Tessa needed a special birthday present for her friend's 18th birthday this past week. Of course, we knew this day was coming, and it would have been nice if we had not waited until the day of her party to work on her present. It really is something how creativity is at its maximum when there is deadline pressure. I have never been able to figure that out.

We enlarged a photo of the two of them and embellished it with beads and charms. 



Everything was wired on through the foam core board that the photo was mounted to.  Easy peasy.  Of course, I would have gotten better photos if Tessa did not have to run out the door with it about 32 seconds after we finished.

This was perfect. What a FUN gift. I totally agree about creativity & deadlines! I am the same way :-) And running out the door with it 32 seconds after it was made- Priceless :-)
Thanks for sharing
