Craft "To Do" List

What's on your Craft "To Do" List that you've been wanting to check off?  Oh just do it!  That's what I did when attempting to alter this wooden picture frame on National Scrapbooking Day.  I had a long list of items "To Do", but I'm really excited about this altered frame for my mother.   It's personal and ready for her favorite photo.  
These flowers were made by me using the EK Success flower punches.  When she saw my receipt one day from a stash of flowers I purchased, she challenged me to make my own.

The metal embellishments are over 10 years old and in my stash ready to use.  No more hoarding in 2014. Can you see the burlap in the background?  The pearls on the right side of the bird came from her stash.
The 1st piece of metal came from Mom, The baby feet represents her grandson, the crown represents my name, the cross represents her 'Faith'.  That's her word!  The heart represents the love she gives to all.  The swirly thing came from her stash from Christmas as well as the sheet of round circles underneath the baby feet.
The scripture is a canvas chipboard piece I picked up at Joann's recently and the four numbers represents home.

I can't wait to see how she analyzes it.  She is great with details and I'm thankful for her gift of creativity that she passed down to me.  Thanks for stopping by.  Now tell me what's on your Craft "To Do" List that you are waiting to check off?  Just Do It!   Happy Mother's Day ladies


Love Princess
