Bloggerette Sorority Party *RUSH* ~ Baby Gift Project ~


Hey there friends!
Welcome to our Sorority Party.

We were asked to copy a sweet picture
of 5 gals and then create something with it...

So...
I  decided to put mine in a picture frame.
Now this picture frame needed a little bit of work
since it was cracked..but you would
never know it now!

Okay, we were also asked to show
a picture of ourselves with our
finished project.

I had my daughter take my my picture and
then I narrowed it down to 2 pictures.
Well as things go in my life, hubs like one
of the pictures and dd liked the other.
So...that's why I am showing you both, is that okay?
*********************************************************
Today I worked on a Baby Gift Project
I had swirlling around in my head.  I really LOVE
those Photo Boxes that you can find
at the Hobby Stores.  I usually
paint my roses on them..but I
knew that my friends daughter loves
vintage images.  I found some vintage baby
images and began covering the lid.
I then covered the box with cute stickers
that I found at Hobby Lobby (love that store!). 

I started with a White Box
Some pretty papers and images
I also found a cute Momma Brag Book for Pictures
that I also embellished to go with the Box.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Lorena

Hello, Lorena, you are a doll, and it is good to put faces with names. You did an amazing transformation on your frame, and I adore that vintage image in it. I am totally hooked on vintage images. Can spend hours at the computer looking at them. The baby box and brag book are cute as can be. Your daughter's friend will love them. Enjoy your weekend, sweet friend~ Vicki
