Vintage Beauty—My Mother

framed beauty with borders

(Click image for larger view.)

One of my favorite Valentine tags this year was made with a vintage photo from Vintage Image Craft. Here is the tag by itself:

Beautiful Doll Tag

Today I used the tag in an 8x8 display frame (Creative Memories). For the grouping, I printed off my mother’s high school graduation picture onto cream cardstock, inked the edges with Vintage Photo, and got out my almost-forgotten chalks to give her a little blush. I added a lot of flowers, lace, ribbons and other embellishments.

Mother (age 85 now) has not been feeling well, and I am hopeful this little display will help lift her spirits!

Hello Barbara,

I bet you have put a smile on your mother's face today!
It's the little things in life that makes life important.
although your mom's time is limited now, i think she will think of her wellfilled life when she sees your feminine display!

Greetings from belgium
