Start Everyday with a smile and some Pinque Peacock

It is my day to share a project at Pinque Peacock.  I have an adorable project to share with you today. This is an altered CD. It was one some people were throwing out. It didn't play anymore so I turned it into this picture holder. You just slide the picture in under the flowers.

The paper is MME Sweet Caroline.  The paper says Start Everyday with a Smile and I love that sentiment.  I added a Pinque Peacock Pin. I made it with beads from the Bead Buffet and then added some roses and pearls. I love how it turned and and plan on sticking it on my desk with a picture of Princess Buttercup.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your day :)

I also promise to do better with blogging. Since the school year is almost over I won't have to deal with lots of crud and will have lots of time to craft :D

Celebrate Mother's blog hop

Celebrate Mothers Blog Hop (May 11)
Welcome to the Celebrate mother's blog hop!!!  If you are hopping along with us, then you should be here from Nancy!  If not, then go back to Lynda's blog at Memories in Tyme for the very beginning - you don't want to miss out on all the GREAT idea's along the way!!!
Mothers - we all have one...or are one - they are a necessary part of our existence - and today, we celebrate THEM!  We have our own mom's, our mother-in-law's, step-mom's, surrogate mom's, our sister's who turn in to a mother figure, Aunt's and Grandma's.....  People who are in our lives that help us to become the women we are today - this blog hop is all in celebration of each and every one of them!!!

I wanted to make my mom a nice frame. I love that even though I am a grown up when I make my mom stuff she still puts it up in her house.  So here is what I made.

I painted my frame pink, and then I had some chipboard letters. I used pink ink to make the color and then I used some glitter glue to make them sparkle.  The flowers were from my stash and I added some buttons to the center.  Then I used some ribbon around the outside and I just adhered it with my atg so it didn't slide off the frame.

I am also entering this in the DL ART Thankful Thursday Challenge Use Flowers.
