Fun Challenge

I had a friend give me a challenge recently! She had a glass plate from an air freshener and wondered if I could do something with it! Soon as I saw it I knew exactly what I could do with it! If you look below you'll see what I did

Before;



After;



I made it into a picture frame that will go on my desk tomorrow! I used a flower from the Stampin Up Pretties and colored it with my Purely Pomegranate ink pad and added beads with my Crystal Effects for the center. The words are from the Stampin up Set called "Wonderful Favorites". I really like this set as it suits both cardmaking, scrapbooking, altering (obviously :)!) etc! It has the words "wonderful" and "favorite" in big script writing and then it has family member suggestions like "mother", "son", "daughter" etc.... to include extended family members like aunts, "in-laws"! I see lots of possibilities to cut down on my journaling here! My handwriting stinks to this was a worthy investment for me! I also used some of our new double sided designer paper called "Ginger Blossoms"! If you look a few posts back you can see what a full sheet looks like!

Thanks for the challenge Chantal.....got any more?! LOL!

What a great idea for an otherwise useless item. I have thrown these out in the past - won't be anymore. Thanks
