Grandpa's Girl

Hello, hello! I hope you're week is going well. Today is Kirsten's last day of school until next Wednesday! Friday is a lieu day at school, so she doesn't go then and here in Canada, Monday is Victoria Day, so no school then either. A week off, yay!!

I took this picture of Kirsten and my Dad (sorry about the glare) when we were over for his birthday and really love it so I thought I would make him a frame for it.

I painted the back and inside the frame with a dark brown and then added a piece of blue My Mind's Eye paper. I used some Heidi Swapp chipboard letters for Grandpa's Girl and covered then with Twinkling H2Os for a bit of a shimmer but not too much sparkle. I didn't want it to be to girly as it is for my Dad, but it's so hard to leave it plain...I added some flowers to using a Spellbinder die and then crumpled them up so they looked a little weathered. The leaves are from a Stampin Up Embosslit and I love how they work.

Overall I am super happy with it and Lance even likes it, so I'm hoping my Dad will too. They are gone to Sandpoint for the long weekend and are leaving tomorrow, so not sure when we'll see then, but in the next couple of weeks sometime. I am also working on another project for him as well. I am hoping to have it done by the end of the weekend!

I hope you have a wonderful day and thank you so much for stopping by!
