture in the frame was taken last year while we were in Lousiana.  We were about to me Shelby Stanga from Ax Men.  Let me tell you that man is funny crazy.  We couldn't stop laughing.  If you watch Ax Men and know who I am talking about, Shelby is not faking anything.  He is that crazy.  He is also super nice.  We had a really great visit and took all kinds of pictures with him.

Well thanks for stopping by and I would love for you to leave me a comment,

Travel Log

Look!!  I am updating!! Can you believe it!?
I titled this post Travel Log because that is the stamp set I used to create this page.  This is the page that the class I teach made this week.  I now need to make a second page to go with it that has a title on it.  I didn't leave any room for a title on this page. Oh, well.
The hardest part of creating this page was stamping the map across the top.  Once I got that (it took me three tries) the rest was pretty easy.
I cased a lot of this page from someone else and I need to go back and look who it was and post her name here.  I always like to give credit where credit is do.

Everything I used to create this project was from stampin' up!
Thanks for stopping by!!!
