This is  for the design team at The Crafty Scrapper.  We were each given a die cut on chipboard and we were given no directions.  So, once I put it all together I decided to do layouts of my parents.  The middle photo is shortly after they were married in 1949.  The other two are individual photos of them.  My Dad has passed away and my Mom is 80.  

I knew that these photos would be perfect for the paper that I chose. I love this vintage feel and hopefully you will too.  I added the paper very carefully and then painted parts of the paper with white paint.  I added Tim Holtz hinges which I painted as well.  I used Prima flowers to accent the middle photo along with a little bird and Maya Roads stick pins.  At the top of also added another little bird and flowers.

This is the back of the frame which I decided it needed to be decorated as well to make it all fit together.  On the left I added a silver heart and placed a capital S which Storey is our family name.  On the middle I placed Mom and Dad 1949.  On the right I added a beautiful antique button and tied ribbons around it with a letter F for family!

Thank you so much Carolyn and The Crafty Scrapper for giving us on the design team something so beautiful to create and to use our own imagination!!!

Thank you all for looking and please visit The Crafty Scrapper!!

  1. Your little frame project is SO LOVELY, Ginger! I really do love that you decorated the outside so nicely. You took such loving care and decorated the frame with such care and creativity!

    Love those pics of your mom and dad! That's the way I remember my heart....When I met them about 12 years after these photos were taken, it seemed they had not aged a bit!
