Altered frames are the perfect gift

Each year my girls work for hours on their gifts for their grandmother for her birthday... this year was no exception...they decided to create some frames for her to hold their end of the year school pictures. We bought some inexpensive white frames that were to be hung from ribbon and first painted them red (her favorite color). We then added a thin coat of varnish so it would be shiny... next came the dew drops for some texture.
They each then stamped the swirly image from the April Showers Flowers perfectly clear stamp set on either side of their picture. Here are the finished frames...I think they did a great job and they were a HUGE hit with Grammy!!

Happy crafting....Lynda
