Pictures and a Present

Hi there just thought I would stop by and share with you the framed pictures I was telling you about last week in my creative space. They were super easy to make and not to expensive either. The frames I used are from Ikea and the matting I picked up from my local art supplier for $1 because it was in their off cut bin (bargin). I used some scraps for the butterflies using my Martha Stewart punch which I bought at Spotlight and for the letter I traced around a MDF letter and then cut it out of scrapbooking paper. Because the frames I used didn't allow for things to be raised too high I used some dimensionals for a bit of dimension but that was all that would fit. That's one more thing I've finished for Christmas, still that sewing to go.

I mentioned present, well it was a little gift I picked up for myself at Trade Secret this morning. I spied these cute Matryoshkas over at Mel's blog and wanted some for myself but it wasn't until I found them today for $12.95 that I thought well why not! Have a great day!
