Altered Gifts

A couple of posts ago I mentioned that I had been working on some special altered items for Christmas gifts.  Now that Christmas is over I can share them with you :)

First is this 7gypsies altered frame for my mom.  I used the beautiful Fancy Pants Roadshow collection and a whole bunch of gorgeous Prima flowers.  The two photos that are there are from when my mom visited to meet Allison when she was just a few days old.  The two blank sections are reserved for photos from our Christmas visit last week.




Next is this altered clipboard.  When I saw the clipboard that Greta Hammond posted on the Fancy Pants blog a couple months ago, I knew I wanted to make one.  The photo is my sister-in-law and one of my Goddaughters.  Again I used the Fancy Pants Roadshow collection and several Prima flowers. I can't seem to get good photos of any of my projects during these dreary winter months!  This clipboard is so much more beautiful in person.



Here's another 7gypsies altered frame.  This one is for my mother-in-law. I used 7gypsies papers here and lots and lots of beautiful Prima flowers.  The first two photos are from her visit to meet Allison when she was a couple weeks old, and the next two are from our visit in the Fall.  The blank section is reserved for a photo from our Christmas visit earlier this week.




Thanks for stopping by, and have a very happy New Year!!!
