MY MEMORY MAKER

A FEW DAYS AGO I SHOWED YOU WHAT
I WAS WORKING ON AND I FINALLY FINISHED
IT...WOO HOO!!!



REMEMBER I STARTED OUT WITH
THIS BEFORE, IT WAS THE
PICTURE WINDOW IN THE FRONT
OF MY HOME BEFORE WE HAD
THE WINDOWS REPLACED..


SO THIS..





THE AFTER...
MY MEMORY MAKER...


IT TOOK ME A WHILE TO FINISH
IT BUT I LOVE IT...
AND
 I CAN'T WAIT TO MAKE
MORE MEMORIES TO ADD TO IT..


I WENT A LITTLE VINTAGE WITH
THE CAMERA PICTURES..
ADDED THE HINGES AND THE PICTURES
OF MY FAMILY..
I ALSO USED BADGE CLIPS INSPIRED BY
PATSY @ THE TRAIN DON'T STOP HERE ANY MORE
SHE USED THEM ON HER PROJECT.



DID ALL THE PICTURES IN A SEPIA TONE..


GRACED IT WITH A FEW NUMBERS
IN THE POTTERY BARN TRADITION...


AND IM VERY HAPPY WITH THE RESULTS...





I HOPE YOU LIKE IT AS MUCH
AS I DO..

    I am working with some old windows now too. I haven't finished mine yet, but love the character that they provide.
