Finally Friday Challenge

Well here it is another snowy Friday!! A great day to stay in and stamp!
Do you have something in the back of your stamp area that you bought thinking, "when I have time I'll stamp this item." (You know you do!!) Today is the day! Today's challenge is to finally alter that great item you got at Target or wherever for $1.

I knew when I was pregnant with my daughter that I wanted to stamp her name using the monograms, frame and hang them. We didn't pick a name for her until the day of so I didn't get a head start and haven't had time to think about it since! So today I dusted off the frame and monograms and came up with the first letter"R" The mat is 8x8 and the cut out is 5x5. I embossed the R with clear EP over pretty in pink craft ink. I colored and cut out the fairy from fairy nice and attached her with dimensionals.( My daughters room is pink with green accents). I added some 5/8 in celery and 1/4 in pink grosgrain. I gave the fairy some fine glitter in celery on her wings and on select flowers on the dsp. I wanted to put it in the fram and look at it for awhile before I did anything else. I think I'll add some brads in the corners ( and I have to fix the bow since I just realized it is upside-down ooops).
Well good luck and have fun, it feels great to put a check next to this project, well the first letter anyway, 5 to go!!
Don't forget to post a link to your project so we can all check it out!
Thanks for stoppin by!
