Come see us in Somerset Memories this month!

My submission to Somerset Memories for their "A gift from the heart" challenge is published in this month's issue! I'm so excited because this little project is very dear to me.
It was sort of a collaboration with my daughter, Kara.  You see, she had drawn a picture of her future wedding dress. It inspired me to create a keepsake that we might share in the future on her wedding day.
I mounted the picture on an old book cover and decorated it with lace and cheesecloth. I created a "clipboard" using a vintage brooch.  On the back is a little pouch where the original copy can be stored.  It hangs from a repurposed rhinestone necklace.
I posted about this project in the making here if you would like to take a closer look.  I can't wait to get this back from Stampington so I can display this at home. Thanks for stopping by to take a look.  I'm one happy mom today....xoxo
