For my sister and brother-in-law

This is a project I've been working on for what seems like forever! It is a shadow box frame of a vintage recreation of my sister's marriage license. I got it out of my Memories of a Lifetime Family History Book. I Put their information in and then embellished and framed it. It's a gift for their anniversary which was in April, but I'm going to see them soon and will be able to give it to them in person!

For my Uncle

Here is a shadow box frame that I'm giving my uncle for his belated birthday. He just got to golf at Pebble Beach for his 65th, so there's a spot to put a pic of him on the course.

Mother's Day Gift

Here is the tray table we made for my mother-in-law for Mother's day. It was my first true attempt at decopauge.The sentitment is one I made up. "Moms, like birds, sing sweet songs of love" She loved it, but I hope I can get better with practice.

Here are a few more that I've done. The blue one I made for my friend's graduation and features sea life. The white one is for a wedding and features the doves like the one on the tag.

Newest Bottle

Here's my newest creation. I used a slightly different technique by frosting the bottle instead of etching. This one isn't quite finished being embellished, but you get the idea.
