Upcycled Wedding Photo

Submitted to Anything But a Card Challenge 9 and to Crop Chocolate Challenge #43

Anything but a Card said - anything goes.  Easy!  Crop Chocolate's challenge from Julie and Brenna was:

"The Design Team term is almost over. For this week's challenge, look back through The Crop and make a project inspired by one of the current design team members."

This is my wedding photo.  I had it in a closet because, lets face's in sad shape!  Inspired by Michele (by belle) on

Inspired by Michele (by belle) - the mosaic frame, I decided to try her mosaic upcycled frame.  I used Fancy Pants Hopscotch and Echo Park Paradise Beach papers. I also used some bling from Teresa Collins, Tim Holtz distress ink and crackle paint, and some Timeless Twine. The Red and Green flowers and stick pen are from UmWow Studios.  The rest of the flowers are home-made using Nestabilities blossom dies.

I'm super proud of the final project; it's almost as colorful as my wedding was.  My dear husband also likes it because the banners show our wedding date, so he has a reminder of our anniversary on the wall! 

Craftily yours,

Karen (karey2005)
