Snowflake Picture Frame

Happy Christmas Eve Eve!  It's almost here!  Are you ready?  I am so close!  It's a bit of a crafty Christmas for me, and I would like it to be even more so of a crafty Christmas but time is almost out!  Oh well!  My shopping is done, my wrapping is almost done (have to do it when the kiddos are sleeping otherwise I will be wrapping the same gift several times as Carter doesn't seem to get it!)  I made a picture frame for Chad's grandmother last night and like it so much that I went and bought more to make my mom and Chad's mom one too!  Here it is:

 I bought a plain white 5 by 7 wood frame at Michaels.  I stamped it with a Hero Arts sentiment with Staz on ink, I took the glass and everything out of the frame when I did it so that it would lay as flat as it could.  When I stamped it I took my time lifting the block from the frame because sometimes staz on sticks and not much ink comes off.  Practice on the back like I did to see what works! I decorated the frame with a few silver and sparkly teal Nestabilities snowflakes that I cut out at my photographer/friends house!  Simple but I think it compliments the picture perfect and makes a great gift!  It's great to add to a gift or even alone.

I want to share a cute photo of Ariel:

I hope that you have a great Christmas!  I am so blessed by all of you!
