Family Portrait

We had our portrait taken this summer and I decided to play with a frame so the 2 came together today. I had to take the photo at an angle as I used some acetate over the photo and the light caused reflections. The tag at the bottom is not off balance.

I used Reece SWIC paper and tag for this. The date is stamped from a retired set and stamped with Burnt Umber PH ink. I used Prima flowers, buttons, and white & lime green scrappers floss. I painted the frame brown before I added the paper. Hmmm..... This may end up as a Christmas gift.

I've already started my shopping. We did a few minutes of Black Friday shopping at Walmart - didn't get there until after 8 am and the crowds were tremendous! But we got what we wanted and left! Now I remember why I don't like shopping the day after Thanksgiving!! Did you shop? Did you find what you wanted? Get some great ideas?? Today we're in Tucson at the Tucson Mall then to a niece's birthday party at the Pima Air Museum. Long day coming on!

Great photo & gift Carol! I hate shopping on Black Friday too!I'm the one who gets to hang all the sale signs & tags.. I'm a price changer for a local retail company called Fred Meyers and have had to work the last 32 years on this day!

I missed this post somehow, Carol...I am glad it was listed under your posts for today, or I might have missed it for good, and that would have been sad because I LOVE it. Great job
